Go Fund Me Page Needed

We're looking to buy Fran Spielman and Frank Main cardboard boxes for installation on Lower Wacker Drive - because when the wind blows cold, we want them to remember what tools they were of Daley, Rahm and the Machine for years. We're also hoping to buy Mope-rah a threadbare towel she can wrap her self-righteous ass in:
  • The owner of the Chicago Tribune has entered into a nonbinding letter of intent to buy the Chicago Sun-Times, providing a lifeline to the scrappy but struggling tabloid.

    In an announcement Monday afternoon, Tronc, which operates newspapers including the Tribune and the Los Angeles Times, said that Wrapports, the Sun-Times owner, will officially put the paper on the block Tuesday, and that a deal will be struck with Tronc if no other bidders emerge by June 1.

    The announcement also said the Sun-Times will remain an independent newsroom.
Which will last all of a year...if they're lucky. Why run two newsrooms when one will do? Econ 101.

Oh that explains a lot. A "tabloid" like the inquirier?

I'm going to take up a collection for my favorite wife-beating jagbag Neil Steinberg. If he gets canned, he'll go on a booze-fueled bender and bounce his old lady off a few walls, and we don't want that to happen. Fuck Mark Brown though. His old lady has a job within The Machine.

No worries. Dart or Rahm will find a high paying job for them.

Scum-Times and Fibune...

Even without consolidation,
are the opposite ends of the same
Chicago journalistic turd.

There is no clean end by with to
pick the stinking thing up.

Well... It'll dissolve in the rain
and get washed away or some poor
slob will manage to step in it
and track it all over.

Looking forward to seeing avowed haters like
Mitchell, Steinberg, Mitchell, Brown,
Mihalopoulos, Spielman, Sneed et al,
dressed in stinking shit-stained rags
and pushing purloined shopping carts
containing the salvageable remnants
of their lives and trying to beat the
cut-off at the Franciscan Outreach
Shelter at Harrison & California...

We'd roll by just to point and laugh...

"We don't get why you guys are so hostile,
bitter and cynical. Perhaps if you were
friendlier and smiled more?"

Looking forward to the total collapse of the print news in Chicago. You newspaper people best jump on the monstor and post your resume. There are not many jobs available for purveyors of lies, bullshit and nonsense and what is available will be filled quite quickly. Hopefully, Moprah will be working as a short-order cook at the Steak + Beggar!

There are going to be a lot of unhappy demorat union workers when they read in the paper the impending downsizing resulting in them getting the axe prior to getting their pink slips. And Rahm's response to try and keep jobs in the City, silence. What does Rahm care, he still gets his three squares a day and still plenty of voters left that still love for him to be mayor again.

'independent newsroom"-independent from whom? Not from spouting liberal talking points or reporting anything that might make Trump look good. News papers are dying from self inflected wounds. No real reporting anymore that lets the blame for whats happening in Chicago fall where it may. Protect the Democrats at any cost even if it means your credibility is 0.

Citizen reader: probably the least noticed day will be the one when the print media ceases to exist in Chicago. It is so irrelevant it is amazing. What happened to the Mike Royko days for newspapers is really amazing and is not something I would have ever predicted. They just kind of faded away.

This is a perfect example of why people are fleeing the liberal news media, especially the papers. If you just look at the Dem's and how the papers support their lies you will realize it's true about the papers bias. It's interesting to see the political swing in the other direction, and the papers and other media outlets going belly-up. I don't know to many people who are reading and believing anything the liberal news is putting out.

Both newspapers have been spouting the Chicago Democratic Machine propaganda for years. There hasn't been independent journalism in this town in ages so no great loss if both those lying rags went under.

I suspect that this is a last gasp of the Sun-Times and it is only a matter of time when it either folds or is downgraded to an internet only news source. I have already cancelled my Tribune monthly subscription. I got tired of reading Eric Zorn, Hupke, Dahleen Gladston and a few others in their constant anti-white, anti conservative, anti-cop and anti-Trump articles based on no evidence , just rumor and conjecture and " what ifs?"

What gives, did government funding dry up for the Scum-Times?
I wouldn't even call it a newspaper, maybe a communist indoctrination pamphlet, but not a newspaper.

FRANK MAIN is a lap dog for Tom Dart. When Darts close pal and puppy investigator Larry Draus was indicted Main wrote this big fake news piece how Dart was working with the feds. The fact was Dart had no clue Draus was under investigation until the feds had him in cuffs. Frank Main is the biggest hatchet reporter at the Times.

Lol! 😆
Damn!
It's been many a year since we've turned our wheels
that way, but ye olde Steak and Egger is STILL
in business?

Their stock splits and profit sharing plan must
be a mofo!

As for Moperah being employed there?
Man... Why you want to jinx the joint?
Too many regular working stiffs drop
anchor to eat there.

Send Moperah to fuck up a place where
"Not My Mayor" eats.

Trying to sell newspapers to people who don't read. Maybe if they advertised red pop and .25 cent chips people would buy. Praise the people block the Watertower then raising their advertising rate don't mKe sense.

Seen the super scoops behind the Best Buy on North Ave waiting for the delivery truck bring back the empty refrigerator boxes.
Fold up those cardboard condos and tote'm back to Lower Wacker.

Insider Tip: there's an outlet for an extension cord by Smith & Wollensky if you can get a riverfront spot.
Reenact the spaghetti scene from The Lady and the Tramp, the swells tip generously.
Stroll on over to the original site of SunTimes and do a selfie at Trump International.

I hate to admit that I still get the Scum Times delivered every day. I used to get the Fibune every day for about 15 years. The Fibune got too expensive and I flipped to the Scum Times. Both papers made me sick reading them, all the ultra liberal, leftist bullshit!! I couldn't even read certain columns such as Mary Mitchell. Both papers are anti Police, white guilt, racist, anti POTUS Trump etc. They used to constantly berate President Bush, now it's President Trump. I basically get the paper just to read the sports section, I know it's all online, but I'm old and still enjoy relaxing and reading the paper, I can see through all the pro Chicago machine liberal politics. I just hope some Sheeple start to figure out the fake news, lib bullshit!

In Today's Tribune they list 17 shootings. No race of any of the perps...even with multiple witnesses. (Amish perhaps?) If there had been even ONE police shooting in self defense, the Tribune would place the race of the officer in it's first paragraph. You know, to stir those racial flames that help to sell newspapers. Oddly though, most of those who would give a rats ass about the "victim" are unlikely to read beyond a 6th grade level. But they know how to block city streets at rush hour holding #BLM and Justice For Quantavious signs.

I subscribed to the Scum Times since the late 80's. I grew tired of reading articles bashing GWB too and cancelled my subscription telling them why. Never bought a paper since. A free press is free only as long as they inform the public without showing bias. Looks like our second amendment is going to "Trump" the first and eventually come to its rescue, restoring a free, unbiased media.

Rahm donors c3 were supposed to pay for Lolla grant park damage. A Foia from the park district came back stating the park district had no information regarding this and was appealed to AG who agreed that no documents exist for the work. In other words have a fundraiser for mayor pay to play...no need to fix the damage. Mark brown got the story and was afraid to write it. The scum times and all their reporters are scum.
