Getting a foot in the door is the first step toward censoring the free and independent voice of the Tribune. The LDS Church will stop at nothing to control the free press in Utah.

"The LDS Church will stop at nothing to control the free press in Utah."

Let me point out why I think your are wrong.

1) Many subscribers to the Tribune are LDS. If the LDS really wanted to control the press, they would ask their members to suscribe to the Deseret News only.

2) If the LDS church really cared about the press, they would pour more money into it. They wouldn't have laid off 1/3 of the Deseret News staff a few years ago. I am sure the lay offs did not help the paper.

3) If they really cared, your comment would not even be present on this board.

I think your are over reaching a little bit. It seems to me sometimes people like to make the LDS church out to be the bad guy, even if their accusations are not true.

When emotion and paranoia prevail, nonsense blather is common. The real reason is probably financial. The Tribune reducing their staff by 20% means that something is changing.

At least in Salt Lake City there are two, roughly equal, papers with somewhat different opinions. In some cities there is only one paper and no "diversity". I went on the Tribune site like this one, read some of the posts, and thought I'd logged onto the San Francisco Chronicle. I saw more diversity from the posters on DN than I did on the Trib.
