Blagojevich the Independent

Blagojevich the independent? Well, if one only read the headlines or photo captions,  that might be a good guess. The Chicago Tribune’s web story http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-rod-blagojevich-1209,0,7997804.story listed Blagojevich’s name a half dozen or so times before noting that he was a Democrat. The very first mention of former Governor Ryan merited noting that Ryan was a Republican, a ” disgraced, scandal-tainted Republican” to quote exactly.

The Tribune was hardly alone in down playing the party tie-in, it’s story was simply available as an example.
