KSTP Minneapolis last week devoted the great block of its Wednesday evening news to a live interview with Minnesota's controversial and bombastic governor, former wrestler and current XFL announcer Jesse Ventura. While the station planned for a serious discussion of state budget issues, it agreed to let Ventura comment on highlights from the Timberwolves game he'd just attended.

Also last week, Ventura was reportedly rethinking a policy that requires reporters to wear a badge that includes a prominent photo of him and the reporters' designation "Official Jackal."
