The Proft Motive

At the risk of sounding redundant, McHenry County has its own fake news source, the McHenry Times. Like the Lake County Gazette (Lake County's #1 fake news source), the McHenry Times is one of many freeshopper tabloids published by conservative talk show host Dan Proft.

As if to flaunt their fake news bona fides, the McHenry Times incorrectly reported that Craig Wilcox is challenging Pam Althoff for State Senate.

None of this escaped the attention of the McHenryCountyBlog:

Take a look at this screen shot from McHenry Times, a publication financed by Dan Proft: Other than getting Wilcox' opponent wrong, the article gives favorable treatment to Wilcox.

Note to Dan Proft Ops: You're not even fooling the McHenryCountyBlog any more.
