Let’s see how strenuously Peoria media devoted itself to covering news out of Peoria, shall we? I notice not one crime story that wasn’t on the Web yesterday.
- Cold Case: Thanksgiving bittersweet for family of Monterrius Dillard on fourth anniversary of his death (PJS): Lots of touchy-feely in this story, not a lot of details to jog anyone’s memories of the shooting.
- Word on the Street: Council back at full strength (PJS): A fairly informative report, but it is still, essentially, week old news designed from the get-go to fill Monday’s news hole.
- Christmas Fund: Peoria grandmother of 60 faces mounting medical bills and impending surgery (PJS): Nothing fills a Monday news hole like a story promoting the PJS’s favorite charity.
