 In this case, screaming double standard at the JS. Literally. Savvy reader writes:


Recall when Gordon Hintz said, “You are f*cking dead” to Rep. Litjens? The newspaper got around to mentioning the publicly snarled declaration six days later, and then in a brief on page 2B, part of the Regional News Watch. It has not been mentioned since in print, other than by George Mitchell, in an op-ed.

Meanwhile, David Prosser, at one fed-up moment, called Shirley Abrahamson a “bitch” during a shouting match in private. This is reported in Sunday’s Journal Sentinel, on page 1A, in a story in the No. 2 spot, looks like a 36-point head, a 1,300-word story.

Well, then again, the cases are different. Prosser, after all, has been in legal trouble lately, caught in an Appleton massage parlor . . . Oh, wait. That wasn't Prosser.

Anyhow, kind of funny, how things can diverge, isn't it?
