I joined The Pundit Panel with Charlie Sykes at Insight 2016 with Brian Sikma of Media Trackers and RightWisconsin Managing Editor Collin Roth discussing a wide array of topics from local elections to the presidential primary.
In his most extensive on-camera interview ever, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Dan Bice does not hold back. For example, he reveals that his editors squashed a story regarding improper and illegal activity by a prominent Democratic lobbyist. He praises the work of Media Trackers and Wisconsin Watchdog and admits “It’s good for me when Scott Walker wins.” Seriously. The Dailytakes show starts off with this must-watch interview. Worth every second of your time.
This was a refreshing change of pace. On this week’s episode of the Half Hour Happy Hour, I put Charlie Sykes in the interview hot seat. He sounds off on the Walker for President operation, the sleepy state of the State Supreme Court race, the reporting decisions of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and more. He looks back on his 22 years as host of Midday with Charlie Sykes on AM 620 WTMJ in Milwaukee and he gives a glimpse into his upcoming new book.
I asked him how long he planned on continuing his radio show. Watch the show to see his surprising answer and catch my weekly rundown of current events with Nik Nelson. More…
