Rachel DiCarlo has an excellent piece about Maryland governor Bob Ehrlich's feud with the Baltimore Sun. Piqued at stories in the Sun, the Ehrlich administration has banned all state officials in the executive branch from speaking with two Sun writers. Read the entire piece to get the particulars.
Ehrlich's actions may not be the most arrogant and offensive dictums ever issued by a politician, but I can't come up with anything worse off the top of my head. Being a governor and complaining about bad press is like being a moviestar and complaining about autograph seekers: If you can't handle it like a grownup, you're in the wrong line of work.
