Stunned. That’s how I felt when I heard about Gov. Mike Pence’s bold overreach to toss the media aside and have state government run the news.
His new taxpayer-funded news agency, which is headed by a former journalist, will write pre-written news stories and “break” news that will favor the Pence Administration.
