No Talk Radio for Chafee

Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee (I) will not appear on talk radio and intends to ban state employees from spending their state work time talking on talk radio, the Providence Journal reports.

A spokesman said the new policy emanates from a belief that talk radio is essentially "ratings-driven, for-profit programming," and "we don't think it is appropriate to use taxpayer resources" in the form of state employee work time to "support for-profit, ratings-driven programming."
