Deceptive Headline Can’t Hide Truth of Innovation Center’s Wasted Millions

Over at the Journal Sentinel, the dodgy headline on Tom Daykin’s story can’t hide the truth of Whitewater’s taxpayer-funded ‘business incubator’ – after a year, the overwhelming majority of space is either for public tenants or is still empty.

Not businesses, not private concerns, but public money overwhelmingly for new digs for public employees…or used by no one at all.

The headline reveals the cynicism and condescension behind the entire project: the conviction that residents and readers are so dim-witted that they’ll think no father than a few words in large type.

The story – likely cribbed from a press release – shows how much more Whitewater’s municipal administration prefers exaggerations about accomplishments to actual accomplishments.
