The Detroit News has a story that gives some insight into why Whitmer opened up the upper peninsula. Her husband wanted to put their boat in the water before the holiday weekend.

Over in the Detroit Free Press—not a word.
That has changed as of 8:46 AM this morning...

I survived four years of Carter. I imagine I can survive one year of Biden and three years of Harris.

Why would Big Wretchs' spokes flak 'refuse to comment' if it was only a 'rumor'? :lol

Report: Gretchen Whitmer’s Husband Asked for Special Help to Launch Boat

"The owner of a Northern Michigan dock company says Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s husband wanted his boat placed in the water before the Memorial Day weekend as Whitmer urged residents not to rush to the region.

No longer visible to the public, Facebook posts from NorthShore Dock LLC and its owner, Tad Dowker, focused on what Dowker said was a request last week by Whitmer’s husband, Marc Mallory. The posts have drawn the attention of Republican state lawmakers, who said the Democratic governor’s family may not be following her guidance for the rest of the state.

Whitmer’s spokeswoman, Tiffany Brown, didn’t confirm or deny Monday the assertions by the marina company or its owner. Brown said the administration wouldn’t address “every rumor that is spread online.”

Breitbart is unquestionably biased.

Trouble is, this report is actually 100% factual, as confirmed by the governor herself.


Things can only get better

OK then maybe you will accept the Detroit News instead which is where Breitbart got the story from. Here is a quote from the Breitbart article:

"The Detroit News reported Monday that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) husband exploited her position to urge a dock company to put his boat in the water before Memorial Day weekend, despite strict coronavirus guidelines."

It still is saying it like they KNOW 100% FOR CERTAIN that's what happened. We can speculate but none of us were there so they are making a leap and filling in the blank... that's not exactly ethical...

Restaurants are re-opening on June 8. The governor's husband was probably getting an uncontrollable urge to make a prank phone call to make a fake reservation at the most expensive restaurant in Lansing, and Gretch said, "No, no, we're not going through THAT again."

I am not trying to get into a big political argument, except that Whitmer is getting a universal slavish push by every single station.

But ethical conduct, what there was in the 70s-00s, went completely away when stations and networks decided the Trump was an evil so evil they literally make up stories. And once the DNC emails came out showing every network political reporter and producer was conspiring with Hillary, and they not only kept their jobs but were promoted, all the Central Michigan communications grads learned their lessons and are as biased in their reporting to help the party as they possibly can be.

You understand that the 50’s-early 00’s way of doing the news is an anomaly right?

You can't have a democratic representative system where the dissemination of information is limited, by broadcast licenses and government cable system contracts, to democratic party only supporting corporate outlets. Either bring back the fairness doctrine, or break up the media companies
