El Paso, Dayton, Chicago: Media doesn't treat all gun violence the same
Fifty-nine people were shot in Chicago, including seven fatally, over the weekend in mostly poor, black neighborhoods on the city’s South and West sides.

But as the nation grieved over the mass shooting rampages in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that left 31 dead, the daily tragedy of gun violence in the nation’s third largest city – which recorded 42 homicides in the first 28 days of July – made hardly a blip with national news outlets and cable networks.

Chicago mayor calls out Ivanka Trump's 'nonsense tweets' about her city

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has had enough of Ivanka Trump’s “nonsense tweets.”
“That’s the danger of somebody with a platform and audience ... that doesn’t know what they’re talking about and getting the fundamental facts wrong that they can easily figure out if they had the decency to actually reach out to us if they wanted to be a constructive and engaged partner.”
