Did RedEye Rip Off a Chicago Reader Cover?

Reader media critic Michael Miner points out the striking similarity between a cover RedEye ran yesterday and one the Reader ran less than a month ago. But RedEye's editor claims no one from his paper ever saw the alt-weekly's April 9 issue. "As for the design, I had not seen that issue of The Reader, nor had my staff," Tran Ha says. "I mean, it was a story about parking meters - and some parking meters say 'fail' when they don't work."
