An important reminder

The T Dog Media Blog usually doesn’t endorse programming from the cable news networks, but this is an important special: On CNN, Anderson Cooper: 360 will focus on youth violence in Chicago, including the murder of 16-year old Blair Holt, who was among five people shot on a CTA bus on May 10. The crime shocked Chicago and made national headlines.

This comes as many cities, including Philadelphia, Minneapolis, and Milwaukee are experiencing surges in youth-related violence this year.

The report, entitled 24 Hours in Chicago, will air tonight at 9 p.m. (CT) on CNN.
