Chicago press critic: Yes, I’m conflicted

Longtime Chicago Reader press critic Michael Miner writes: “The Reader was recently sold to Sun-Times Media, which means, if we don’t split hairs, that I’m working for the Sun-Times again. So when I slam the Tribune it’s no longer as a neutral observer. I’m now on the payroll of the Tribune’s opposition. If you tell me this doesn’t look good, I can’t disagree.”
