    Is there anywhere in the article that indicates that the Deseret News is a partner with Sundance? No. The paper is doing an article on one of the most respected film festivals in the world. An event that brings thousands of people and millions of dollars to the state.

    And is everyone in Hollywood a sexual predator because of the well publicized actions of a minority of the people who work in that field? If so, shouldn't the Deseret News be ways for the public to protect themselves from cops, firefighters, politicians, priests and bishops just to mention a few? If there is a financial expose it will show that Sundance is a revenue positive venture when it comes to the tax dollars spend to promote it.

    Sundance is a positive event and shines a positive light on the state of Utah.

    Really? The Deseret News is a partner with Sundance, after all we've seen coming out of Hollywood? The news should be covering ways for the public to protect themselves from these predators! And exposing how many tax dollars are going to subsidize the corruption. I think the Deseret News needs to rethink who they are in bed with.
