Journal-Sentinel Reporter Ignores Facts and Misleads Readers

Sup. Alexander Says Journal Sentinel Reporter "Ignores Facts and Misleads Readers"

By - Nov 3rd, 2014 08:41 am

Friday evening, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reporter Georgia Pabst published an article with a misleading title and context.

Ms. Pabst called Supervisor Deanna Alexander twice on Friday to ask about a newsletter sent to constituents in October.  The newsletter, accurate at publication, alerted fall general election voters that they would need to show a photo ID to vote.  After the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the Voter ID requirement for the November election, Supervisor Alexander used email, social media, and a second mailing—a bold post card—to update voters with the new information that electors would not need to provide an ID in order to vote.

“Ms. Pabst knew all of this, yet continued to publish an article falsely proclaiming that the notice was a mistake,” Supervisor Alexander said.  “This irresponsible report has increased confusion by leading voters to believe that I either didn’t notice the error or purposely sent untrue information.”

“Ms. Pabst knew on Friday that I had provided voters with two rounds of information and that each were accurate at the time I published them; there was no mistake.  Her article is disappointing and sloppy journalism.”  Supervisor Alexander concluded.
