Scandal vs. sanction
The Georgia Thompson case is now officially a scandal, according to today's page one headline.
And the State Elections Board's finding that Congressman Mark Green has illegally transferred $467,000 in special interest money, and the board's order to return the money? For the last two days, that has been described as a "sanction," here and here.
Do you think the headline writers are conscious of how their work will look in campaign television commercials, or is that just an accident?
I'm trying hard not to be a conspiracy theorist, but it gets harder every day.
UPDATE: The final piece of evidence that the Journal Sentinel new pages have leaned heavily Greenward: McBride defends the newspaper. I rest my case.
