How (and why) WisconsinEye shields legislators from their own actions

….If you were wondering why you almost never see footage of the legislature in action in political commercials, now you know why. It’s an absolutely ridiculous set of prohibitions designed to protect the legislators from themselves.

I obviously have no love for Planned Parenthood. But if they want to show footage of Ellis breaking his gavel calling the Democrats out of order, they should have the right to do so. And if Americans for Prosperity or Wisconsin Right to Life wants to show footage of Democrats behaving badly, they should have the right to do so….
