The NY Times has a feature on Bloomberg News's attempt to get the Federal Reserve to disclose information about exactly who was helped by the bailout—and how much they got. The Fed never responded to Bloomberg News's Freedom of Information Act request from September 2008, so the company sued. The lawsuit said, "The documents that Bloomberg seeks are central to understanding the government’s response to the most cataclysmic financial crisis in America since the Great Depression." According to the Times, one of the Fed's worries is that "savvy traders could quickly get their hands on such data in the future and use it to their advantage even as the government was trying to stabilize the markets." The issue is at the appeal courts now.
