The Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Magazine named Chicago News Bench one of Chicago's best blogs in 2008. (It was called "Rogers Park Bench" at the time.)

"[Chicago News Bench] opines on Rogers Park and the 49th Ward in his fiery blog, His mix of cynicism and skepticism targets public figures such as Mayor Daley and Alderman Joe Moore." ~ The List: The best the Web has to offer Chicago, Chicago Magazine, Feb 2008

"Great example of hyperlocal news coverage" ~ Mark Josephson, CEO,

"The Bench is a terrific blog, covering issues from the national to the regional and very local (Rogers Park), and is a thumping good read." ~ Chicago Bungalow

Exclusive Video: Schakowsky Denies Lesbian Affair

A former FBI employee says that Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-Illinois) was blackmailed by a female Turkish spy. In the exlusive video below, Schakowsky told Chicago News Bench today that the allegations are "total fantasy." We at Chicago News Bench, by the way, like to call this type of thing "lebionage." (Also See: "The (Attempted) Blackmailing of Jan Schakowsky" and "Dangerous OFA Townhall Healthcare Meeting.")
