Eyewitness News Wide Shut

Did Chicago-era news miss Lech Walesa’s visit to the Second City and endorsement of Adam Andrzejewski for governor? That’s what the Founding Bloggers write:

Last week, Nobel Laureate, Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, and former president of Poland, Lech Walesa, traveled to Chicago to endorse a political candidate for governor of Illinois.

Who he endorsed doesn’t matter.  The fact that he is here endorsing anyone at all should be considered newsworthy.

Unfortunately for Chicago residents, and the Polish community specifically, if you get your news from the city’s local television stations, you might not have even known that he was in town, let alone that he attended a Tea Party, and endorsed Adam Andrzejewski for governor.

Could this media blackout have anything to do with a political bias in the news room?

Well…
