"I read about this EPA document on a news blog last year and want a copy." "Representative Ellison mentioned a report on Twitter. How do I find it?" Surprising as it is to library staff, media doesn't focus on the same citation level as we would like. Sometime all you have is a popular title, an author's last name, perhaps an agency identified.
