Wisconsin Democratic Senator Won't Talk to "Alternate Universe" Fox News

State Sen. Chris Larson, one of the younger members of the Wisconsin senate exodus and the one who does the most media interviews, posts a Facebook note:

FOX "NEWS" keeps calling for an interview regarding the riots and violent protests at the Capitol in response to a "modest" budget bill. I'm fairly certain they are covering an alternate universe all on their own somewhere.

Last week, the protests became a proxy for liberal anger at corporate power in general and the Kochs in particular. This week it's becoming a proxy for anti-Fox News anger.
