Cutting Out the Media

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has figured out a way to not have to deal with the media.

He's starting his own state-run taxpayer-funded news outlet.

Talk about going head first down the slippery slope.

Pence is planning in late February launch of "Just IN," a website and news outlet that will feature stories and news releases written by state press secretaries and is being overseen by a former Indianapolis Star reporter, Bill McCleery.

The news service will make pre-written news stories available to Indiana media, as well as sometimes break news about his administration, according to documents obtained by The Indianapolis Star.

Needless to say, most members of the media think this is an awful idea and if you think it is only and Indiana media problem, consider this.

Pence is considering a run for the White House. 

If he runs, we're guessing he will not be getting many votes from the people in the press.

Just saying...
