“We write to urge you to take immediate action to fix an anti-consumer, baseless practice implemented by the credit reporting agencies. Congress required the national credit reporting agencies to operate a free, central source for obtaining credit reports. They have done so, but in creating the site, http://www.annualcreditreport.com/, the credit reporting agencies have blocked web links from reputable consumer sites such as Privacy Rights Clearinghouse and Consumers Union, and from mainstream news web sites.
