The comments-section erupted on this blog after the forum(here). Some folks thought the featured citizens were "plants" by Vi Daley's campaign. 848's producer, Aurora Aguilar, was kind enough to respond promptly. She wrote,
"(We) chose those interviewed simply by walking the streets of Lincoln Park and Old Town and asking random residents and business owners whether they would allow us to record their comments. The goal was to capture a variety of perspectives. I'm sorry if any of your readers felt there was a bias. Feel free to encourage them or anyone you know who might have comments or concerns about the forum to write to us at aaguilar (at) chicagopublicradio (dot) org."Finally, if you missed the WBEZ forum, the audio is now available for download at 848's website, here.
Sincere thanks again to Aurora for the prompt response.
