GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Justice Michael Burke announced his candidacy for the Illinois Supreme Court’s vacant 3rd District seat this morning, accompanied by DuPage County public officials Former Supreme Court Justice Bob Thomas, DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick, and DuPage County State’s Attorney Bob Berlin endorsing his candidacy. The 50+ attendees at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton included Janice Anderson, Louis Aranda, Joe Birkett, Niki Conforti, Dan Cronin, John Dabrowski, Pete DiCianni, Tim Elloitt, Daniel Guerin, Gwen Henry, Paul Hinds, Bill Hogan, Chris Kachiroubas, James McCluskey, John Millner, Kenneth Popejoy, Nicole Prater, Donald Puchalski, Dennis Reboletti, Mike Reidy, Kenton Skarin, Rick Veenstra, Ann Celine Walsh, Deanna Wilkins, and Jim Zay. The campaign website is at https://www.justicemikeburke.com/ Endorsements are at https://www.justicemikeburke.com/endorsements – Dave Diersen
http://gopillinopis.com
(FROM THE BURKE CAMPAIGN: Justice Burke released the following statement accompanying his announcement: “It is an immense honor to be able to run for the highest court in our state. I’ve been honored to serve in the criminal justice system for my whole life, as a prosecutor and as a judge at all levels of our state’s judiciary. I am humbly asking for your vote to continue my service to our state.” Justice Burke was accompanied by other public officials who have endorsed his candidacy. Quotes from leaders who stood with Justice Burke today: Former Supreme Court Justice Bob Thomas: “The Supreme Court was wise to appoint Justice Burke to Illinois’s highest court, and voters will be wise to elect him in the 3rd District. Justice Burke has represented the seat I once held with honor and integrity, and his commitment to justice is total. I’m proud to endorse his candidacy for the 3rd District seat.” DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick: “Justice Burke has spent his entire career in public service, and his record on law enforcement is impeccable. He has consistently sought justice as a prosecutor and a judge, and he will continue to do so on the Supreme Court.” DuPage County State’s Attorney Bob Berlin: “When electing a Supreme Court Justice, it’s important that we have someone who is independent, honest and committed to justice. No one embodies that more than Justice Michael Burke. He will represent the 3rd District with all of those values every day as our Supreme Court Justice.)

— Justice Michael Burke announces Ill. Sup. Ct. run – Rick Koshko
https://1430wcmy.com/2021/09/27/justice-michael-burke-announces-ill-sup-ct-run/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois Supreme Court Justice Michael Burke is running for election as a Republican. He’s serving from the current 2nd Judicial District. A new district map will be in effect when the next term starts, so if he’s elected Burke will be in the newly drawn 3rd District that covers LaSalle, Bureau, and Grundy counties plus DuPage County where he’s from. Burke joined the state’s highest court last year when Robert Thomas retired. He announced his candidacy today, just three days after Gov. Pritzker signed the bill into law to create the new legislative and judicial districts that’ll be in effect for the 2022 elections. It’s the first redraw of the Illinois judicial districts in nearly 60 years. According to the 72-year old Burke’s campaign web site, people endorsing him for election include St. Sen. Sue Rezin, Illinois House members Tom Demmer and David Welter, former LaSalle County Sheriff Tom Templeton, Grundy County State’s Attorney Jason Helland, and former Illinois Attorney General Jim Ryan. If he wins the 2022 elections, Burke would have a ten-year term toward the end of which he would be up for a retention vote if he wants to keep the job. The ballots in 2032 would ask voters if he should remain a Supreme Court Justice. But the 2022 ballots will ask voters to choose from Burke and other candidates if others run. Justice Michael Burke is not related to Ill. Sup. Ct. Chief Justice Anne Burke.)

TECH CRUNCH
— News aggregator SmartNews raises $230 million, valuing its business at $2 billion – Sarah Perez
(COMMENT: GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters are free of charge and they contain no advertising.)
https://techcrunch.com/2021/09/15/news-aggregator-smartnews-raises-230-million-valuing-its-business-at-2-billion/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Founded in 2012 in Japan, the company launched to the U.S. in 2014 and expanded its local news footprint early last year. While the app’s content team includes former journalists, machine learning is used to pick which articles are shown to readers to personalize their experience. However, one of the app’s key differentiators is how it works to pop users’ “filter bubbles” through its “News From All Sides” feature, which allows its users to access news from across a range of political perspectives. . .The aggregator’s business model is largely focused on advertising, as the company has said before that 85-90% of Americans aren’t paying to subscribe to news. But SmartNews’ belief is that these news consumers still have a right to access quality information. In total, SmartNews has relationships with more than 3,000 global publishing partners whose content is available through its service on the web and mobile devices. To generate revenue, the company sells inline ads and video ads, where revenue is shared with publishers. Over 75% of its publishing partners also take advantage of its “SmartView” feature. This is the app’s quick-reading mode, an alternative to something like Google AMP. Here, users can quickly load an article to read, even if they’re offline. The company promises publishers that these mobile-friendly stories, which are marked with a lightning bolt icon in the app, deliver higher engagement — and its algorithm rewards that type of content, bringing them more readers. Among SmartView partners are well-known brands like USA Today, ABC, HuffPost and others. Currently, over 70% of all SmartNews’ pageviews are coming from SmartView first.)
