To Whom It May Concern,

Thank you for the acknowledgement. I have noticed, however, that I have been classified as a commercial requester. This is an error. I am a journalist for MuckRock--a FOIA-oriented news service. Here is an example of work I've done with them.

In addition to contributing to MuckRock, I also write for a number of other news organizations, including BDC Wire, Scout Magazines and DigBoston. Here are a couple of my clips from those publications where I have used records from FOI requests.

And a number where I have not:

It's clear from these links that I am a journalist and am requesting these documents as a journalist; therefore, I herby request that my classification be corrected to reflect my status as a media requester.

I hope that this matter can be resolved in a timely manner so as not cause any delays in the requesting process.

Thank you,

Emily Hopkins
