DAILY WISCONSIN

State Journal

A little help from his friends

On March 24, two days after Dane County Judge Josann Reynolds, (Branch two), ordered Scott Walker to call two special elections, and one day after Republicans vowed to enact legislation blocking the judicial order, the Wisconsin State Journal ran a banner, 3/4-inch headline reading “State GOP seeks swift action” in its print edition.

This March 24 headline misleads readers with the undefined “seeks swift action,” omitting the fact state Republicans scrambled to continue to block elections, (as the news piece reports).
