While government transparency is a must and not something that should be even argued, as a taxpayer I don't want to see my hard earned money wasted on chasing down information for "for profit" media. I hope the posting of some of the information requests as given a slight insight as to some of the trivial and inane requests that are made. The volume can be mind blowing as the media outlets go beserk looking for something to scoup before the competitors. Or a business is looking for an "in". This is a widely based problem across the country and kudos for BCF for taking the step. Business and media should pay their way not taxpayers.
