He was not at top of their hit list, but he certainly was a very effective and persistent identifier of right-wing excess and corruption. He has fought tenaciously against the business interests in WI that seem intent on creating a South Carolina-like market, where most of the population works for $12 per hour subsistance wages.
Sly served as a rallying point for the entire state, his broadcasts were shared on the internet. This is not just a Madison thing.
It's possible that Sly was just a victim of a "format change." But it is not far-fetched to wonder if Koch/Freedom Works types are behind his temporary demise.
