Wanna be like Mark?

Fox News does.
One day after I told you about Chicago's last trailer park, the plans to build houses and condos there, Ol' Channel 32 sent A.J. Sterling down to "Little Arizona" in Hegewisch to play copycat.

She pretty much followed href="http://www.suntimes.com/news/neighborhoods/578431,CST-NWS-hoods28.article">my script.
She didn't bother to say, "We wouldn't have thought about coming down here if it wasn't for that curly-headed guy from the Sun-Times.

Of course, it's not because I'm a genius.That's just what TV stations do.

Unless it's a press conference, tragedy or an investigation into whey tomatoes are red, they read the Sun-Times (or some other newspaper) and do their own version of our stories. And lots of times they don't bother to mention the part about reading it in the Sun-Times.

So, the next time you watch the TV news, take a look at the newspaper from that day or the day before. You'll probably find that you could have learned something interesting about your city a whole day earlier.

Sorry to call you out A.J., but your better looking and make a whole lot more money than me.
Plus, I'm jealous and petty.
