Help Wanted: Journalistic Babysitter

From Heartland Hollar:
We don't expect the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to provide a correction because of course to do so would be such a slippery slope that would amount to doubling their costs and creating an entire new paper to keep up with McIlheran. But we have a better idea (again), why don't they just fire the guy.

He is not only factually wrong more often than he is "right on," his "thoughts" have such a clearly narrow and shrinking appeal he makes bad business sense for a paper that is losing money. Any other worker who made this many mistakes would be shown the door.

What makes McIlheran so privileged, so entitled?

The least they could do is offer some "competition" on their own pages with an opposing (and accurate) view. Or they could simply provide the journalistic babysitting that McIlheran so obviously needs.
Read the whole post to see what Preview Paddy got wrong this time.

  1. The sad thing is that they could hire a thoughtful, accurate conservative voice and still provide competition for Preview Paddy's screeds.
