The conservative Drudge Report should be the go-to news site for explaining the rationale underlying the new president's "gag order" on several government agencies. There must be a leadership and management reason. And even Trumpism loyalists are curious about this latest initiative.
As TechCrunch tells us, government agencies ranging from the Environmental Protection Agency to Transportation, have been banned from all external communications. That doesn't mean just not tweeting. The "gag order" also includes press releases, delivering speeches and so on.
Could it be that the new president needs to get through the first 100 days before he decides his policies regarding how government agencies communicate? For example, he may determine that they shouldn't contract with outside public relations and marketing firms. That could be perceived by him as a waste of taxpayer money.
Meanwhile, there exists no transparency about what is going on in those agencies.
Fox News and the Daily Caller can join the Drudge Report in letting us know why this kind of step had been taken.
