Whitewashing Wisconsin's Protests

Brent Bozell: 
If you've followed the mainstream press, you've seen lots of civil protests, lots of interviews with reasonable teachers, pictures of signs about the need for quality education.

But have they been giving viewers and readers the whole story? Not quite.
Here's a sampling of what you likely missed:

A protester holds a sign in the Capitol rotunda during a demonstration Friday against Gov. Scott Walker's attempt to push through a bill that would restrict collective bargaining for most government workers in Madison, Wis.Uncivil language

•During the protests, there have been signs comparing Gov. Walker to Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mubarak, even Satan. Some signs featured Walker's face in crosshairs with the words "Don't Retreat, Reload: Repeal Walker." Another held a sign saying "Political Death to Tyrants." Click here to see a gallery of signs (caution, several signs contain adult language).
