    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 are treated.

    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 news!
