Note that I didn’t say it was a positive news story. Rahm Emanuel was asked by NBC Chicago reporter Mary Ann Ahern whether he was going to be sending his children to public school in Chicago or a private school. There’s a bit more to this story, and you can read what the reporter had to say here, but my gut says that had the question just been answered, it would have at most been a local/regional story, but nope losing your temper makes it national.
Maybe Rahm felt like being on the national news today. If that was his goal, he succeeded. For everyone else, don’t get mad at reporters, remember, they buy ink by the barrel.
