http://democracynow.org - Utah State Senator Jim Dabakis is part of a group of people seeking to buy The Salt Lake Tribune in order to prevent the Mormon Church from taking control of the major independent newspaper. "For many years, since the ‘50s, The Salt Lake Tribune has been the big, independent, progressive voice and the Mormon Church had the Deseret News," Dabakis says. "We’re in the position now where it looks like The Salt Lake Tribune will be a daily or once-a-week supplement inside the [Deseret News] without an independent voice, and there will be one voice in our community, and it will be the voice of the Mormon Church." Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs weekdays on nearly 1,400 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday. Watch our livestream 8-9AM ...
The Salt Lake Tribune puts Utah's 0.05 DUI bill to the test. How much can someone drink and still be legal? And can police tell when someone is over the 0.05 limit? We have six people drinking whiskey, wine and beer, then taking field sobriety tests and breathalyzer tests to see when they are impaired and when they pass the 0.05 limit under legislation now on Gov. Gary Herbert's desk.

Left tackle Garett Bolles came in with a lot of hype, and two-thirds of the way through the season, he's living up to it. Pro Football Focus College graded Bolles the best run-blocking tackle in the country, and he was a key piece in helping Joe Williams rush for 332 yards against UCLA.

Published on Jun 1, 2014 SALT LAKE CITY - Employees of the Salt Lake Tribune received an anonymous note indicating that the hedge fund which owned their enterprise had revised the existing joint operating agreement to the Tribune's reporting competitor, The Deseret News. Despite having years of greater circulation, the Tribune is revising their business plans to reflect the new media marketplace and the 21st century economic realities many American newspapers face. What is perceived to be uniquely predatory in the deal made by the owners of the Deseret News (a wholly-owned media asset of the Mormon Church) and the Tribune's owners, is a clause giving the Deseret News (thus the Mormon Church) the ability to approve any subsequent ownership or purchasers of the non-Mormon Tribune. This vi...
