The Huffington Post had the privilege of appearing on WBEZ's daily news magazine this Friday to discuss some of this biggest stories in Chicago this month.
Jen Sabella, editor of HuffPost Chicago, was a panelist on the Chicago Public Radio program "Eight Forty-Eight" Friday morning, alongside Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg, WBEZ's Natalie Moore and host Alison Cuddy. The three discussed headlines from July on the program's "Month In Review." (Listen to the segment here.)
Here were Jen's picks for some of the biggest headlines of the past month (some of which were discussed on the program):
Most Significant Story: The reporting by Mark Konkol and Frank Main of the Chicago Sun-Times on "why they won't stop shooting in Chicago," and the the "no-snitch code" that keeps violent offenders on the streets.
Underreported: News coming out of the University of Illinois, including the new President's assistant making nearly $200K and the firing of a religion professor for alleged homophobic teachings. And, today, his rehiring.
