Former WTMJ-AM Radio Voice Indeed Lands With New GOP Majority In Madison

I had assumed John Jagler had left 620 WTMJ some weeks ago to take a political position, and Dan Bice confirms it. 

The relationship hardly needs a fresh connection, but Jagler does provide his Senate Majority Leader boss and Republicans in the legislature simple access to TMJ's stable of right-wing talkers, and vice-versa.

Btw - Belling reported and discussed this at the time.

Nice to see the MJS finally figure it out.

Jagler is hardly a republican himself. Belling also discussed (weeks ago) Jagler as being a liberal and questioned why Fitzgerald would select him for this position and to be the mouthpiece for the republicans in Madison.

"Stable of right wing talkers"?

Perhaps more precisely: "Augean stable of right wing...."

The fifth Labour of Heracles was, of course, to clean the Augean stables, famously redolent of a 30 years' accretion of merde.

more likely, "unstable of right wing talkers."

It's like the WisGOPs are constantly running a big inside joke on the dimwits who follow them. It's like they're giving stage asides of "Can't you see that daytime WTMJ programming is nothing more than our paid-for propaganda?" "Can't you see how lobbyist-controlled and corrupt we are?"

And the losers who listen to that station still don't see the connection. No wonder Milwaukee's in such decline if the average Joe in that town can't figure that one out.
