I know that the First Amendment...

…doesn't specifically mention Governors, but this still sounds outrageous, not to mention illegal...
Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is a public official accountable to taxpayers. But he is demanding a news blackout tomorrow when he releases the state’s budget plan. Kasich has forbidden reporters to broadcast any videos, photos or audio recordings during or after his afternoon budget briefing for the press.
The Ohio press corps should show up with every recording device they can find and force him to try to enforce that demand.
