In the comments, Jay corrected her thinking by pointing out that he simply filled out the application. McBride responded with this:
I don't agree with you much, but I think you're good at what you do and the manner in which you do it.
I didn't realize that you signed up, as opposed to them recruiting you. I wonder if they allow anyone to do that or if they narrow down the applicants. Interesting.....
This does make it seem that McBride is now considering using this information as either a way back into the limelight with the Journal Sentinel, or as a way to set herself up as the martyr of MSJ's supposed liberal bias. Either way, Whallah will be diligent in its continuing mission of monitoring her nefarious schemes.
