From: Emma Best

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Files mentioning the Reporters’ Committee of the Freedom of the Press (RCFP), including but not limited to the FBI's investigation into The Village Voice's publication of the Pike Committee Report. The FBI has previously disclosed this investigation, with public details identifying the group in question. The Bureau previously improperly redacted the group's name, citing privacy concerns. These redactions do not apply, as case law affirms that organizations have no right to privacy.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Emma Best

I am appealing the integrity of the search, as the Bureau has already released files on the organization.
