State: No ID of juvenile murder suspect | Local News

MADISON — In the wake of a juvenile being charged with second-degree murder in the death of 42-year-old Melissa Moulton Hatch, the state is being extra-cautious not to release identifying details about the juvenile suspect.

Lies Are Illegal In The ‘Golden State’ Of Ben Winters

Winters says he knows exactly when he started writing Golden State: The day following President Trump’s inauguration. Specifically, it was after “the infamous incident of the inauguration crowd-size debate.”

Then-press secretary Sean Spicer had insisted that the crowds at the inauguration were the largest ever — a statement that sparked a heated exchange between White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and NBC’s Chuck Todd, in which Conway said Spicer had provided what she called “alternative facts.”

All that talk about facts versus alternative facts — and real news versus fake news — got Winters thinking about what
