U. of Wisconsin campus paper fills pages with mostly anti-Scott Walker op-eds

Count by The College Fix finds roughly three times as many anti-Walker pieces than pro-Walker pieces in Wisconsin student newspaper’s opinion section in recent weeks.

MADISON, Wis. – Over the last month and a half, the opinion pages of the student newspaper at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have been crowded with arguments against Gov. Scott Walker, suggesting – among other things – that his platform will decimate higher education, ruin the environment and hurt the economy.

The launch of the second semester here in late January coincided with Gov. Walker’s prominent thrust into the national spotlight, with his higher education reforms and presidential prospects prompting a storm of criticism within the Badger Herald’s pages.

Since late January, the campus newspaper has published 20 anti-Scott Walker opinion pieces and letters to the editor, according to a review of the Badger Herald’s online opinion section by The College Fix. Two more pieces didn’t bash Walker directly, but cast him in a negative light.

In contrast, the newspaper has only published six pro-Walker pieces in that time. In effect, published anti-Walker opinion pieces outnumber pro-Walker ones by a ratio of about 3 to 1…

List of anti-Walker pieces since late January:

1. Walker’s success is contingent on legislative majorities

2. Against Right-to-work
