It's a little ironic—a contrast, let's call it—that the Chicago Tribune actually supports a regular blog by one of its leading photojournalists, while the Chicago Sun-Times no longer supports its photojournalists at all (Jim Romenesko reports that the outgoing photographers have already had their email accounts cut off). At any rate, here's Alex Garcia's requiem for his fellow warriors at what used to be the competition.
The Sun-Times might have bought some headaches to go along with being boneheaded: USA Today is reporting that the photographers' union, the Chicago Newspaper Guild, is going to file a bad-faith bargaining charge with the National Labor Relations Board.
And a taste of what that paper's readers will no longer be getting: John Kim's photo essay on Chicago detectives was part of what won a Pulitzer Prize for the Sun-Times in 2011.
