Video moment: Chicago paper wins Wrigley video contest

So there are these two newspapers in Chicago. There's the big guy, the Chicago Tribune, and the little guy, the Chicago Sun-Times. Let me get this out of the way right away, the Baltimore Sun and the Chicago Tribune are owned by the same company, The Tribune Co.

The Tribune Co. owns a bunch of other stuff, like newspapers and TV stations and also the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field. So the new boss of The Tribune Co., Sam Zell, wants to unload the Cubs and part of his plan is to sell the naming rights to Wrigley. For serious reasons I won't go into here -- I've already written a column on the topic -- I think that's an okay idea.

But the Sun-Times, perhaps looking to stick it to the Tribune, ran a contest where it invited folks to make music videos imploring Zell not to sell the ballpark naming rights. So who wins the contest? An intern at the Chicago Tribune. Gotcha! The Sun-Times was a good sport about it.

Below is the Tribine's video and here's a link to all the top entrants. (Warning on the link, it's a little slow because it has a lot of video stuff in it).
