Just For Mandarins

John Gilmore at Minnesota Conservatives is demanding the U of M release the video of Governor Dayton’s speech to the Humphrey Institute, which we discussed earlier this week.

Here’s Gilmore’s email to the U of M, which explains it better than I could:

Email to U of M General Counsel

If, as Gilmore notes, the U really did claim it was “too expensive” to videotape the Governor, and that local TV stations taped the event but are sitting on it (why?) – well, what’s the U protecting?

  1. What’s so hard to understand about political collusion between government and media, Mr. Gilmore? Media and government both have their thumbs on the scales of truth. It’s supposed to be a ‘given,’ John.

  2. A question for Learned Foot – is there a Minnesota equivalent of FOIA through which the U can be REQUIRED to produce this?
