Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 9/12

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: Week in Review with Joel Weisman, a raucous first debate between Gov. Pat Quinn and Bruce Rauner turns nasty. Aldermen move to eliminate their own limited inspector general and replace him with the city’s inspector general Joe Ferguson, but the plan faces an uphill battle. The NFL runs a reverse on the Ray Rice wife abuse controversy as the commissioner is under intense scrutiny. And the Bears seek redemption against the 49ers after Jay Cutler falters and some key starters are injured.
