Freedom of Information Creates Exposure at University of California

Organizations subject to Freedom of Information are on notice that if they lie, they’re more likely to be caught.

The San Francisco Chronicle on February 9th contained a headline story about the University of California’s hiring practices. It appears it lied about the nature of a substantial bonus given to one of its senior executives.

The University of California is a public organization, and as such all of its records (including email) are accessible to the public. The reporter sifted through emails that revealed a very different story than that promulgated by UC publicly.
