Tribune Co. subpoenaed

Federal authorities have subpoenaed Tribune Co. records in its widening corruption investigation of Illinois Gov. Rod Blogajevich. The governor allegedly tried to pressure the company to fire Chicago Tribune editorial writers in exchange for state help in selling Wrigley Field. From Chicago Breaking News:
"As we've said before, we will fully cooperate with the government in its investigation into Gov. Blagojevich and his administration," said Gary Weitman, Tribune Co. spokesman. "As this is an ongoing criminal investigation, we will have to decline further comment."
The story notes that Tribune owner Sam Zell, spoke to CNBC yesterday, refuses to talk to his own paper.
