I didn’t get an opportunity to write on this when it came out, but, it was funny and sick, nonetheless.
For those who don’t know, Wisconsin’s governor, Scott Walker, bore the brunt of a full out attack by the LSM. Way back when he got elected, a bunch of Dem investigators tried to invent some criminal charges towards Repubs because of the butthurt they had in losing the Governor election.

There simply wasn’t any evidence to warrant any charges …. to anyone. All of this was established and well-known history, but, the LSM pretending the accusations were new and true.
And, now there’s this ….
“Wisconsin governor wasn’t a target of probe, prosecutor’s attorney says.” The story was buried at the bottom of page A8 on Friday’s paper. A similar article by Monica Davey in the New York Times was buried in Friday’s paper on page A15.
But as my colleague Tim Graham noted last Friday, on June 20 both the Times and the Post hyped the notion that Walker, a likely 2016 Republican presidential aspirant, had engaged in a “criminal scheme” by coordinating with outside groups to oppose an effort to oust him from office. Indeed, the headline for Gold’s June 20 story, co-written with colleague Tom Hamburger, was freighted with an allegation of wrongdoing: “Prosecutors: Wis. governor involved in illicit scheme.”

Ahh, American journalism at it’s finest!
