Wisconsin State Journal‘s Phil Brinkman: Why request for Bill Cronon’s email isn’t news

But there isn’t one “correct” use for the records law. When someone asks to view public records, they’re really just posing a question. And there are no dumb questions. The answer, if there is one, is revealed once the records are released….

Stories about records requests being denied, maybe. Stories about misconduct and hidden agendas when those turn up, absolutely. But exercising one’s right to find out what their government is up to? Thankfully, that’s business as usual.
