So Idaho Public Television
wanted to host a debate with the eight Republicans running for U.S. Senate.
But, Lt. Gov. Jim Risch said, "Nah." He liked the KTVB debate format better.
So they went to tape the show at Northwest Nazarene University. And Jim Gilchriest, the KTVB news director, told the school to keep out the other newsies
who might attend.
With us so far? Hokay, so, the newsies cried foul
. The debate
(yawn) went on. And Gilchriest's boss sent out a memo
that suggested, cordially, that the newsies ought to go pound sand.
Full memo, translated, after the jump.
