While I agree with the article, it still has the feel that they are making excuses for the KSL 10:00 news which lost it's dominant hold at that spot to KUTV Channel 2 at 10:00. Channel 2 has been the top 10:00 newscast for over a year after KSL held that spot forever. As a 44-year old white, married, Mormon (for demographic purposes only), I read the DesNews a few times a day, watch Fox 13 at 9:00 since it comes on earlier, and watch KJZZ and CW30 starting at 10:00 for The Office, Simpsons, Rules of Engagement. Since I am a man, I can't watch just one show at once.

To "jace1012" they have live streaming of their news broadcasts, they are hard to dig up on their site, but they are available live.

To "On the other hand" you realize that KSL TV, Radio, and the Deseret News are all owned by the LDS church, and that would explain why they write pro-LDS articles.


I actually read both the DesNews and SLTrib on a daily basis. Went I want "soft" news and most of the headlines, I will go to the DesNews. But when I want "all" of the news, I go to the SLTrib. I find it interesting the stories the DesNews leaves out of their paper. To get a true feeling of what is going on in Utah, I feel I need to read both.

dalefarr hit the nail on the head. The numbers contained in this story are so wildly off the mark it's ludicrous. I personally do get most of my news from ksl, but I will also tell you there is absolutely no way the desnews is outperforming the tribune in any measure. The desnews website makes it impossible to find content, and when you do the stories tend to completely miss the mark. Sigh. I guess this is what happens when you buy the ink - you control the message and the statistics.

Take away the hits for KSL Classifieds, and what do you have?
