Front Page Milwaukee Scoops Journal-Sentinel on Recruitment Center Investigation

When anti-war activists demonstrated in Milwaukee, some of them vandalized the Army Recruitment Center on Oakland Avenue near the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Federal authorities are now investigating the incident, which might involve a violation of Federal law.

Just yesterday, Front Page Milwaukee, the web-only newspaper published in the Journalism Department at UWM, broke the story. Their article went online at 3:00 p.m.

The Journal-Sentinel finally got a Regional News Brief on the issue posted at about 9:00 p.m.

It seems the student journalists at UWM are ahead of the monopoly dead tree outlet yet again, just as the blogosphere was ahead of the paper in reporting the offensive comments of Michael McGee, Sr.
