    Turley looks like a guy who has no core. Kinda like a bad joke. What a career choice; make covers that "Shake Things Up". Stomping on a good man's faith from the vantage point of he can "Shake Things UP". He is the guy that walks into a room and no one knows he is there...or much cares. This publication reflects more on Turley and his intolerance towards others and their most cherished feelings, rather than on Joseph and Oliver and the Church's finances.

    What a disappoint, when there could have been a more factual presentation of what comes in listed as a % for all sources and then how it is spent as a % of all sources. Business Week, has a lot of explaining to do on what they cherry pick to report, and missing the immense effort the Mormons make to providing for welfare, jobs, and subsidizing education, and economic efforts for members to have self-sufficiency which can be traced to their pioneer roots where what they didn't have they provided for themselves. I can see why the beehive is iconic in the Mormon faith, to bad that ethic wasn't even skimmed over.

    The magazine missed an opportunity to highlight how entrepreneurial spirit is key to economic stability and growth - something the church and its members have pursued since their beginnings, and caring for their needs from within the organization. Look at Utah the #2 place to do business in the United States. A state where major businesses flock to recruit Mormons! Weird, seems like another agenda is at play, sensationalism on the cover to sell magazines, but most will only see the cover. Too bad, sad commentary.

    IN the video, the author stated that the Mormon leaders were very, very gracious to her. Hmm. She didn't reciprocate, did she.

    In February, the Atlantic Wire did a Q&A with Turley and asked, “Let's be honest. Bloomberg Businessweek's gotten suprisingly edgy lately. What's up with that?”

    Answer (although not in print): If there is anything un-virtous, un-lovely, not of good report or non-praiseworthy--yup, thats's what I'm going for.
    Also if there is any one or any thing I can mock and belittle, I seek after those too.
    I wanted the covers to adequately parallel and portray the un-professional and irrelevant phony-journalism inside Businessweek.
