The Media Action Center has been monitoring the five local Talk Radio shows on Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s WISN (Clear Channel) and WTMJ (Journal Communications) and has come up with some stunning results. Members of Media Action Center Wisconsin will release those results at a press conference Tuesday, May 22, at 10:00 AM, in front of WTMJ, 720 East Capitol Drive Milwaukee, and supporters of Tom Barrett will be present to demand comparable time throughout the remainder of the campaign.
The Media Action Center found that each of those radio stations are giving an average of 50 minutes every day to Scott Walker supporters to promote their candidate, while giving only seconds to Tom Barrett supporters. That’s the monetary equivalent each of those radio stations giving between $70,000 to $180,000 in free airtime to the GOP – every week during the recall election.
Republicans are breaking the law in Wisconsin…SURPRISE! Will the FCC intervene and give require Tom Barrett equal airtime?
