Local TV Notes: Garbage Wranglers

Because it's on.

1. CAN TV will broadcast Republican debate Tuesday night in the race to replace Jesse Jackson Jr. on Channel 27. The debate will also be streamed live here.

Then on Thursday night, CAN TV will bring you a candidates' forum from Governors State University hosted by Fox Chicago's Mike Flannery.

2. Retired NBC Journalist Was Garbage Wrangler At Marina City.

3. From the New Yorker's article about Dr. Oz:

"On the show, Oz identified Smith as a scientist, but Smith has no experience in genetics or agriculture, and has no scientific degree from any institution. He studied business at the Maharishi International University, founded by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

"Before the show aired, Bruce Chassy, a noted molecular biologist, wrote to Oz; he is a founder of Academics Review, a group of researchers who often debunk popular scientific claims. Chassy is professor emeritus in the department of food science and human nutrition at the University of Illinois.

"As a public-sector scientist, researcher, and academic administrator with more than forty years' experience, I am appalled that any medical professional would give a platform to the likes of Mr. Jeffrey Smith to impart health information to the public," Chassy wrote. "His only professional experience prior to taking up his crusade against biotechnology is as a ballroom-dance teacher, yogic flying instructor, and political candidate for the Maharishi cult's natural-law party."

Here is Chassy's full letter.

4. Chicago Prisoner, Mistakenly Released, Found Watching TV.
