The Times made a Freedom of Information Act (FoIA) request in June 2017 for FCC server logs related to the system for accepting public comments on FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's repeal of net neutrality rules. This led to a months-long process in which the Times repeatedly narrowed its public records request in order to overcome the FCC's various objections. “FCC’s mishandling of comment process”The Times' complaint notes that "The FCC's mishandling of the public comment process for the proposed rule has been well documented." In December, the FCC told the Times that this would not satisfy its security concerns, so the Times narrowed its request again. FCC stands by security claimWhen contacted by Ars today, the FCC insisted it was correct to deny the Times' request.
