Republicans using Wisconsin Walker petitions as blacklists? Big surprise.
This last Sunday's edition of This American Life features a story of a (now) pro-Walker Wisconsin college student, who signed the recall petition. Years later he applied to be a student regent. Walker nominated him. After a day at the capital a Walker aide called him at home and asked if had signed the petition to recall Walker. He replied in the affirmative. Later that night he was told his nomination was being rescinded.
Again, non-traditional media/storytelling schools the mainstream news media.
