Mayor of Rolling Meadows: “Daily Herald is covering up public corruption”

Marty Watters, Investigative reporter

Rolling Meadows Mayor Joe Gallo is calling out the Daily Herald for covering up a public corruption scandal involving United Airlines.

For over a year, Gallo has been gathering evidence, talking to eye witnesses and reviewng court documents, and he has concluded that it is an undeniable fact that United Airlines illegally dumped asbestos next to a children's playground in his town.

Gallo then brought his findings to the Daily Herald, knowing that the newspaper's editors were provided the same proof that he had. Then something truly astonishing happened.

The newspaper was not interested in informing the public about this toxic health hazard.

In fact, Herald reporter Chris Placek admitted to the mayor that he knew the asbestos dumping claims were true, but he then proceeded to try to negotiate for the mayor's silence on the matter.

Placek told the mayor that it was not his decision, and that his bosses would not publish an article about United's crimes or expose the public corruption of key government officials who covered them up.

However, Placek did throw out what he thought would be a good compromise - the Herald would consider publishing a generic article expressing the mayor's concerns about the dangers of asbestos without mentioning what United did in Rolling Meadows.

This was unacceptable to Mayor Gallo and he quickly pointed out to Placek that the Daily Herald was actively covering up public corruption.

Placek did not disagree. And the incredibly bizarre "negotiation" ended there.

By Placek's own admission, the editors at the Herald are complicit in the covering up of corporate crimes and public corruption in Illinois.

Placek's boss, Senior Vice President/Editor John Lampinen, was contacted for comment via phone messages and emails, but he has not replied.

The real question now is: Who is pulling the strings of the editors at the "fake news" Daily Herald?

More to come…
