Rick Snyder is getting all kinds of plaudits -- not for his own policies, but for one of former Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm's programs.
The Detroit Free Press says the tourism industry gave Snyder a standing ovation because he agreed to fund the Pure Michigan tourism ad campaign for $25 million. The program actually started under Granholm and has been hailed as a standout state tourism campaign.
The newspaper, of course, failed to mention that Snyder's predecessor started the campaign.
Wouldn't want to dull any of the luster for the newspaper's candidate, would they?
