WISN-AM Stands By Belling

Station management gives talker Mark Belling a pass for bringing the Jewish religion of Marriott hotel opponents into the debate. The Journal Sentinel's media critic weighed in today with reporting.

Some history here.

My reaction is a) no surprise, b) we've all learned a lot about talk radio's practice and 'values,' and c) thanks to WISN for another reason to avoid the station and its advertisers.

Where was your post about Sly and the Lt. Gov.? Did I miss it?

Sly is not carried in our market, but I posted Tim Cuprisin's column which mentioned it.

I note that Sly made an apology, which was certainly appropriate, and that Belling did not.
