So the Chicago Sun-Times editors decided to have Trey Ferro, son of the newspaper’s owner Michael Ferro, as the “game face” for an edition. How classy, genuine, meritocratic and not at all pandering to nepotism! The Ferro family attended a Chicago Cubs home game and the photo above was taken with Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts up in the Wrigley Field scoreboard. Awwwww, what a cute power couple they make!
Maybe it’s not the editors of the Sun-Times who are to blame for “the Bright One” looking like a family newsletter or a family photo share on a Facebook page? (Funny, I thought it was actually a big city high circulation newspaper?) Maybe it’s the S-T chairman himself who is responsible for this embarrassment on numerous levels?
