The compromise decision - - Feingold and Walker - - reflects the post-merger split personality of the paper, with the nod to Walker speaking to the conservative, pro-business orientation of newsroom decision-makers reflecting the long-gone Milwaukee Sentinel.
The MMAC will be happy. Walker is their guy.
I'm happy for Feingold, who is clearly the superior candidate. The paper would have totally forfeited its credibility if it tried to argue that Johnson is better Senator material.
Rewarding that with a proposed promotion is wrong.
