CPD Hires R. Kelly Media Pal

Former Fox Chicago News anchor Robin Robinson has apparently been hired by the Chicago Police Department.


That would be this Robin Robinson:

"News staffers at Chicago Fox affiliate WFLD-TV were told in a memo to 'take particular care in our reporting of R. Kelly' so the station could get 'exclusive access' to the R&B star, who is awaiting trial on 21 child pornograhy charges in Chicago. The memo states: 'When referring to the alleged victim . . . do not specify an age . . . she is simply underaged. Do not use video of him in orange jumpsuit . . . unless specifically referring to his arrest [last June] in Florida." A WFLD veep tells Robert Feder the memo was written by an executive producer after being pressured by news anchor Robin Robinson, who is a Kelly pal."

But nevermind!

I will give Robinson credit for this bit of truth-telling - though it's hardly enough to overcome her R. Kelly business. But her approach has served her well!
