Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has posted a video criticizing the Courier Journal after the newspaper announced this week that it’s partnering with the independent media nonprofit ProPublica on a year-long investigative project.
The Courier Journal says the project with ProPublica will examine an agency of Kentucky state government, continuing what the newspaper describes as its 150-year tradition "of protecting taxpayers, safeguarding the environment and holding public officials and government agencies accountable."
In a 3-minute video, Governor Bevin ripped into the investigative team.
“The Courier Journal, which pretends that it’s an actual news organization or a publication, is so remarkably biased they are now full in bed with this particular organization ProPublica.”
