Chicago Tribune Cover Vs. Sun-Times Cover After the World Series

This is an eye-opening piece about how the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times covered the Chicago Cubs’ World Series win.

Recently, the Chicago Cubs finally won the World Series after 108 years! It was an amazing time for Cubs fans and the team alike. But what has tongues wagging at PetaPixel is the way in which the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times covered the Chicago Cubs’ World Series win. In 2013, the Sun-Times laid off all its photographers and sent a training memo to its reporters to teach them how to take pictures with their iPhones. In contrast, the Tribune still employs proper staff photojournalists. And it shows.

The Tribune’s front-page image was excellent, whilst the Sun-Times’ image was mediocre and forgettable. Brian Cassella is the Tribune photojournalist who caught the iconic picture that accompanied the story. It’s clear that trained photojournalists are much better at capturing fantastic images than journalists with iPhones

Back in June 2013, the same discussion erupted after Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup Finals:
