Gloating? Des News, you are above that.......

I believe the Tribune relied too heavily on enough people sharing its highly, liberal slant. If it fails, it fails. Such is the world of business, and a newspaper is, after all, a business.

Perhaps if the Tribune got away from its leftist agenda it might be worth reading.

The problem is not with the reporters, but with the editorial and management staff.

The Deseret News is better, but not much.

It isn't about "leftist" views. The DesNews has also gone through this. In fact, several staffers from this paper went over to the Trib. It is a changing world. From my perspective, this paper has done a far better job on its website than the Trib, which makes a big difference in attracting readers and clicks.

@my slc: I didn't pick up on gloating as much as 'by the numbers, this is why we're all having a problem'. I think many staffers help both newspapers in some way, and the pain is shared.

To topic: If any region needs two outlets for news and local opinion, it's the Salt Lake area. We still have two distinctions that people see themselves in and to lose one of the outlets that 'handles' some of those views would probably be a real problem in civic relations.

I tried building an account to comment on the SLTrib stories but ran into problems. They don't have an account system like Deseret News, and they might consider it. Seems a little smoother. Also, for both the Tribune and Deseret News, might it be a worthy idea to have some article providers respond to comments? That would make the process a little more engaging and could bring more readership to both on the online side. Thus more eyes for the advertisements as well.
