You Too Can Be A Right Wing Propagandist!

In October of this year, Journal Broadcasting decided to invest some of its lucre into developing a website which fed off of Charlie Sykes' "success." They call the sight "Right Wisconsin."

What it is is just another right site that aggregates other people's work and promotes it as one stop echo chamber. Sort of like the Drudge Report but with a more localized scope.

The sources they use in their aggregation are laughable at best. They cite people like Brian Sikma of Wisconsin Reporter; Kevin Binversie - the Koch Brothers cabana boy wannabe; MacIver Institute for the Criminally Insane; Breitbart; James Wigderson; Aaron Rodriguez and other such fallacious fascists.

Obviously, they're not looking for any sense of credibility in this venture.

Even more hilarious is the fact that they hired Brian Fraley to be the managing editor of this site. Fraley is the same guy that used to work for MacIver, and before that, he worked for ALEC. Fraley is the kind of guy who thinks there should be no accountability in elections and that anti-gay slurs is a high form of comedy. One of Fraley's greatest claims to fame is the fact that he was part of the original caucus scandal and was the person who taught Kelly Rindfleisch all she knows about corrupt politicking:


OK, so now we know that neither credibility nor integrity is something they're worrying about here.

After following the site for several weeks, I have ascertained that it serves two main purposes.

The secondary reason they created this site is an effort to control the message. It will be a great resource for right wingers that are afraid of the real world and only want information that supports and reinforces their own skewed sense of reality. You know the type. The ones that think American for Preposterousness is really a grass roots movement or that President Barack Obama is a communist, socialist, Marxist, socialist, Nazi, space alien, baby-eating Kenyan.

The primary reason for this site is the same one that any conservative organization does anything - to make money.

They are already selling ad space on their site and on their email blasts. And after the new year, they're going to go behind a pay wall.

I have to admit, that does make sense. As the saying goes, a fool and his money are soon parted, and there aren't any bigger fools than the people that buy into this sort of claptrap. I'm sure the sheeples will be throwing their money at this and then blaming Democrats when they're broke.

In fact, Journal Broadcasting is now advertising to hire an assistant to Fraley. Why he would need one is beyond me. What he does is not difficult, even for someone like him. Unless they are planning on having Fraley busy colluding with campaigns and WISGOP, but even then, that's something that Sykes and Journal Broadcasting have been doing for years.

Besides the fact that we know that this operation has nothing to do with credibility, integrity or the truth and everything to do with greed, there are three other things to take away from this though.

One is, as Steve Hanson pointed out months ago, this utterly destroys the myth that the media is liberal in any stretch of the imagination.

Secondly, as the Brawler points out, their little echo chamber is rather ineffective and makes for great comedy comes up and kicks them in the crotch, like it did in November.

Thirdly, it will be a target rich zone for blogger fodder. They're already giving us an overabundance of foolishness to choose from. I only expect it to get even more histrionic and hysterical as they realize that the people are coming to take their cities, counties and state back.

  3. I'm talking about when you were suspended without pay. I bet that little pay loss is more than the pittance you now pay for insurance/pension

    1. It's nice you are able to find a few minutes between eating children's souls to come and harass us.

    2. Yup. Because I was reading JSOnline. Still nothing like what Walker and company did. And I bet they're paying a much, much higher price. I can't wait for the next round!

    3. 11:26 - so nasty but typical Walkerish - to be expected. I sense some anger in 11:26. Getting a little hit under the white starched collar?

  4. Wiish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one fills up first. I'm going to love your meltdown when nothing happens to the governor over this John Doe witch hunt. You should stock up on antidepressants because your going to need them. Just make sure they are generic as they are cheaper seeing you have a few dollars less each month.

    1. Yup, right. Y'all been saying nothing's going to happen for years, yet we have six convictions already and a few more stool pigeons singing like songbirds.

      And the legal defense, er, cooperation fund was for the helluvit, right? Yup, things are going to be fun when Archer, Nardelli and the rest are done singing.

      Y'all are going to be crapping bricks like you did in November when you were sure Romney and TOMMY!! were going to win.

    2. Only true right-wing scum would revel in people getting a reduction on their paychecks. You're an asshole.

    3. And why post as annoymous? aren't you brave enough to harass capper as your true identity? or do you not have the backbone? OOPS I forgot, conservatives are born spineless.

  5. I personally never said Romney or Thompson would win. They were terrible candidates much like the WISDEMS put in several of the state assembly races. Over two years and nothing against the governor. The only thing that will happen is WISDEMS will be dining on a lot of crow. Looking forward to the great work the state legislature will be doing this year. Better get your empty pickle buckets ready, it's going to be a great year.

    1. LOL! Like the last two years have been? Remember, it took them four years to get Blago, and his was much less involved than Walker's scandal. It's sad you can't deal with it yet, but it will make your head popping when you see Walker doing the perp walk all the more satisfying.

    2. Im curious as to who these "terrible candidates" that the wis dems ran are??

  6. Wait a minute, Crapper. You are a liar. You didn't get. Investigated for reading JSOnline using taxpayer resources, you got caught using taxpayer resources on your hate filled blogs. I didn't notice what you had said earlier until now. Liar. List. Pants on fire.

    1. Wrong again, my illiterate friend. The report and the article most emphatically stressed I was not blogging. That's why Walker and company are being investigated, charged and convicted and I'm not. It must suck being you.

  7. Ahhh, how entertaining to see a right wing, spineless slack-jawed, mouth-breather come on here to TRY and distort the facts.

    Here's a thought Anony-mouse. How about making a new years resolution to grow a spine, and think for yourself for a change. Freedom is a great thing.

  8. But...but...thinking for themselves!?!? They have Fox News and Charlie Sykes to do that for them.

  9. I wonder if Charlie Sykes still beats his wives? I had a fascinating conversation with a lawyer on the subject...

  10. So ANON @rightwing.org- you seem to get off on pushing cuts to benefits down public workers throats. And now in your next rant you seem to think your Republicon friends are going to ram through more extreme legislation that from looking at their first ram rod session will be another failure. Walker is nothing but a front man. It's not about jobs. It's about everything but jobs. Tell me Anon. How did that jobs session work out for Walker. Check out today's JS on his boondoggle jobs agency. Will we hear about this from SORRY CHARLIE? Nope - he's blind to what makes him money.
