Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 2/8

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: Week in Review with Eddie Arruza, the funeral of 15-year-old shooting victim Hadiya Pendleton draws national attention, with First Lady Michelle Obama, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, and senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett all expected to attend the service on the South Side. The Chicago Sun-Times reports a plea deal could be on the table for Jesse Jackson Jr., while federal investigators look into his wife Sandi’s finances. Gov. Pat Quinn delivers his fourth state of the state address, calling on lawmakers to pass pension reform. And in sports, Northwestern teams up with the Chicago Cubs to stage Wildcats sporting events at Wrigley Field.
