MADISON, Wis. — As I was being turned away twice last week from covering the taxpayer-supported White Privilege Conference, I was assured no other media outlet would be reporting on the event.

My intuition told me otherwise, and it turned out to be correct.

The progressive Capital Times, which wrote a handful of glowing stories and editorials leading up to the four-day convention in Madison, published a piece Saturday describing how the workshops and discussions left the record-number crowd informed and inspired.
