“NWH,” by the way is short for the Northwest Herald.
Relatively new Editor Jason Schaumburg, brought in from DeKalb, uses his valuable space on page 2 to take a pot shot at McHenry County Blog today.
He seems irritated that I didn’t read in the NWH two years ago that Hebron Village President John Jacobson was fired from his McHenry County College janitor job for using his email to view and share porn.
I first read about that in the Sunday Chicago Tribune in an article about Hebron. (Maybe a Tribune reporter found out from the NWH article.)
New to me.
Unlike McHenry County Blog, however, when referring to another publication, Schaumburg does not identify its name–just “a local blog.”
He didn’t name the “Chicago newspaper” I cited either.
He also didn’t credit McHenry County Blog for first reporting State Senator Pam Althoff’s receiving $52,900 from an Operating Engineers-Linked PAC when he mentioned it later on in his column.
That wasn’t two years back, though.
It was only eight days ago.
Good to know the NWH folks are still reading McHenry County Blog.
