Pravda on the Plains: July 20, 2017

Dear Mr. VP,

Here’s something I learned today that I didn’t know about you.

As governor of Indiana, you tried to start a state media outlet. It would have broken stories about your own administration and competed with the free press.

Not surprisingly, no one thought this was a good idea except for you and your communications staff, and so it didn’t happen. 

Some critics called JustIN (the name of the failed project) “Pravda on the Plains”. Pravda was the official newspaper of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. 


Clearly your troubled relationships with the free press and the truth extend much further into the past than 1/20/2017.
