    Why the edit? I am sure that the govenment is wiretapping the NYT.

    Per the article in the OP:

    Public documents may be requested under the Freedom of Information Act by any public entity--an individual, corporation, organization, association, etc. At this time there are a flood of requests due to concern about NSA spying. In the case of the NYT, reporters made the request for research purposes.

    It will be interesting to see the outcome of the various requests and/or suits.
