From the department of non-corrections
Milwaukee Magazine editor Bruce Murphy acts as his own ombudsman and responds to a demand for a retraction from Lisa Kaiser of the Crazy Shepherd:
–Lisa Kaiser, assistant editor at the Shepherd Express, wrote to demand a retraction and apology for the item in my last column suggesting she wrote a piece of fake news. I do agree that her story was well-done factually, insofar as it told us about a little-known group called the Democrats for Education Reform, which is lobbying for the mayoral takeover of Milwaukee Public Schools. But the story then took a leap from these facts to claim this group was “a driving force behind the mayoral takeover” and that it would lead to the privatizing of MPS. That struck me as unproven nonsense. Still does.
