Northern Wisconsin Media on the Campaign

As we saw throughout last week's series of campaign kickoff events, Northern Wisconsin media gave the ban considerable coverage.

Ashland's True North TV interviewed campaign director Mike Tate, and Duluth's KBJR Channel 6 led their evening coverage with the Superior event.

The Superior Daily Telegram placed the campaign above the fold in their weekend edition, in a story reprinted in the Sunday Duluth News Tribune. In the article, one of the event speakers tells the reporter how her group is worried that the ban would hinder their ability to protect victims of domestic violence:
Ann Marie O'Malley of the Center Against Sexual and Domestic Abuse in Superior said she is concerned about the ambiguous language in the amendment, and thinks it will provide more loopholes for lawyers and lawmakers.

'The laws are so slim protecting victims of domestic violence right now, and we've done so much work,' she said at the event, where she was a speaker. 'This will really backpedal it.'
Readers in the Duluth-Superior area can also check out a piece in the next Duluth Reader Weekly.

On to coverage unrelated to the Superior event: the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram printed letters to the editor against the ban two days in a row. You can view them here and here (registration may be required). Dave Zweifel writes against the ban in Friday's Capital Times.

And finally, Steven Hyden aims for persuasion via laughter in a column that appeared in both The Oskosh Northwestern and The Appleton Post-Crescent.
