Newspaper Rap

SLC's two local dailies are more anemic than ever

Best of You-tah

Our giant 25th Best of Utah issue proves that print is not dead

By John Saltas
POSTED // Mar 26,2014 - I’m told this is our 25th year of publishing Best of Utah, but who knows? Could be. I remember about 10 years ago, we celebrated our 15th year of Best Of, only to learn that thanks to a typo on a masthead date, we were actually only 14, not 15. We didn’t tell anyone and celebrated 15 again the next year, no worse for the wear.

Utah's Legislature is akin to cockfighting

By John Saltas
POSTED // Mar 12,2014 - It used to be that my favorite time of year for this newspaper—not for me personally—was the wondrous six- or seven-week period that comprised Utah’s annual legislative session. It was always a heyday of wackiness.

By John Saltas

Too bad smartphones weren't around a few decades ago

By John Saltas
POSTED // Dec 4,2013 - It’s just my luck to be an old fogey in the dawn of the social-media age. I have a smartphone.

Chaos Theory

Peterson, Swallow, Kennedy and the Beatles

By John Saltas
POSTED // Nov 27,2013 - One of the best reasons to run a newspaper is that you, on occasion, get to rewrite history to your own liking. Not that we do that; it’s just an option. But I will today.

Clowns Aplenty

Washington phonies pretend they're saving America, but they're destroying it

By John Saltas
POSTED // Oct 16,2013 - When it comes to understanding the ongoing federal government shutdown and impending failure to raise the government debt ceiling, I’m as dumb as the next guy.

Something's Rotten

Lawmakers are in it only for themselves—and it's all thanks to us

By John Saltas
POSTED // Oct 2,2013 - By a slight majority, most Americans are not in favor of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). While some polls show areas of distinct and large support for the bill that allows Americans to make informed choices regarding their own health care, there are other parts of America, or peoples of America, who believe the ACA is nothing short of the devil’s doing.
