The Rockford Register-Star’s Aaron Chambers sits down with the governor’s commerce director, Jack Lavin.
The interview is transcribed online, Q&A style, a practice that has been used by more and more of this state’s newspapers in the past year or so. It began when House Speaker Madigan decreed last year that he would only allow himself to be interviewed if it was reprinted verbatum, and then everyone else asked for the same treatment.
Imagine that. Mike Madigan, of all people, helping to reshape news coverage for the better. Kinda weirds me out.
