So if Mike Pence is Limp Gasbag “on decaf”, it perhaps stands to reason that State-run media” (Limbaugh’s more recent term for the Mainstream Media (MSM)) will be displaced by, well… state-run media.

(2015) Gov. Mike Pence is starting a state-run taxpayer-funded news outlet that 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

One question that can’t be answered until after the news service begins operation is whether it will be used to provide additional information to the public and media or used to circumvent the press, said Steve Key, executive director of the Hoosier State Press Association, which lobbies for newspapers at the Statehouse.

“It’s not uncommon throughout history for governments to do what they can to control the message,” Key said. “Is that done in a benign way because they’re trying to get more info out to the public, or is it done with hidden motivations in making sure their message is seen in the best light possible?”

And what sorts of things could happen in the US once tehDonald grows weary of actually having to govern (as he’s said numerous times) and leaves to set up his own private media empire. Or if the delayed Trump tax audit actually produces a huuuge scandal beyond all the overlaps with the Russian oligarchs.

More troubling is that the Veepstakes wound up to be pretty conventional, with Trump allowing himself to be reduced to some apparently mundane choices.

More interesting is that Tim (No one’s idea of a liberal hero) Kaine is fluent in Spanish, but still bears the mark of losing the House to the GOP when he was DNC chair in 2010.
