With Capitol demonstrations, Wisconsin State Journal takes sides, belittles state workers - Isthmus | The Daily Page This is a rant by a guy in a Madison local media, and his problem is with how Madison's sole major newspaper, The Wisconsin State Journal, has taken it's editorial stance in the direction of backing Gov. Walker. Never in a million years did I think the Madison, WI media would begin to back a Rep Governor in a heated battle with left wing unions. Sorry lefties. But when the local news turns and picks a side, thats usually a sign that they are alligning themselves with the eventual winner in order to sell more papers. If the Wisky State Journal is now backing Walker, then this fight is nearly a done deal. Get used to working outside the comfy confines of a union, because if the Madison media is even turning against it, then it's a fad whose best times have passed.
