has there ever been a study about the effectiveness of newspaper endorsements in the age of TV and the internet?
 
2012-10-19 03:31:40 PM  
wow - that was a pretty harsh but well-reasoned piece.

This isn't the paper owned by the mormon church. That is the Deseret News.
 
2012-10-19 03:40:30 PM  
The Salt Lake Tribune is owned by a media conglomerate (just like most other periodicals). Don't expect any of them to be fair or balanced.

Is this the same conglomerate media that wants a close race?

Yes but the Trib is pretty faithful to the Demographics they serve. and to say otherwise is comparable to calling the Mesa Tribune or Yuma Sun part of the Liberal Media

Wiki indicates it's run in a joint agreement by Deseret and MediaNews Group

It's the one that wants more readership by pandering to the mindless numbskulls who salivate at every mention of their chosen Lord and Savior.

AntonChigger: Why the hell is this a newsflash? This just in: The population in Utah is not entirely Mormon nor republican.


You've never been to Utah I see.

While I don't think it's a newsflash, I think Obama leading by double digits in Massachusetts and now this is a bad thing for Mitt. At one point Rmoney must have been a good Mormon, but he has strayed so far from the faith that he's like a Catholic priest who doesn't diddle little boys.

You know... That was damned well written.

Definitely worthy of a green just for the way the talking points were addressed.

Maybe not a newsflash, but definitely newsworthy, and discussion-worthy.

He poked around in some other threads today. After some initial bites, he had to fall back on slut-shaming and thinly-veiled racism to get any traction. It's only a matter of time before he has to fall back on breastfeeding and circumcision to get any bites.

It says a lot when the biggest paper of the most Republican state in the country endorses a Democrat.

It's amazing that after so many years, so many thousands of journalists are still complicit on the media conspiracy. You'd think that one of them would write a thrilling article on how their messages are ordered down from big media conglomerates to their sinister colleagues who then spend hours crafting well-reasoned op-eds and deeply researched exposes on topics of public interest.

What makes you think it was sarcasm? Seriously, I'd love to read who decides what opinions to push, when is the best time of the news cycle, where distribute the propaganda for maximum impact, why they've managed to keep it so clandestine, and how.

It's a traditional potato and corn flake dish that Mormons will serve at funerals. I'm guessing it's probably officially called something else, but I know them as funeral potatoes

What's the message? Are you saying that media conglomerates are disinclined to support Republicans because Republicans are bad for business?
