Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
This morning as I filled in for Jay Weber at Newstalk 1130 WISN, I read the first paragraph of a recent column from a daily newspaper somewhere in America and asked the audience to tell me what the author was writing about. Here’s the paragraph:
“A dangerous enemy threatens America. This threat is hard to confront, because it does not represent any one government and is not in any one location; it operates in smaller cells all over. If not stopped, it is sure to inflict violence on the country, decimate cities and alter our way of life.”
I was flooded with calls. Three people said The Tea Party, two guessed Christianity and others said terrorism, poverty, global warming, child nutrition, Republicans, socialism, government debt.
None of them were correct.
For the right answer, read this.
