Video: Behind the scene of the Blagojevich verdict
Yesterday, weeks of tedium and speculation came to an end when the jury in the Blagojevich trial returned their verdict. To give you a behind the scenes look at the media circus that ensued, I tagged along with WBEZ reporter Tony Arnold to the lobby of the Dirksen Federal Courthouse. This is part of our occasional video series, The City Room. I tried to capture all the important moments with an eye toward documenting the scene and what it felt like to be there, not just what was said by the news-makers. Check out the video I put together- I think it's one part 24 episode, one part cell phone ad and one part claustrophobic panic attack.
