Walker In 25-Year Loop Of Managed News

Delete, deny, discard.

Anyone else see a straight line from this account of why Scott Walker lost the 1988 Marquette student newspaper's endorsement for student body president - -

The column... expressed disappointment in Walker’s campaign workers reportedly throwing away issues of the Tribune after the endorsement was initially made.
- - to this week's developments:
Bad enough that Scott Walker tried to slip away from his 250,000 new jobs promise, but how about this effort by his press secretary to get a Wisconsin TV station to delete the story from its news feed?
Walker's press secretary, Tom Evenson, called Newswatch 12 on Tuesday, and asked if we could be persuaded to take Monday's story off our website.
Anyone else still believe in his commitment to living [sic] transparency?

I think the quote from Walker was "I've lived it." [transparency]

As in past tense. As in over and done with that.

More weasel words from the Weasler-in-Chief.
