The Week in Review’s Annual Year in Review

On this special edition of Chicago Tonight: Week in Review, we take a look back at 2012 with Joel Weisman. It was a year of hard-fought election battles, Sen. Mark Kirk’s stroke, the teachers’ strike, a huge police shakeup, the NATO summit, former Gov. Rod Blagojevich reporting to jail, Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.’s woes, Congressman Bill Beavers’ corruption case, Former Mayor Richard M. Daley’s nephew’s indictment, Drew Peterson being convicted of murdering his third wife, concealed carry possibly coming, and the slowly recovering economy. And in sports, Derrick Rose is sidelined, the Bears buckle, the Blackhawks are locked out, and the Sox and Cubs collapse. All that, and much more in The Week in Review’s Annual Year in Review.
