The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press has released a survey of journalists on the longstanding FOIA rule that a release to one is a release to all. Most journalists generally support the rule, but many seek a delay in the release to the original requester to the release of the information to the rest of the world.
This debate has become a bit of a heated topic as the federal government moves to online portals for the administration of FOIA requests. These portals generally allow anyone to see what was requested and released in almost real time. Many journalists feel that they lose a competitive edge when the results of their releases are published to the public at the same time they get the information. However, the flip side of this argument is that journalists, as members of the news media, generally do not have to pay fees for the information where a member of the general public would have to pay for this information.
The Department of Justice is supposed to be reviewing this issue and is allegedly having a meeting with "journalists" in September. Of course, with the advent of the internet and changes made to the FOIA law in 2007, it's difficult to even classify who is a "journalist" in the FOIA world.
It's a big confusing issue and will continue to be debated for, at least, the near future.
