 It’s a cruel irony that Pfc. Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in federal prison for revealing information the government wanted to keep secret from the American

On this week's episode of The Disclaimer, WMSE's weekly crosstalk between station promotions director Ryan Schleicher, A.V. Club Milwaukee editor Matt Wild and I, we consider whether Milwaukee can sustain a busy (and sometimes overbooked) events calendar, debate the logic of creating a playground under a bridge, and ponder the future of the UWM Post, which, like so many newspapers, has had difficu...

Recently a couple of A&E guys from the daily announced that they had accepted a buy-out for early retirement. Both the classical music guy and the theatre guy, who have been with the daily for some 30 years, are going to be taking it easy. Both will continue to write, but they won’t be covering nearly as much as they used to from here on out. . . .and reading over their final bits as regular con...

I normally don't have too much nice to say about the Smoking Gun, the online investigative reporting source that mostly just prints embarassing mugshots and harasses the usual celebrity whipping boys, but the site's article yesterday on how a jailed con man tricked the Los Angeles Times into implicating Sean "Diddy" Combs in Tupac Shakur's shooting is a stunning piece of Internet journalism.

The country�s largest weekly papers have now consolidated under the same corporate umbrella, but there are some perks to the Village Voice/New Times Media monster conglomeration. The papers pooled their resources to collectively sponsor a pretty impressive SXSW party this afternoon. I arrived in time to catch the tail end of The Soundtrack of Our Lives� set, and although the band�s bloate...

I haven�t weighed in on the highly publicized �Maxim reviewed the new Black Crowes album without hearing the damn thing� scandal, since I don�t have any interest in Maxim or the Black Crowes, but today the New York Post briefly reported a far more interesting angle to the story.
