Chicago Lite Observed

The anti-labor media highjacks the story about the CTU and Mayor Lightfoot

Not that I distrust Fox News and the New York Post but when was the last time one heard a thoughtful nuanced analysis about a labor struggle coming from America’s fifth estate?

Consider that the CTU is doing Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot a big favor — protecting its teachers, school staff and students. What else did (does), do we/she expect?

So turn our observations to how the Press has covered what resembles more poor scheduling communication than labor risking student mental health.

But no, Lightfoot, a ‘dubious candidate for re-election’ and a teacher’s union that has ‘too much power’ are the media’s villains here, not the media’s faulty description of how we are muddling through a lightning strike.

And of course Democrats are ‘concerned.’ (1)

Vapid reporting meets poor observation.
