t’s been a controversial few weeks over at my Chicagosphere online-media byline, brought to you by the soon-out-of-beta wags at the Trib’s cool and growing ChicagoNow.

Meanwhile, watchdog blog Chicago Copwatch rarely gives the guys in blue a break. So who paints the fairer picture of Chicago’s sworn peacekeepers?
