The Tribune's ChicagoNow isn't just all sports and lifestyle blogs
like you may think. There are a bunch of them gathered under the
moniker "New & Opinion" that might be of interest (including the
ChicagoNow version of District 299).
Former Chicago Reporter guy Fernando Diaz runs these blogs, and he describes some of them here:
Joe is my favorite cop in the whole wide world and his posts are
genuine and often classic. Catch his comments all over ChicagoNow. Chicago Bar-tender: Jen Fernicola is our gal at the courthouses searching for the strange (and sad) but true dramas that unfold in lawsuits. ChicagoBusiness Insider: The ChicagoNow home of Crain's Chicago, loosening the flagship's tie on coverage of
Chicago's movers and shakers. Chicago Muckrakers: The staff of the Chicago Reporter magazine investigate the racial and socioeconomic roots of inequity in our city and region. Chicanisma: Seasoned journalist Teresa Puente opens a door on the Latino community to show us a world we may have never
known existed. Garrard McClendon Live: The CLTV host's blog is an extension of his show. One Story Up:
Megan Cottrell's unflinching coverage of the people in Chicago's public
housing is one of the most respected sources for it's coverage.
