The [Tuesday] Papers

By Steve Rhodes / Posted on January 27, 2015

"Chicago's five mayoral candidates are set to answer questions as a group for the first time Tuesday morning at the Chicago Tribune editorial board's endorsement session," the paper reports.

Only one of the candidates has a chummy relationship with the editorial page editor.

Will the challengers get a Trib Nation event of their own before Election Day?

Maybe the Better Government Association should call for better media coverage of governing. Oops.

DOLD: Hi Rahm, good to see you again!

RAHM: You too, Bruce.

DOLD: And you are?

_____: Bob Fioretti. Nice to meet you.


"And which one of you nice gentlemen is Dock Walls?"


"The 10 a.m. session will be live streamed at chicagotribune.com and WGNtv.com," the Trib notes.

I'll be tweeting the debate in lieu of a column today, so follow along there.
