I spent part of my morning today over at the WTMJ-AM studios as a guest on the Week in Review on Charlie Sykes’ program today. Collin Roth of RightWisconsin was kind enough to snap a few photos: I forgot to ask if they had extra Skyline Chili. We discussed the issue of repealing the minimum […]

Barring the unforeseen, I will be on Charlie Sykes’ program on WTMJ-AM on Friday for the Week in Review segment after 11:00 AM. I’m sure we’ll be discussing the Iowa Caucus results, Trump’s meltdown, and a few other fun items. Either tune in or listen to the podcast after it’s posted.   Print this entry

With the announcement by Congressman Reid Ribble that he is not running for re-election, the race for the Republican nomination in that district promises to have a full slate of contestants. As I explain today at RightWisconsin, in that crowded field there is a way for a candidate to stand out – call for public […]

So what do we know? We know that Wisconsin Jobs Now! was running a probably illegal get-out-the-vote effort for State Rep. Sandy Pasch (D-Whitefish Bay), using food and raffle prizes as inducements to vote. We know that Wisconsin Jobs Now! and Citizen Action share the same phone number and the same address, and that the […]

The MacIver Institute’s Brian Fraley will be on WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee for the 5:00 PM and 6:00 PM news to do a pre-debate analysis, and at 10:00 PM to do a post-debate analysis, for tonight’s gubernatorial debate between Scott Walker and Tom Barrett. Scot Ross from One Wisconsin Now, the self-decribed partisan organization with the […]

WTMJ-TV news in Milwaukee aired a report (video) on the Barrett campaign’s use of an Ozzy Osbourne video in their press release on Friday. MILWAUKEE – Mayor Tom Barrett’s gubernatorial campaign claims they really wanted to send reporters a YouTube ad slamming Republican opponent Scott Walker. Instead, their e-mailed press release web link led to […]

Over at the MacIver site yesterday, a column on the latest CBO report and Congressman Paul Ryan’s reaction. If Ryan sounds like a herald bringing news to Pharaoh of another plague upon Egypt, he has good cause. According to the CBO, public debt will be larger than the entire U.S. economy by 2023. The CBO’s […]

How irresponsible was WTMJ’s “I-Team” reporting on the O’Donnell Park parking structure accident? Pretty irresponsible. While Aaron Diamant was waving around papers claiming were “proof” of something nefarious, the truth is the maintenance issues Diamant described were already repaired by the Parks Department, and none of them had anything to do with the accident in […]

Not that I’m a big defender of Vice President Joe Biden, but this report by WTMJ is absolutely ridiculous. Vice President Biden Serves Kopps Custard, Calls it Ice Cream GLENDALE – Yes, that was the Vice President serving custard at Kopps in Glendale today. Vice President Joe Biden was in town for a fundraiser for […]

Candidate for governor Mark Neumann will answer whether he would ever consider running as an independent on Charlie Sykes’ program on WTMJ-AM Thursday morning. On Wednesday morning WISN-AM’s Jay Weber discussed the controversy regarding some phone calls made by Mark Neumann’s campaign for governor to delegates to the upcoming Republican state convention. The calls were […]
