Walker’s media echo chamber

That’s how this blog was labeled by another writer.

Unfortunately, Walker’s media echo chamber has had some success in spinning bizarre claims that Prosser was either provoked…

Well, I must admit it’s flattering to think I’ve “had some success.”

Honestly, any blogger who would identify himself as “a pioneering political blogger” is probably not on my list of potential beer dates.

That dude can spin. He used One Wisconsin Now as a legitimate source!


  1. Randy in Richmond says:

    You know things are ‘serious’ when one has to quote school board members about a court issue while not quoting another Judge that was actually present. So much spin in that article one could get dizzy just glancing at it.

  2. The sad thing is that there are not more women who put their names to such an important piece. Its a sham that he has not recused himself, but as we see by the Vanderleest campaign power the need and lust for power trumps.

    Who was the judge who was actually present he missed the quote for?

  3. I’ve always suspected that some folks confuse the views they hear espoused at The Nation with the views that are held by much of the actual nation. I used to think it was limited to Katrina vanden Heuvel, but clearly Nichols has caught the bug.

    I wonder why he chose to link you in a piece on women’s atttitude toward the Prosser/Bradley affair? I guess identity politics is alive and well.

  4. Randy in Richmond says:

    Bradley then said she had been choked, according to the source. Another justice – the source wouldn’t say who – responded, “You were not choked.”

    The judge’s name is not given.


  5. The judge’s name is NOT given and the fact that no judge has put their name on it speaks volumes. Especially when it comes from the hack christian Schneiders fantasy world.

    So at this moment the only on the record judge says that prosser was the one doing the choking.

    But hey im sure vanderleest is innocent also…maybe he can hire WPRI to do their pr work also.

  6. Jeff, Jeff, Jeff. You know, you can argue your point without “the hack” being a part of your text. Your attitude continues to discount your effort almost as much as that guy from The Nation.

    Which, by the way, I’d honestly never heard of until the link came in. A bit of a confession that I don’t get out much, huh? Really, though, I don’t seek out to read other people’s work. My opinion gets me in enough trouble already. 🙂

  7. Randy in Richmond says:

    Jeff, which Judge was it that gave Bradley’s account of what happened ? And there’s a considerable difference between not given and not provided.

  8. Cindy you seriously have never heard of the nation? Have you heard of John Nichols at least? if you dont read all different sides of an issue how do you come up with your opinion?

    As for Hack it seems to fit Schneider quite nicely. Prosser in anger attacks another judge who happens to be a woman and is in a serious spot of trouble. There is no excusing what he did and really needs to be if not arrested at the very least resign his position. Then in rides Christian Schneider with an utterly unbelievable story explaining ” the other side”‘ just as Prosser needed it.

    He put what little bit of reputation he had left on the line, fell on his sword so to say to help keep Prosser in power.

    Then the story was just ridiculous enough for the right wing blogs to all jump on the bandwagon and have their readers start parroting the ridiculousness. Chicken little eventually found out that it was just a nut that fell, and so will the people of WI.

  9. Jeff, you said:

    “Prosser in anger attacks another judge…”

    You’re being an ass. There’s no proof Prosser attacked anyone. You are just hacking a bit yourself, aren’t you?

    I think you are out of here for a while. It’s getting stupidly old, this attitude of yours.
