AP Ignores Falling Obama-Era Union Rolls, Takes Aim at Wisconsin
January 30th, 2017 2:02 PM
You would think that the establishment press and the rest of the opposition to Donald Trump's administration might be able to capitalize substantively (shrieking fundraising letters don't count as "substance") on Kellyanne Conway's shaky reference to "alternative facts" about a week ago.
