To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
—All investigative records concerning Vizio, Inc. and Vizio Inscape Services, LLC, located at 38 Tesla, Irvine, CA 92618, from January 1, 2014, to the present.
—All emails, memorandum, opinion letters, and communications mentioning Vizio, Inc. and Vizio Inscape Services, LLC, from January 1, 2014, to the present.
—All records, documents, or communications related or pertaining to Vizio, Inc. and Vizio Inscape Services, LLC, the 2014-2017 investigation into the company, and/or the 2017 settlement thereof, as described at https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/press-releases/2017/02/vizio-pay-22-million-ftc-state-new-jersey-settle-charges-it, from January 1, 2014, to the present.
If you need to discuss this request, I can be reached at 212-493-4267.
I request that I not be charged search or review fees because I qualify as a representative of the news media, pursuant to FOIA and the applicable federal regulations. I am a senior editor at The Hollywood Reporter, where I write daily about legal and regulatory matters. Additionally, I have written for Bloomberg, Slate, New York Magazine, and other publications.
At 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(4)(A)(ii), the FOIA describes “a representative of the news media” as “any person or entity that gathers information of potential interest to a segment of the public, uses its editorial skills to turn the raw materials into a distinct work, and distributes that work to an audience.” In writing about legal and regulatory issues for the general public, I provide extensive commentary on governmental "raw materials."
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.
Thank you for your submission. The FTC will review your request.
