Phone: 815-409-5881  Native New Yorker Joseph Hosey has been a reporter in the Chicago area since 1999. He was out in front of every major development in the Drew Peterson case. Hosey authored a book about the Peterson case, Fatal Vows: The Tragic Wives of Sergeant Drew Peterson, which was made into a record-setting Lifetime movie. Hosey is married to Janet Hosey. He has two daughters: Gracie and Elyse. My Beliefs At Patch, we promise always to report the facts as objectively as possible and otherwise adhere to the principles of good journalism. We also acknowledge that true impartiality is impossible because human beings have beliefs. In the spirit of simple honesty, we encourage editors to reveal their beliefs to the extent they feel comfortable. This disclosure is not a license to inject our beliefs into stories or dictate coverage according to them. Rather, we hope the knowledge our beliefs are on the record will cause us to be ever mindful to write, report and edit in a fair and balanced manner. If you ever see evidence we failed in this mission, please let us know. Politics I was a registered Democrat when I lived in New York, but since I left there I have not registered with a party. It's not required to do so to vote in a primary in Illinois. Religion I am a Roman Catholic and devout Mets fan.
