Welcome to the Chicago subwiki!
We want to keep this high quality and interesting. We want fact-based news and analysis of local events and people.
You are welcome to do original reporting, and you are also very welcome to do local fact checks (of things that local politicians or other public figures or organizations have said).
You can also write “media roundups” of stories that are being covered by the mainstream press – this is particular interesting if they are showing bias and covering the same event in different ways.
Mostly “be bold” – it’s better to post first and discuss, than to not post at all because you aren’t sure if it is appropriate!
