Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 1/24

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, the Chicago Catholic Archdiocese makes public thousands of clergy sex abuse documents. Chicago Public Schools approve seven new charter schools, despite protests from parents and the Chicago Teachers Union. Republican gubernatorial hopefuls debate the issues, but candidate Bruce Rauner is conspicuous by his absence. McDonald’s reports weaker than expected sales. And in sports, the Bulls take on former longtime teammate Luol Deng and the Cavaliers.
