In fact, articles in recent editions of the newspaper mostly are negative pieces about Gov. J.B. Pritzker and Mayor Lori Lightfoot, mixed with a little positive coverage of GOP gubernatorial nominee Darren Bailey.
For instance one article, under the headline “More failure at Chicago Public Schools,” depicts declining school enrollment, with a big picture of the mayor and governor. Another article blames dropping test scores on “Pritzker(‘s) school lockdowns” during the COVID pandemic.
Particularly striking in one issue are two pages of mug shots of people accused of violent crimes who may be released without bail under terms of a criminal justice reform bill Pritzker signed into law. At least 25 of the 36 men pictured are Black.
The headline on another article, accompanied by pictures of the mayor and governor: “Lightfoot’s ‘summer of joy’ one of murder, mayhem.”
If that line sounds familiar, it’s almost verbatim the language used in an anti-Pritzker TV ad produced and aired by conservative activist Dan Proft’s People Who Play By the Rules PAC.
