About that interview with the governor…
On Friday’s show, we had an interview with Gov. Butch Otter. I had a few people ask me why we didn’t ask the governor about his remarks on Judge Winmill, minimum wage or Add the Words.
There are a few reasons. First, we taped the discussion with him on Wednesday before Dan Popkey’s blog post on the Winmill remarks came out. (That’s the only big drawback of a weekly in-depth politics show — If you do an interview early in the week, things can change by the time the show airs.)
But even if we had known about it, we might not have asked. When you have a one-on-one with the governor and only 25 minutes in which to talk, you’re not going to get to everything.
We had a list of topics we wanted to cover (including wages and the role it plays in economic development) and got to only half of them. I would have loved to talk to Otter for longer, but we’ll have to book another interview.
And as always, if you missed the show, you can catch it online at idahoptv.org/idreports.

Please. Let’s see fewer softballs, more hard-hitting questions. Thanks.
I wish you would have asked the type of hard (and repeated) questions you asked Senator Werk. Look at the two segments.
There are real questions. It is up to the press to ask them.
When do we get to the issue of faith healing deaths of children in Idaho?
