Is it harder to get public information these days? Are the days of hiding emails in personal accounts over? Experts will weigh in these issues and more. Mick Dumke, Bill Ruthhart, Stacy St. Clair and Jeff Coen weigh in.

This video was taken during FOIA Fest 2017, which brought journalists together to share tips and tools on how to dig for the truth using the Freedom of Information Act, including panels and training sessions on everything from finding records hidden in plain sight to analyzing data for hard-hitting investigations.
