Amy Jacobson out at WMAQ-TV

It looks like the other shoe has dropped: WMAQ-TV has fired reporter Amy Jacobson, for her lapse of judgment and a breach of ethics after she appeared at a pool party at the home of Craig Stebic – the husband of Lisa Stebic, who has been missing for the last two months. Video of her was captured by someone who sent the tape in to rival WBBM-TV.

Meanwhile, on WBBM’s 6 p.m. newscast, the station reported that the video had received more than 100,000 hits on its website.
