Coming on the wake of Jimmy Wigderson getting let go at the Waukesha Freeman, thanks to "economic reasons*", (*economic reasons, being no one buys the paper to read his crap),now the latest organization to hire Jim, is cleaning house.
The poorly named Franklin Center for Government and public integrity, realized that the people who were writing for them, had no integrity and thus were forced to clean up their crew.
They finally realized that hiring Jimmy Wigderson to be their "education reporter" would be akin to ABC World News Tonight, hiring Pauly Shore to be their 5:30 PM anchor. For instance, Wigderson, as an "objective" "education" "reporter" called for the assassination of State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tony Evers. Hard to take someone serious after that!
Luckily we at CogDis caught that and called it out because the watchdog fell asleep.
Couple that with Wigderson, deciding that some women deserve to get their pussy grabbed without permission by The Donald, and really he is not fit to be unaccompanied in a school, much less "reporting" on education.
I am not even saying that because Wigderson has made it a hobby trying to get me fired from various jobs. I had nothing to do with this, this was purely the free market. There is only so much room, for BS stories, lack of facts and blatant lies in the right wing niche of Wisconsin. Between Mediatrackkkers, Right Wisconsin, Christian Schneider, and Maciver the market is saturated! We will see where they go from here, maybe they will hire a crew that actually cares about integrity.
But wait there is more.
It is not just Jimmy Wigderson that deserves to take credit for the mess that was Wisconsin Watchdog, their Wisconsin Bureau Chief(hey Capper, I need a better title!), Matt Kittle, also played a major part(full disclosure, Matt and I attend the same church).
Kittle is known for attacking public workers with all of his might, while defending two time loser and convict, Kelly Rindfleisch and spent as much time as possible pushing John Doe propaganda.
As the saying goes, There is no there there! and now they are not there!
As Wiggy tweeted out:
"The Franklin Center is shutting down," James Wigderson, who covered education, tweeted early Friday.
That was a follow-up to his previous tweet from Thursday night that read, '"Email account closed. And with that, Watchdog.org shall publish no more."
