More evidence that Tribune editorial board members don’t read their own newspaper

Wednesday, Oct 28, 2020

* Tribune editorial published at 3:28 pm today

The October rise in COVID-19 cases isn’t surprising because people are spending more time indoors, and after seven months in crisis mode, fatigue is settling in. Not everyone is keeping their guard up and masks on.

Here’s what we didn’t see coming: Gov. J.B. Pritzker and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot in conflict about whether to keep restaurant dining rooms open. As of this week, the governor ordered a new shutdown in the city of Chicago effective Friday, along with similar restrictions for Lake and McHenry counties, suburban Cook County and four other counties including DuPage. Caseloads and hospitalizations are rising. But Lightfoot disagrees with Pritzker’s decision.

We side with the mayor

* Tribune news report at 3:02 pm

A day after indicating she would try to talk Gov. J.B. Pritzker out of tightening restrictions in Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Wednesday she had met with the governor and won’t try to block his order to ban indoor bar and dining service in the city.

“We had a very frank and productive conversation with the governor and his team and my team as well. We explored a lot of issues and we came out of that discussion really committed to making sure that we work hard together.”

    If the editorial board doesn’t read their own paper, how can they expect anyone else to (subscribe)?


  2. - Norseman - Wednesday, Oct 28, 20 @ 4:24 pm:

    Odds that tomorrow’s editorial simply says, Nevermind.

    I’m not sure we need more evidence. I thought it was an established, proven fact.

    Statehouse Chick’s intertubes home page isn’t The Chicago Tribune… it’s probably WIND560.

    Pearson, Long, Munks, et al;

    I read you ALL, all aces in my book… I know it’s not your fault Statehouse Chick doesn’t read you all too.

    OW hits it on the head.

    Nah, Covidiots always double-down.

    I’m sure the folks at the Trib editorial board were giddy when they wrote this. But Lightfoot’s reversal was predictable. The city’s department of health director agreed with Pritzker. How can you possibly keep requiring people who travel to quarantine when coming to Chicago from other states but not acknowledge the rising case load in your own community? Lightfoot needs to learn to aim before she fires.

    In all fairness, it’s already tomorrow across the international dateline in the foreign country where the Timpone bot was writing that editorial.


  9. - Tim - Wednesday, Oct 28, 20 @ 6:25 pm:

    They have already edited it–without making any kind of note about the edit, as has become standard for Tribune opinion pieces.


  10. - Shytown - Wednesday, Oct 28, 20 @ 6:33 pm:

    They are sadly, horrible.


  11. - West Sider - Wednesday, Oct 28, 20 @ 7:01 pm:

    The Tribbies are pro business- closing restaurants hurts business- like “florist” and “undertakers” and “estate lawyers”.


  12. - Bruce - Wednesday, Oct 28, 20 @ 7:14 pm:

    No confusion as to what is news and what is opinion. Some readers cannot discern this. Editorial board is obviously separate entity.


  13. - bear 3 - Thursday, Oct 29, 20 @ 3:27 pm:

    The Tribune should not be counted on in print. Can not even find High School sports vs. Editorial comment and reporting. Col McCormick would not be pleased….
