Better than Carol Marin w/Hamos and Murphy: Berkowitz w/possible Guv candidate Dan Proft; Cable and Streaming

Jeff Berkowitz: You’re not embarrassed at all by ..Jim Kimberly [Chicago Tribune] said $500,000 …almost $600,000 that you were getting [annually from Cicero], from the high school…from, …and then there is a $400,000 line item for in-house [PR]. For the size of this Village, it sounds enormous…I’m nor saying it is shady, but it looks shady. [watch the show with Dan Proft].

Dan Proft [Possible 2010 Republican candidate for Governor]: No, it doesn’t look shady.

Jeff Berkowitz: It doesn’t?

Dan Proft: No, it does not look shady.

Jeff Berkowitz: I mean, Carol Marin [WTTW, Sun-Times and NBC Chicago] writes about it.

Dan Proft: Well, Carol Marin makes it look shady because she has an axe to grind.

Jeff Berkowitz: What’s her axe to grind?

Dan Proft: She is a liberal Democrat. She is somebody who has written the same story about Cicero for twenty years. She is not about to change her storyline.

Jeff Berkowitz: Well, then some would say Cicero is not about to change—

Dan Proft: Except Cicero has changed.
Dan Proft: …[Carol Marin] has no concern for the facts, she is the one who is unethical by the way she chooses to disregard facts that are inconvenient to a storyline she has set.
Dan Proft: I am not going to be a pin cushion to the liberal media in this town.
