Patti Blagojevich Does Not Like Sam Zell

The trial of corrupt former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich is underway and some fascinating evidence is starting to come out in the trial. The above audio is Blagojevih’s wife Patti cussing out Tribune Company owner Sam Zell for allowing the Chicago Tribune’s editorial board to write nasty things about her husband.

She later goes on to suggest approaching Zell to get him to fire the Tribune’s editorial board.

“Just fire ‘em … What would … William Randolph Hearst do, say, oh, I can’t interfere with my editorial board? … They’re hurting (the Tribune Company’s) business.”

The editors in question were never fired. Never thought we’d be siding with Sam Zell on anything, but we definitely have his back on this one.
