New from Ohio Gov. DeWine:

“Due to the limited time available and the serious nature of this announcement, we will be limiting questions to those directly related to the announcement. Reporters are asked to submit questions in advance of the question and answer session”
Translated: the Governor wants to control the kinds of questions reporters can ask about at a *remote* video conference and also have a chance to read them over beforehand.
DeWine, in my personal opinion, is usually pretty decent to the press. But this is weak.
For those less familiar with media dogma, ethical journalism is a hard no on every supplying questions in advance of Q&A. Also, all questions are fair game - public figures don't get to pick what they're asked.

This was in an AP (our gold standard) story just the other day.

Ohio Supreme Court today dismissed a lawsuit alleging Ohio's vaccine lottery/distribution were, among other things, a violation of the Nuremberg Code.

Suit was dismissed on esoteric legal grounds without ever addressing the lie that vaccinated people are biological weapons ImageImage
If you're unaware, the Nuremberg Code developed after the Holocaust when human experiments were conducted on unconsenting Jews in concentration camps. It really is a sick claim…
The court just didn't even bother touching this one, which besides being nonsensical health information, was a pretty aggressive way to talk to Supreme Court justices when you're asking them to do something

Happy almost midnight. This bill is now under debate in the House and seems (?) on track for a vote…
Caveat: this bill has been amended since I wrote this story, there have been negotiations for a while on other amendments, and we're talking about more amendments. So consider details fluid.
Bill passes 52-43

Chair of Ohio House Health Committee to @ajplus.

Reporter asked about his request to anti-vaccine group to help him "stop this vaccine shit."

"Until we have the proper studies, and understand what we're putting in our body, we've got to slow it down."
He said in April to Health Freedom Ohio members: “We’re gonna face a couple bills that this group does not like. And I have to have energy to stop this vaccine shit that’s coming.”…
Nothing like the why-are-you-asking-me-this-not-that defense. He ends the interview and walks off shortly thereafter

This is all pandemic related protesting…
Days ago an ODH official, who sometimes appears before the Liquor Commission to testify against bars violating covid rules, had her home shot at.

Police say motive is unknown.…
