The JS Draws the Line on the Green Team

In case you're wondering where the line was drawn, it's on page 2 of the Metro section, eight paragraphs down.

Read carefully, otherwise you might miss it.

As Xoff pointed out the other day, Congressman Green's latest campaign ad says the following: "The Journal Sentinel reports Doyle rigged the State Elections Board vote to try and steal the election."

Here's what the JS had to say about that this morning:

----------------

The Journal Sentinel article Green's ad cites as evidence that Doyle "rigged" an Elections Board vote was an editorial, not a news story, and it never made that accusation. The editorial faulted the Elections Board, Doyle's campaign and the Legislature for contacts a Doyle campaign lawyer made with Democratic appointees on the Elections Board.

----------------

By the end of the article the JS was back to form, though, citing two UWM professors, one who liked Green's ad and another who didn't like a part of an anti-Green ad produced by the Greater Wisconsin Committee.

I'm sure displaying a dash of integrity in its gubernatorial election coverage was fun while it lasted for the JS news staff.

UPDATE: The JS editorial board takes issue with Green's ad today: "Green Ad Steps Over the Line."
