MTN: Bullock Closes “Townhall” to Press
At first, I was shocked to see a headline that Gov. Steve Bullock (D-MT) was holding a townhall meeting. You see, Gov. Bullock never holds townhall meetings or appears on local call-in radio shows. He typically hides out on the 2nd floor, speaks at scripted events and press conferences, and then jets off to Iowa or New Hampshire.
So that's why I was surprised to see this story from KBZK-TV. Then I read this from the story:
The governor arrived at the meeting with his own private film crew. Everyone who attended the meeting had to sign a non-disclosure agreement, meaning they could not discuss what was said at this meeting.
Non-disclosure agreements...closed to the press...that's a man of the people right there!
Good find by John Emeigh with KXLF-TV in Butte for breaking the story. *Update: NBC Montana also has a story- click here for their coverage.
