Indiana’s governor will hold a briefing today on that state-run news outlet

Good morning. Here are 10 media stories.

  1. Time for some gov-splaining

    Indiana Gov. Mike Pence plans to clear up all this confusion about whether he’s starting a state-run news agency or they’re just doing PR. Pence will hold a media briefing Wednesday morning. «Reports that this was intended to be a news agency, I think just represent an understandable misunderstanding based on some internal communications that I read about in the press.» (Indianapolis Star) | The Society of Professional Journalists will be watching. «It’s the Society’s position that the press is not free when elected officials serve as editor and publisher. SPJ will be monitoring Just IN moving forward.» (SPJ)

  2. It has been 29 years since Challenger exploded

  5. ‘You got it wrong, boy — uh, son.’

    Augusta County Supervisor Tracy Pyles complained to (Staunton, Virginia) News Leader reporter Calvin Trice about an article and called him «boy,» then «son.» Trice is black and 43 years old. «‘It came in the middle of a tirade against my report … that was expected,’ Trice said. ‘But when that word came up, that’s the only thing about that whole scenario that surprised me. That one word. It’s the first time it got uncomfortably personal.'» (News Leader)

Now I teach you.» (The Intercept)

  7. Does anyone actually say ‘following’ or ‘prior to?’
