We've talked a lot about what the contract does or doesn't do (not as much as most seem to think) and who won or didn't win (both sides lost) but let's talk for a minute about the coverage. There were a lot of folks out there trying to cover the strike -- and a lot of folks out there trying to influence the coverage. I admired the folks at WBEZ, the Tribune, Catalyst, and the Sun Times who were trying to cover the whole thing -- live, in many cases, despite lack of cooperation or coordination among the various newsmaking entities.
I enjoyed Whet Moser's bloggy reflections at Chicago Magazine. I really liked Harold Myerson's blog posts over at The Nation.
And I admired folks like Mark Brown and Kate Grossman who were brave and independent enough to differ with their readers.
But that's just me. Who covered it best -- and what made their coverage distinct from everyone else's? Tell us your favorite/best source, and which story or update you liked best.
