Deseret News Fact Checker

I've seen this too often to not say something Today in the Deseret News, political editor Bob Bernick talked about the Governor's idea to phase out corporate income tax. He described the cut like this: "a repeal that by 2012 would be costing Utah public schools more than $200 million a year." Interesting comment, but FALSE. The education budget recieves some money from that source, but a phase out of the source does not necessarily equal a public school budget cut of $200 million. Unfortunately, he's not the first journalist to bat that ball of yarn.
