After nine days of deliberating, the jury at the Blagojevich retrial found the former Governor guilty on 17 of 20 counts.

The end of June not only signaled the end of the fiscal year, but also time for Eight Forty-Eight to review the stories that hit the headlines over the past month. The Blagojevich verdict, no surprise, trumped all other news at the end of the month, but there were plenty of other talking points - from plans for more casinos to fights over Planned Parenthood.

To sort out all the news that was Eight Forty-Eight was by Natasha Korecki of Chicago Sun Times, Justin Kaufmann of WBEZ and Lenny McAllister of WVON to dissect the stories that hit the news. The panelists began by addressing June's big stories and separating those that were covered too much from those which may have slipped under the radar.
