What a ridiculous assertion!
The Journal Sentinel, liberal? Why, that’s preposterous! Let’s take a look at the Crossroads section in today’s Sunday edition.
In the letters to the editor section, cleverly entitled, “Sunday Symposium,” the powers that be chose not one, but TWO letters criticizing state Senator Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) for the death of a 13-month old foster child, Christopher Thomas.
The baby boy was choked to death by his foster mother, the boy’s aunt. Darling said the case made her “heartsick,” and called for a sate investigation. Darling has been a champion of the child welfare/child safety issue longer than the Journal Sentinel has been the Journal Sentinel, and yet the editors thought it appropriate to print two letters ripping her, not the aunt for the death of this innocent infant.
Any letter or editorial commending her for calling for an investigation? Are you kidding? Are you, excuse me, nuts?
Any letter or editorial chastising black elected officials for their silence on this or any other chaotic episode in the central city? I repeat my earlier questions.
There’s also a piece on the incredibly unpopular notion of commuter rail. Any rebuttal column? At the risk of being redundant, are you kidding me? Are you, excuse me, out of your mind?
The best, though, is an opinion piece on how to raise state revenue co-written by three lefties that calls for no less than…..
A DOZEN TAX INCREASES!
One would think such a radical op-ed item would warrant a column with a differing view. After all, aren’t the editors trained in the fairness of journalism? Don’t they go to bed invoking God (that they won’t do in print) imploring Him for the rebirth of the Fairness Doctrine?
Cue the broken record. Are you kidding me? Are you one french fry short of a Happy Meal?
Praise the Lord, I am so deliriously happy the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is not a liberal publication. If they were, my goodness gracious, their circulation would drop, and those ever so smart editors would never allow that to happen.
