NBC, Channel 15 (WMTV-Madison) Colludes with Capitol Police

WMTV tried to stage fake event in collaboration with Capitol Police
Update: Rebecca Kemble has nice wrap-up in The Progressive on WMTV's incompetent spinning for the Walker administration; and Carl Gibson reports on the costs of the arrest-happy Walker administration expending $1,000s in public revenue per each citation on stopping anti-Walker, pro-Wisconsin speech.

Never thought there is much of a news product at NBC, Channel 15 (WMTV-Madison).

Now, it appears WMTV colluded with the Capitol Police as part of a propaganda piece against the Solidarity Sing Along.

Typical of WMTV "news," the station managed to screw up even a planned hit piece, though the capitol police consciously lied to the Wisconsin public about the fake event, arranged by WMTV.

The credibility of WMTV and the Capitol Police, already on life support, is dead.

There was no event, just WMTV trying to stage one to make the point that permits can be obtained, though Wisconsin citizens argue the First Amendment, and Section Four of Wisconsin Constitution make the permit regime unconstitutional.

WMTV refuses to report this position on the Wisconsin Constitution.

Section Four of Wisconsin Constitution reads: "The right of the people peaceably to assemble, to consult for the common good, and to petition the government, or any department thereof, shall never be abridged."
