An actual unretouched headline, lede and screencap from Lake County newspaper of record, the Chicago Tribune:
The McLaughlin campaign has received word that multiple complaints have been filed against lobbyist Dan McConchie, candidate for State Senate, for breaking election laws and illegally coordinating campaign activities with special interest PACs and political nonprofit organizations.

Your LakeCountyEye contacted one legal expert, who was all like: "I'd tell them, if they can't sue the Tribune for libel, at least try suing the Internet Archive."
