I miss Spivak
The MJS team of Spivak & Bice team broke up. Dan Bice kept on going and today his column will make you wish Carey had remained on the team. For starters, Bruce Murphy of Milwaukee Magazine took the JS to task for lousy reporting (not reporting) on the Ziegler conflicts scandal. Is JS worried that fellow Journal Communications employee Charlie Sykes will attack JS if they do what most other papers have done in reporting on conservative Judge Ziegler's conflicts? (Wouldn't want to ruffle WMC's feathers, would they?) Is it, as Murphy suggests, the refusal of JS to acknowledge that other journalists put them to shame?
Whatever the explanation, Bice takes aim at a researcher who supposedly had been fired by a previous employer. Where does this "hot news" come from? WMC perhaps?
And, while writing a vicious attack piece on Linda Clifford, Bice still does not report on the Ziegler conflicts while using loaded and inaccurate charges against Clifford such as "dumpster diving" and "dredging muck." Whoa Nelly! If Dan has some evidence he should share it, but if this is an indication that he will be Milwaukee's Rush Limbaugh, bring back Carey Spivak!
