Comments from mySociety:
We’ve recently added “Citations” for linking to places where FOI requests have been referenced. We’ve never had much success with getting journalists to link back to requests from their news articles (they don’t want people to exit the site), so we’ve tried the reverse approach to give them a little more publicity by another link to their article. Automating the addition of these sounds like a great idea! https://www.mysociety.org/2020/01/14/has-your-foi-request-been-used-in-a-news-sto ry-now-you-can-let-everyone-know/
