"Job slump is Walker's fault"
Yes, it's totally appropriate to blame the governor's policies for the slumbering condition of Wisconsin's economy. Here's why.

Not exactly:

Jack Norman is a Milwaukee-based writer and former research director at the Institute for Wisconsin's Future.

True, it's indirect. But publishing it definitely sends a message.

I'd like to think that's true, but they are going to keep publishing right wing op-eds too.

Their editorial board said it's nobody fault, move along - nothing to see here.

Ya, both the WSJ and the MJS will print dissenting views.

Actually, the WSJ has largely gotten out of the journalism business. They just refrain from taking opinions on difficult issues.
