    Former Chicago reporter Amy Jacobson goes, as the Chicago Tribune puts it, from swimsuit to lawsuit.

    wtf was that?

    reads for several graphs like a straight news story, then all of a sudden it turns into a column, then right back to a news story

    I'm not sure I understand the thought behind referencing a TV show as part of one's supporting evidence:

    "Jacobson's lawsuit cites an episode of NBC's "Law & Order" in which Lara Flynn Boyle played an ambitious reporter having an affair with a murder suspect"

    Why not throw in a Charlie's Angels or Police Woman example as well?
  6. Because Law & Order is ripped from the headlines and she's trying to say the publicity surrounding her case is so bad that she was the inspiration for that episode.

    That said, I think she's going to lose and lose big.

    She's taking a shot.

    Would guess her lawyer(s) are working on the come.
