WisconsinReporter launched in January 2011 as a division of StateHouseNews. It is a nonpartisan organization, dedicated to playing the watchdog role on state government, while localizing stories to certain districts: La Crosse, Kenosha, Eau Claire, Wausau, Stevens Point, Chippewa, and Beloit.Sounds like a legitimate news organization. Until you actually, you know, encounter them in the real world. Then they look like this exchange with Cognitive Dissidence blogger Jeff Simpson:
StateHouse News Online began in June 2010 and is a product of the Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting non-partisan, new media journalism.
This tune's for you, Wisconsin Reporter! We can see you for what you are!
