Chicago journalists spar on Twitter

Public radio “Sound Opinions” co-host and former Chicago Sun-Times rock critic Jim DeRogatis goes after DNAInfo Chicago — staffed with many former Sun-Times journalists — for their handling of a story that he covered earlier.

DNAInfo Chicago responded: “We wrote the story based on court documents, which ARE able to be viewed by other media outlets. See ya at the hearing!”

The testy exchange continued. In one tweet, DeRogatis told his rival: “Happy to come by your HQ and do a seminar on reporting any time, pal. And it’s Jim not Jimmy.” || More tweets from DeRogatis, and DNAInfo Chicago’s replies.
