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