MANHATTAN (CN) - Fox News demands that the U.S. Treasury produce documents about the AIG and Citigroup bailouts.
In its federal FOIA complaint, Fox claims that "an informed public is essential to the national debate currently being conducted in Congress and the media," and that "Oversight and accountability are critical concerns for the American public."

Fox is represented by Steven Mintz with Mintz & Gold LLP.
