Republican National Convention According to Greg Hinz…

According to Crain’s Greg Hinz, at Republican conventions, Illinois media are in the hotel with Illinois delegates and are invited to just about everything that the delegation is invited to. That means they can do their jobs, which he’d respectfully suggest is important to you all in this corrupt ol’ state.

But at the Democratic convention, thanks to Speaker Madigan, there has been no room for the media at the inn that the Illinois delegates stay at — ever, no matter how big or small the city is. In Charlotte, that means reporters spend as long as an hour-and-a-half to commute in to cover the 7 a.m. Illinois delegation breakfast.

The IL Republicans’ list of sponsors was on a big board by the registration table. But the IL Democrats are hiding it — at least until a time when public interest is lower. Shame on them.
