Three days after issuing a guest opinion ripping several Idaho columnists, Gov. Butch Otter was schooled Monday.
By the editorial board of the University of Idaho Argonaut.
The campus paper criticized Otter for threatening to zero out funding for Idaho Public Television — in what he now calls a tactic designed to force Public Television to produce a business plan.
"Otter and the entire state government have a very serious task in front of them," the Argonaut says in its editorial. "Let’s see some cooperation, not mindless bluffing."
