Anything for a Story?

  • A Chicago television reporter is in hot water over her technique in pursuing a source in the disappearance of Lisa Stebic. There are reports that the reporter has been fired, but NBC 5 would not confirm that Tuesday afternoon.

    The Plainfield mother was last seen by her husband, Craig Stebic, on April 30, and there has been no sign of her since despite an intense investigation and repeated searches.

    Craig Stebic is not talking to police, but [...] he appears to be talking to a local reporter. A video captured Friday shows WMAQ-TV reporter Amy Jacobson wearing a bathing suit top and wrapped in a towel at Craig Stebic's home. Also seen in the video are Stebic himself, his sister from Iowa and Jacobson's two children.
So a reporter (Jacobson) is bringing her kids to the house of someone who can charitably be called "a person of interest" in a mysterious disappearance. Nice. Could it be something more than a story?
  • Jacobson was reportedly invited to the home Friday at the last minute. It was her day off and she was with her children.

    Neighbors tell CBS 2 that Jacobson has been visiting Stebic's house frequently since his estranged wife's disappearance. Why she has been there is unclear;
She's been there enough for neighbors to notice and comment on it. Perhaps she ought to be subpoenaed and any notes, recordings or video of "interviews" be examined at length. There is no reporter/source privilege if a crime is being covered up.

Wow, I would have thought we see this video 24/7, on ALL of the news channels here - just like the Abbate tape and the 25th District parking lot tape.

I guess, in the media, what is good for the goose, is NOT good for the gander.

Wait a minute, she was off duty, why does it matter? Oh, this just makes ALL reporters look bad. Especially the white ones. We better group them all together and change the system. Fire the manager of the station and get together a group of Reverands and a perverted priest to stop this insanity! Call da mayer!

Seriously, I like her crazy big furry hat she wears in the winter. Poor girl, someone was out to get her. The black man, bringing us down.

Take a look at Zorns blog defending her of course. http://blogs.chicagotribune.com/news_columnists_ezorn/

Now everytime NBC 5 is mentioned in the media will they play the video? Everyday maybe for weeks and weeks?

If you ask me, its a non story. Went to a bbq to develop a source. Invited by sister of killer. The real story is that the press made a mountain out of a molehole, turned a non-story into a story, and jacobson is tried and convicted in the press. This is known as Karma folks. Hopefully this happens to the other Jacobsen, the highly respected (cough) Walter "Wally the Drinka" "Wally the Drunk" "DUI Wally" Jacobson. Maybe she will think twice at her next job before airing stories that hang coppers out to dry when there is no real cause...

How does it feel? What goes around, comes around. Just like the police have to make split second decisions, Amy found out how, even with good intentions, things can blow up in your face.

I have to admit that the media bastards are consistant in this case with their "blood in the water" mentality. The scum-times uses the word "partying". the other media focus on the "bikini" issue. In defense of amy, ch2 is only showing what they want of the video. All I saw was her talking on a cell phone while constantly looking out into the yard. Its not like she was drinking beer and doing the limbo.

Well, I hope she remembers what it is like to be at the other end of the stick.

Just as the media goes back time again on Burge, greylord, marquette 10, etc.; why not have a 2 hour special on "Chicago Media Gone Wild". Walter Jacobson (no relation) Hosea Sanders, Joan Esposito and so on. Lets rip the scabs off of their wounds like they do to police officers and their families

In all fairness Marian (sp) Brooks of NBC5 didn't get fired for her 4 year affair with the crook, mayor of Atlanta and the Hispanic bimbo in LA doesn't get fired for her escapades with the mayor out there. Why does the white girl get fired? Not that I really care, Amy would dump on us in a heartbeat to scoop everyone else.

What cracks me up is how everyone is surprised by this! I can't tell you how many times I've seen coppers tripping over themselves running to the front desk anytime she is in the station on a story. Men are so easily-manipulated by sex it is pathetic.

All I kept thinking about when seeing that footage was what great cleavage she had and hoping that towel would drop so I could see that butt! Even though she must be as goofy as they come, I'd still do her!!!

How is a male copper checking out a female at the front desk the same as female reporter showing up at possible muderer's house??

I heard this broad whining and simpering on WLS radio about how she was shot through the grease, how the media manipulated and misrepresented the facts, and blah blah blah.
Good for you, whiny bitch. Get a taste of what the police have to eat from the plate of you blood drinking media vultures.
Now my day'll be complete when that lying simp Larry Smellin Yellen from FOX TV gets shitcanned. Maybe both him and Amy can work for the Chicago Defender.
Delivering newspapers.

What happened with that? I remember the case and knew one of the families of the kids that shot himself. One of the guys that flipped was Jerahmiah Joyces kid. Isnt that funny, Joyces kid is a key player in one of the biggest dope cases in CROOK county in the 80s and he {dad} is best friends with...anyone, anyone,Buler, Buler.....THE MAYOR!!!! Joyce has all the concestions at the airport worth MILLIONSS!!! The kid is probably the bagman for that one too. How do they not get indicted?? We dont have a city sticker on the first day its due and we get gigged a day....WTF!!!!

If this entire episode doesn't show the general public and coppers in particular what TODAY'S media are capable of, nothing ever will.

In my humble opinion every aspect of this fiasco is suspect.

The media will manipulate facts,distort truth and report anything to attract numbers. FACTS,OBJECTIVITY,TRUTH,ETHICS AND MORALS ARE ALL WORDS UNKNOWN TO THE MEDIA.

This is probably why ratings are in the dump and people discard most journalism as garbage. Learn to discern the truth and read between the lines. The corporate media only serve one master, the wealthy power elite.
