Following the money trail: Anatomy of a right-wing smear campaign

Oh, surprise.

The political relationship between the two front groups, Media Trackers and MacIver Institute, [quite often associated with Americans for Prosperity (sic)] pro-corporate spokespuppet Rick Esenberg, and conservative mouthpiece Charlie Sykes is perhaps not incidental. Their common denominator is the Bradley Foundation. In November, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported "With more than $600 million in assets, the Bradley Foundation provides a cornerstone for the conservative movement in Wisconsin and across America." And not only does Bradley fund MacIver and Media Trackers, Sykes and Esenberg are both Bradley beneficiaries.

Let me get this straight...anyone who does not agree with you conducts "smear"?

The Bradley Foundation is one of the great community organizations in WI.

You should be ashamed of the demonization you conduct in this post.
