Be Careful Who Your “Friends” Are!

I recently attended the Educate to Elevate Conference in Madison, and I was very skeptical going in. While I left the conference just as skeptical, I think there were a few good things that came out of it. It is never bad when people get together and discuss ways to improve education. I also had […]

View from Outside the Bubble!

Posted December 4th, 2012 @ 2:02 PM by

When I first started with Forwardlookout, we brought you the stories of how Sunny Schubert writes a local column disguised as public interest, in the Herald-Independent when in fact she is actually a paid hack of the far right wing extremist organization WPRI. As if that was not bad enough, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel also […]

Local Progressive Talk

Posted November 27th, 2012 @ 8:25 AM by

We all know by now that Sly in the Morning and the local news team, on 1670 WTDY was ambushed and fired the day before Thanksgiving by new General Manager Rick Mccoy. Thus effectively ending any local voice that progressives have. Also ending any chance that people have of actual real time news coverage. With […]

By now everyone knows that Scott Walker promised as part of his campaign, that he would “create” 250,000 jobs. “get government out of the way of employers … who will then help Wisconsin create 250,000 jobs by 2015, and as we create those new jobs, we will be able to add 10,000 new businesses.” We […]

Desperate Times, Call for Desperate Measures!

Summer 2012, the Wisconsin republicans had the world by the balls. They had control over the State Assembly, the State Senate, the Governor and the Supreme Court. They were virtually untouchable(except for a recall). Then something happened, they tried to Govern. We all know the mess of ACT 10 and the turmoil and lawsuits that […]

Getting tired of the Wisconsin State Journal giving you a watered down version of the news and basically no coverage of the damage that the republicans have done to our state under the Fitzwalkerstan regime? Then head to the Barrymore tonight for a double feature! “United States of ALEC” The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) […]

It’s NOT Working at The State Journal!

Posted September 15th, 2012 @ 12:34 AM by

Recently, Capital Newspapers announce that they had cut 26 more jobs. Which is surprising since you would think that their union busting and massive support for ACT 10. Would have sparked an Wisconsin economy that would led to increasing employment at the Newspaper not decreasing it. I guess, since Scott Walker’s(who the Wisconsin State Journal […]

Wisconsin State Journal a Division of the MacIver Institute

Posted May 10th, 2012 @ 10:53 AM by

We all remember what happened last year, the teachers of the state, led by MTI, stormed the Capitol when ACT10 was introduced. Their actions gave power to the Wisconsin 14 to head to Illinois, thus denying the republicans a quorum and delayed the actual passage of ACT10 months when it was slated to pass in […]
