In 2003, then-Gov. Jeb Bush punished reporters from the Tallahassee bureau of the Palm Beach Post by canceling their invitation to his year-end interview session. His staff cited the “unprofessional behavior” while dealing with some of Bush’s officials, but the paper suspected it was in retaliation for critical reporting on Bush’s pet school vouchers program.

Matt Galka‘s secret to success? “Be the same person on TV that you could talk to at a bar,” he says. The 27-year-old “multimedia journalist” started with Tallahassee’s local CBS affiliate, WCTV, in 2011. He’s now with Capitol News Service, helmed by broadcast veteran Mike Vasilinda, reporting “on the Florida Legislature and politics for more than […]

What a week. First, Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi announced Florida is suing the Obama administration over the Medicaid expansion issue. Then, we witnessed some remarkable political gamesmanship when the House adjourned three days early. The words “insurmountable differences” on the budget and Medicaid expansion accompanied the banging gavel in the House […]
