Chicago Tribune messes up twice in a week on "gangster" photos

Bloggers often get dismissed by mainstream media outlets for "not checking facts." Twice in the last two days, the Chicago Tribune published photos of"reputed" mobsters. In fact, they were "reputed photos of reputed mobsters."

The photos the Trib published were not in fact, those mobsters. Oops. One of the men pictured, a Park Ridge, IL businessman with the same name as a notorious Chicago mobster, is suing the Tribune.
