SHARE It may be raining outside, but newsrooms are burning up

News that Gov. Blagojevich has been arrested set the media world on fire today. It’s the top story pretty much everywhere you look. The Chicago Tribune (and their army of web developers) even created a special page to track the coverage across the internet. The Sun-Times and the Tribune are both planning special editions to be available this afternoon. Here’s a shot that Ben Calhoun took of the swarm at Patrick Fitzgerald’s press conference:

Members of our Flickr group have also been spontaneously adding photos of the Gov to our pool.
