Brother, can you spare a reporter?

The Chicago Sun-Times does have reporters to spare when it puts its mind to it -- today eight of them covered the long-awaited Burge torture report.

As we've stated several times here, the Sun-Times has had zero reporters to spare to cover a potentially larger story -- the possible fraudulent exoneration of Anthony Porter, the man whose case launched the Illinois death penalty moratorium.

Across the newsrooms in Chicago, where they absolutely love a story where a cop or prosecutor may have crossed the line, there is much sadness because the report falls far short of some of the previous hype those same reporters helped fuel.
