Is This Verified?

This would be one reason why there isn't an actual investigative reporter in Chicago:
  • ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7 isn’t just Chicago’s top-rated television station. With employees related to three prominent Democrats, it also may have the most politically connected newsroom in town. Morning news anchor Tanja Babich is the daughter-in-law of U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, recently hired per-diem reporter Meghan Kluth is the daughter of Congressman Mike Quigley, and per-diem reporter Alexis McAdams is the niece of Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart.
Dart hired all sorts of reporters, reporters' spouses and reporters' spawn to six-figure jobs over the past few years. The other listed instances show the incestual relationship between the Machine and the media.

Collusion I tell you. A "free" press or unbiased one too boot. Politicians using local operatives to influence election outcomes and get out that party message or party propaganda. No Hillary type dossier required to make a "Collusion" case.

Where are all those special prosecutors? The Congressional and Senate hearings? Is the ABC7 news team just willing accomplices for the Cook County Political Crime Syndicate operating at the local and highest levels of federal government? Objectivity my ass. Influence by carefully placed agents of the elite political class from just one side of the aisle. Those infiltrating agents make well deserved six-figures ensuring the "correct" message gets out to the masses. Pravda or truth comrades.

It seems ABC7 is operating like Tass, The official Soviet era state run media outlet who served its murderous eliminating opposition totalitarian human rights abusing regimes well.

Remember those Congressional hearings in 1963 revealed "Communist Goals". Goal # 20-Infiltrate the Press. Goal # 15- Capture one of the political parties. Very similar tactics. No delusion-its all Soviet style Collusion. Russia. Russia. Russia.

Joliet Police Chief tips on news media after a OIS in their town. Posted on their Facebook page.

This is a letter of concern from your Police Chief.
​On Wednesday, February 6th, two of our brave officers went to the home of a suspected bank robber. While they were speaking with a female inside the home, the suspected bank robber engaged and attacked one of our officers while holding a box cutter type knife. Fearing for his life and the lives around him, the officer was forced to act and shot the suspect in order to stop the threat.
​Shortly after the incident, some local media outlets repeated false statements which were given to them by unvetted and uncorroborated sources. It is disappointing that these outlets did not ensure that they had their facts correct before they spread this disinformation. One media outlet compounded the problem yesterday by continuing the false narrative. They printed an account of the incident from someone who was not at the scene and had no factual basis upon which to base their account of the events. To make matters worse, this media outlet was in possession of the press release which was issued by the Will County Major Crimes Task Force (which was conducting the investigation), but chose to highlight misleading and unsubstantiated allegations over a narrative which was supported by investigation and evidence.
​Experienced media professionals have an obligation to the public to ensure that they are disseminating accurate information. Media professionals should understand Police Departments cannot provide detailed information during the course of an investigation. We do, however, provide them with the information that we can give at the moment. In lieu of responsible reporting, certain media outlets will seek out any information from anyone that will talk to them whether they are credible or not in order to print a story to sell newspapers or gain followers on click media. Media professionals should consider the possible repercussions when inaccurate information is reported. The community should be able to trust media outlets to report reliable information, not uncorroborated or false accounts.
​We ask you, our community, community leaders, family and friends to provide us with that understanding when the media chooses not to.
Thank you,
Chief Al Roechner

I read the Tribune and Sun Times. Both online because I am out of Chicago.

What I find funny is that the Tribune ran the story of the little angel in the public school fighting and biting the police. It also ran the story when she was cut loose in court by the States Attorney "in the interest of justice." But, here is the thing, the Trib did not give her name because she is a minor.... the Sun Times had her name, and photo of her leaving the court with her dad and her attorney.

WTF?

That is disgraceful. Funny how whenever the tell a story (we all know they don’t report the truth) that involves a entity owned by its parent company, they advise the viewers of such. But not in these situations. What happened to Chicago legends like Bulldog Drummond? Report the facts as they are known, not assist in hyping propaganda and 1 groups agenda. This explains a lot. Time to stick with a fairer reporting station. Channel 9 does a better job, although they don’t come out and promote law and order, at least they don’t appear to hate it. Send the message, tune out WLS TV Chicago channel 7.

Interestingly, they are doing the same thing unions do...circle the wagons for job security. Safety in numbers. Cept it never works out for those kept on tge outer ring.

Journalists are the ring outside the politicians, and cops encircle both of those. Firemen slip in between journalists and cops when there is a fire but hide out away from the circles when there isnt any. Government goons, the real ones called administration are insulators for politicians...and always have been.

Channel 9 News at noon has become unwatchable. It’s subtle but their Trump hate and liberal bias becomes obvious if you watch for awhile. Any goods news about something Trump says, the economy or foreign relations is followed by a comment like, “There is no independent verification of this”, or “other economists are concern about”, or “However foreign policy experts worry that”. Stories about DemocRats or liberal policies never have the disclaimer following the story. Steve Sanders believers dull, expressionless news when talking about Repubs or Trump, but looks pleasant and smiles when talking about liberals. I doubt he does it on purpose. He probably doesn’t even know he’s doing it.

Citizen reader: You see people, when you learn about things like this AND the fact the Sun-Times endorsed Lori Lightfoot you have to understand the cause and affect of the media on corrupting the political process and ruining the effectiveness of government. News media should be impartial monitors of the politicians and NOT their family members. When a newspaper endorses a Mayoral candidate they just put it out that you should not vote for that candidate. One of my favorites is WLS Radio, Bill Cameron and his Democrat Happy Hour Radio show on Sunday nights. What a load of crap that was a few years ago when I stopped listening. They may like to call Bill the dean of city hall politics but I call him and all of the so called journalists on that show in the bag for the Cook County Machine. It is really pathetic.

How are those circulation numbers for the The Scum Times and the The Fibune? I imagine they are pretty dismal. Those with half a brain in their heads noodled out that the gatekeepers at those once fine institutions would filter news to fit the leftist template and canceled subscriptions.
Same is happening in television land. People cutting the cable and turning to internet websites and YouTube channels that give consumers the unfiltered truth instead of the socialist party line. You can bet your bottom dollar the crooked media was bought off by the man behind the curtain during the Lord of the Flies terms in office. The media’s day of reckoning is coming.

The ahole media in this town has decided that the machine will continue. They all have conspired to make one of the 4 machine pod the next mayor. Vallas never had a chance as no stories and no media. Vallas was unable to raise money because of this. The media picked Mendoza to be one of the chosen because she is a Rahm ass kisser and her whole staff is Rahm scum. Prickwinkle was anointed because she licks union ass. Daley received tons of money from finance scum to continue the pay to play. No mention that his crooked family destroyed this city and even fixed a murder. And Chico is ok because he’s a total machine pos and a sanctuary city fan. All four are machine scum. And the stupid media is all part of it. All the stations and slum times and fibune all take dictation from the lefts multi million dollar taxpayer financed spin machine.
