Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism wins out against political opponents

Last month, Wisconsin legislators tried to kick the independently funded Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism off of the University of Wisconsin - Madison campus and prevent UW professors from working with the organization. The move (which was led by a legislator whose fundraising had been called into question by the WCIJ) prompted major backlash across the political spectrum and, over the weekend, it was vetoed by Wisconsin's Republican governor, Scott Walker.
