Former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel Has A New Gig In Journalism

Former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a new job. Not in politics -- in journalism. He’s officially a national contributor at ABC News and contributing editor at The Atlantic in Washington, D.C. He wrote a column for the magazine Tuesday titled, “It’s Time To Hold American Elites Accountable for Their Abuses.” 

Both local and national journalists called out the article for contradicting his legacy as mayor. WBEZ’s Greta Johnsen spoke with Curtis Lawrence, an associate professor of journalism at Columbia College Chicago.
