Utah Governor ‘Honored’ With Blackhole Award

The national Society of Professional Journalists plans to ‘honor’ Utah’s Gov. Gary Herbert with the first-ever Black Hole award for a restrictive new open records law. From the article: “David Cuillier, SPJ’s Freedom of Information Committee chief and a journalism professor at the University of Arizona, said he’ll try to present the award to Herbert on Wednesday. The award, Cuillier said, is part of Sunshine Week, an annual initiative begun in 2002 to promote greater transparency in government. Nominations were gathered from around the country, but Cuillier said ‘there was no question’ the award should go to Herbert as the chief executive of the state.”
