Exclusive Interview With Richard M. Daley Neither Exclusive Nor An Interview

"Former Mayor Richard Daley spoke exclusively with ABC7 Eyewitness News for the first time since he was hospitalized this winter," Ben Bradley reports.

1. Only if you define "exclusive" as "we caught up with the former mayor at the White Sox opener where anyone could have talked to him."

2. Only if you define "interview" as "we asked him about his health in several different ways and put cliches in his mouth that he parroted back without saying anything worth putting on the air."

3. Only if you define "reporter" as "someone so deferential to a man who oversaw torture and nearly bankrupted the city while running an entirely corrupt City Hall that he forgot to ask about the mayor's imprisoned nephew and the kid he killed."


It went a little something like this:

Bradley: "Any specific doctors' orders?"

Daley: "Just pay attention to him."

Bradley: "You haven't done that well in the past."

Daley: "No, I'm paying attention to him now!"

Bradley: "Was this a wake-up call?"

Daley: "Yeah, a wake-up call."


I wish it was a wake-up call, because I just fell asleep.
