Enough About Amy Jacobson

She is a fine individual!

All I have been hearing is vicious stories about Amy previously from NBC5 in Chi-town, and I am tired of it. She is a great reporter, and so is her father. All of you reporters right now, just want to get a “HOT” story that means nothing to 75% of everyone from the city and from NWI.

She was doing her job, and that’s it.

I read a column from Richard Roeper today, and I am going to quote him, because his words says it all:

Let’s see. A well-known and well-respected reporter who has been covering a high-profile case involving a missing woman and her estranged husband is seen on her day off at the couple’s home while the husband is there. She seems comfortable and relaxed as she works the cell phone and watches the kids.

Uh, yeah. That’s news. That’s why the Sun-Times and Tribune had major media columns about the issue on Tuesday. That’s why it was Topic No. 1 on the local talk radio dial. That’s why it was a story on news stations across the country.

Among the headlines from blog-land:

Pool Party!

The Worst Career Move Ever

Reporter hard at work in a bikini

One would love to hear Lisa Stebic’s take on all this. One hopes and prays she’s still alive to provide that take.

Leave Amy alone, and worry about the real story! Where is Lisa?
