Sunday edition now largest Utah paper by circulation
We take both the Deseret News and the Tribune. Have done so for years. Each
covers stories the other doesn't. We read both to get a fuller perspective
on local and national issues and news. The Deseret News is more of a news
magazine; the Tribune is more of a traditional newspaper. We like both.
If I'm picking up a paper from the college newsstands I prefer the Tribune.
If I'm going online, I prefer the DN, mostly because of how comment forums
The DN needs to upgrade their servers and provide faster internet access and cut
back on the add- ons and pop ups.
The DN is heavily laced with propaganda. Everything has a LDS slant.
I used to check into the Trib once or twice a day, but their comment section was
beginning to become to much for me. When they endorsed Obama, I called it
quits. I haven't been back and I won't go back.
Congratulations DN. Authentic "news" papers are rare. The NY Times is a
classic example of a newspaper morphed into a PAC. The DN can be somewhat tepid
although they have improved lately. The Tribune stays true to their roots with
over compensation by being overtly left wing and they never miss an opportunity
to take a cheap shot at the LDS church at the expense of fairness.
I've watched the Tribune slit their own throat for years, as they print
strong liberal slanted and unbalanced stories. I've seen people with a
moderate perspective tire of the liberal bent, and switch to the Deseret News.
Readers would be ok with stories that report both viewpoints, but the Tribune
hasn't seen fit to provide that kind of responsible reporting. When the
writing is on the wall, you'd think they'd recognize the error of
their ways, but at some point you have to clean house and find a new crew that
can run a paper and report the news in a credible fashion. Maybe these
statistics will wake up the owners.
Liberalism's media safe houses are dying off in droves while fair and
balanced news media outlets are thriving, proving once again truth is more
interesting to most Americans than the drivel the left tries to pass off as
tabloids sell. its a simple formula to follow if you dont care about integrity I
tribune drops because of it's left leaning anti mormon theme.
