Dirty Dining: Chicago Sub

Chicago Sub on 37th and Burleigh is not a sponsor of any Journal Broadcast Group stations.

TMJ4's Courtny Gerrish wouldn't have targeted the place for Thursday's "Dirty Dining" segment if advertising dollars were involved.

You can be sure that no money is on the line. Chicago Sub won't threaten to pull out as a sponsor.

That's what bugs me about "Dirty Dining," this alleged "NEWS" feature. Journal Broadcast Group sponsors are protected.

Being a sponsor shouldn't impact what TMJ4 covers as "NEWS," but it does.

That's why the Brookfield Perkins with several health inspection violations was granted the special treatment it received.

That's wrong. I don't think TMJ4 should be selling favors.
