Eight Forty-Eight

Eight Forty-Eight 3.1.11

Two Emanuels ended up garnering public attention during Chicago’s election season—the Mayor-elect and the anonymous fake Twitter feed, @MayorEmanuel. The man behind the tweets has now stepped forward. Columbia College journalism professor Dan Sinker joins Eight Forty-Eight to talk about the creation of @MayorEmanuel and the struggle to keep his identity a secret. And the show pays tribute to singer-songwriter Diane Izzo who died of cancer last Friday.
