Gov’s office to agencies: Report all media contacts

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter’s communications director, Mark Warbis, is warning state agencies that they must inform his office of “ALL media inquiries,” and that Warbis must review any agency press release before it’s sent out if it’s anything “that might be controversial at all.” In an email to all state agencies, Warbis wrote, “We are not looking to usurp the role of agency directors in any way, but only to ensure a level of consistency and uniformity in our public and media messaging.” This “media contact protocol,” he wrote, is something that "requires your full compliance."
