Chicago Journalists Shield Rahm Emanuel and Threatens Radio Host

by Brittany Pounders on October 14, 2010

Wow, Chicago doesn’t play and an outside radio host for WIND just got a taste of the “thugs” when he dared to ask the questions that local journalist were ignoring. Rahm Emanuel, on the streets of Chicago, walking around with his jacket slung casually over his shoulder, is not appreciative of the direct questions on how the stimulus funds might have made him a millionaire, nor did he seem inclined to answer the questions concerning his residency.  However, it was more baffling to watch the local Chicago reporters close in around him and push the man with the hard questions out of the way.  Obviously, he wasn’t going anywhere and it pushed one of the Chicago reporters , Jay Levine, a local CBS affiliate, right over the edge where he literally exploded saying, “Let him finish or I’m gonna deck you!!!!!!”

Sure, the radio host was obnoxious but he was asking legitimate questions that Chicago deserves an answer to- so instead of pushing him out the reporters should have been doing their job and asking the tough questions themselves.  However, that little scuffle probably got more publicity for the WIND radio host than a simple answer would have anyways, hence the delighted grin at the very end!
