For Salt Lake Political Junkies
If you're a political junkie, you may have been disappointed by the Sunday newspapers' coverage of the Salt Lake County Democratic Convention. They barely mentioned the actual convention. Here are the headlines. Deseret News: Demos Approve Wage Initiative- This story spent its time talking about the wage initiative and was sure to mention that someone named Kent Anderson thinks the LDS Church should back it. In the final paragraph, a token mention was made of one of the new party officers. Salt Lake Tribune: Yocom is Almost Ready to Rest- Obviously, this story obsessed over Yocom, but completely ignored the Deseret News' angle of the wage initiative. Perhaps we were supposed to read both papers, because the Deseret News completely ignored Yocom's retirement announcement. The Tribune did give a more comprehensive look at the new party leadership. The best coverage I've seen for the convention is in the blogosphere. Go to Brian's wrap- up of the day.
