memo to: CHICAGO'S tv stations
re: two program types
chicago safe programming
and traditional violence REPORTING
differ from each other.
traditional violence reporting
stresses crime stories and violence
reduction developments at city hall.
IT'S ThE NEWs!
it's the daily updates
on chicago's VIOLENCE and
the city's efforts to reduce it.
CHICAGO SAFE programming
Is about safety.
it consists of Chicago's deliberations
and drive to make itself safe.
there's no real conflict between
these two PROGRAMMING types.
They can CO-EXIST AND
COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER.
NEWS REPORTERS can expose
ABUSES OF CHICAGO SAFE deliberations,
THEREBY SUSTAINING THEIR INTEGRITY.
AND UPDATES ON chicago safe
proceedings and oUTCOMES can be
REGULAR STORIES ON TV news.
