Lieber: TDCJ, DPS linked by opacity policies

At the Dallas News, columnist David Lieber documented the ouster of former TDCJ flak Michelle Lyons, a development discussed on Grits back in February.

Lieber portrayed the episode as part of a pattern across justice agencies, having "recently told the story of how the Texas Department of Public Safety’s public information department isn’t always forthcoming." Similarly, he wrote, "Lyons says she got crosswise with TDCJ administrators because they decided she was too open with the news media, and, by extension, the general public. They wanted to clamp down on public information, too, she says."
