oneutah.org has posted the full text of Mayor Anderson's November statement about how the Deseret News is out to get him, etc. etc. It's not a very interesting read, but it's worthwhile if you follow SLC politics. I'm sure 99% of politicians and celebrities feel they have a case for writing an identical document. The fact that he actually wrote one leads me to agree with Charley Foster's assesment that the Mayor's relationship with the media is Nixonian. There is one point of the paper I'd correct if I were the Mayors Comm. Dir. He accuses the News of writing a “The-mayor-denies-still-beating-his-wife” headline when they reported “LDS Church not Taliban, Rocky says.”. The Mayor has to remember that the Deseret News article he cites is not the first we knew of his Kafka/Taliban comment. It spread like wildfire the day it was published. His comment had two days to bang around before it hit the papers. By the time the newspapers could react to the statement, it was already widely believed the Mayor had compared the Mormon Church to the Taliban. So I don't see the problem with the Deseret News headline.
