“Nice sentiment, but FOIL only applies to government records. While the mainstream media might be firmly up the White House’s butt that doesn’t mean they are a branch of government and FOIL is inapplicable.”
You don’t need FOIL. In this day and age of the internet, I am sure such information is easily accessable from public sources. It could be just as simple as collecting and publishing the information.
Which may or may not be the case.
However, the post I was responding to was suggesting a lawsuit like the one filed. Such a lawsuit is generally only available under FOIL which, as you appear to concede, does not apply.
Where FOIL might come in would be to get the reporters' names and then submit requests for their voter registration, property addresses, etc.
