As Vermont Democratic gubernatorial nominee Christine Hallquist appeared as a guest on MSNBC Live with Ali Velshi, the MSNBC host went along with his liberal guest's premise that liberal policies should not be labeled as "progressive" as the liberal host referred to his Canadian roots and suggested that liberalism just be called "normal."

NYT: Scary ‘Extreme Makeover’ in Wisconsin From Walker's Union Reforms
July 12th, 2018 8:32 PM
The New York Times will never forgive conservative Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker for taming his state's public unions and then surviving the vengeance of a union-funded recall election.

PolitiFact Whacks Scott Walker: Facts Correct, But You're 'Half True'
April 19th, 2018 5:07 PM
One of the most annoying tendencies of "Fact Checkers" is to claim that (a) the facts at issue are true and (b) it's still wrong somehow. Take PolitiFact Wisconsin's Tom Kertscher judging Republican Gov. Scott Walker as "Half True" while he's factually correct. He was half-false by claiming credit, when his reforms are a "contributing factor." But…
AP's Scott Walker-Obsessed Bauer Blows Two Easy 'Fact Checks'
January 26th, 2018 4:50 PM
Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker gave his annual State of the State speech Wednesday.

Bitter AP: Scott Walker 'Effectively Ended Collective Bargaining'
November 10th, 2017 2:12 PM
On Monday, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker announced that he will seek a third term as Badger State Chief Executive next year. At the Associated Press, Scott Bauer, still bitter over Walker's successful attempt to rein in the power of the state's public-sector unions in 2011, falsely insisted, as he has for over 6-1/2 years, that Walker's Act 10 legislation "effectively ended…
AP Ignores Falling Obama-Era Union Rolls, Takes Aim at Wisconsin
January 30th, 2017 2:02 PM
You would think that the establishment press and the rest of the opposition to Donald Trump's administration might be able to capitalize substantively (shrieking fundraising letters don't count as "substance") on Kellyanne Conway's shaky reference to "alternative facts" about a week ago. (She should have said, "I have different, more defensible estimates than…
NY Times Op-Ed Howler: 'The Path to Prosperity Is Blue'
August 10th, 2016 4:44 PM
In a New York Times op-ed with so many holes it wouldn't hold up as swiss cheese, two political science profs, Jacob S. Hacker and Paul Pierson, set out to reassure the leftist elites that "The Path to Prosperity Is Blue." This would be pretty funny if it weren't for the fact that many of the Old Gray Lady's smug readers will actually buy this nonsense. The pair's…

AP's Scott Bauer Has a New Obsession: Negatively Describing Ted Cruz
January 5th, 2016 5:31 PM
At the Associated Press, Wisconsin-based reporter Scott Bauer, who has spent the better part of the past five years describing Badger State Governor Scott Walker as "polarizing," has been given the opportunity to get involved with 2016 presidential campaign coverage.

Press Defines 'Joke' As Anything That Insults, Threatens a Republican
November 11th, 2015 11:39 PM
Just as a reality check, I asked a friend today what his reaction would be if I said with a sincere-sounding voice that he makes me want to strangle him. He said, "Almost sounds like a threat." I said, "No, it was supposed to be a joke." He said, "No it's not."
I also asked another person what her reaction would be if I earnestly called her "demented.…
