Ohio journalists are questioning a move by the City of Cleveland that they say appeared to try to dictate news coverage. The City released specific rules for media outlets to follow during Wednesday’s State of the City address. The city later revised the requirements.

At major events like the State of the City, it is common for media to have specific requirements about where they can park and broadcast live.

Here are your morning headlines for Thursday, Feb. 1:

Today is the first official day of Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson's fourth term. 

If there was a theme to the ceremony, it seemed to be this: 'Being mayor is not easy.'

From the introduction by Judge Patricia Blackmon: "Then I saw him again and he said, 'I'm running for mayor,' and I said, 'Frank, don't do it ...'"

...to a musical number sung by a city police sergeant.
