Lies in WMC ad supporting Walker

Postby Shorty » Sat Sep 14, 2013 8:12 am

Have you seen the WDC tv ad thanking Walker for job growth? Here is the ad: http://host.madison.com/news/local/writ ... d507c.html

Just in case anyone believed their "facts" and claims:

Reality Check: WMC ad selective in statistics supporting Governor
Ads misrepresent Wis. economic ranking

""Wisconsin ranks fifth in the nation in new manufacturing jobs," the ad says. WISC-TV finds this needs clarification. It's true that the National Association of Manufacturers says that Wisconsin has had the fifth-highest growth of manufacturing jobs, adding some 38,000 jobs in the field. But the report cited by WMC counts jobs added from 2009 until 2013, which would include two full years that Governor Walker wasn't in office."
