MuckRock News

MuckRock is an open government news organization that aims to make tools to keep our government transparent and accountable. Their website makes it easy for you to quickly file Freedom of Information Act or public records requests. They allow users to hold their government accountable on any subject, and will guide the requests through the system so the government does not disregard the requests. MuckRock also acts as a news organization, analyzing the results of their news worthy FOIA requests and demanding accountability if they do not receive an answer. Currently, they are conducting a Drone Census of the United States, filing public records requests around the country that ask police agencies if they plan on buying domestic drones for surveillance purposes.
