Which got me thinking: Who is on the @CrainsChicago Editorial Board?
The Crain’s staff page doesn’t say. It doesn’t list an Opinions/Editorial editor/writer. Editorial Board inquiries are sent to: email@example.com. Google didn't help, either.
So I went straight to the source, asking Crain’s editors.
A Crain’s editor responded: “It’s a mix of top editors and senior reporters.”
I then asked for a list of editors/reporters who comprise the Editorial Board. I have not heard back.
What an Editorial Board is and how they make decisions is one of those things IMO.
Whether it's Sun-Times endorsing Lightfoot, Trib & Crusader endorsing Daley or Crain's endorsing Lincoln Yards, the public should know who is the driving force behind the editorial that aims to sway the public’s decision.
-Does the Board reflect the makeup of our city?
-Does the Board include members who have diverse views?
-Are the “senior reporters” on the Editorial Board the same reporters covering Lincoln Yards for Crain’s?
