The Year in Closed Government

How a private email network exposed the secret dealings of top government officials

by Justin Horwath and Joey Peters

To Serve the Governed, Not the Governors
. Each December, SFR publishes a list of the year’s top 10 stories. But this year, one story overshadowed them all: closed government.

At SFR, we pride ourselves on our commitment to old-fashioned investigative reporting. We consider it our duty to find out what our government—of, by and for the people—is really doing, and then to inform our readers so they can make educated choices.
