The Obama administration set a record again for censoring government files or outright denying access to them last year under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, according to a new analysis of federal data by The Associated Press. The analysis of new FOIA data released by U.S. Department of Justice on Tuesday, covered all requests to 100 federal agencies during fiscal 2014 under the Freedom of Information Act.
