Staffbox | Who would you rather have as your owner: Trib publisher Dean Singleton or the LDS Church?

Cesar Guzman: Dean Singleton was my boss. Tell you what … I’d rather have Dean Singleton.

Jamie Gadette: Uhh—neither? If pressed, I’d go with the church. They’ve got a fierce choir.

Susan Kruithof: That’s like asking if you want Hitler or Satan as a boss. And, as I’m a left-leaning atheist, I’d have to chose neither. Was that a bit too strong?

Ted McDonough: I want Perry White, Superman’s editor at the Daily Planet, a hard-bitten but fair, cigar-chomping editor with a soft spot.

Eric S. Peterson: I don’t know; both sound so (gag) appealing. Maybe if there were a job that combined the best of both, like working as a writer for the Mormon Times covering the Bunko Moms beat or following the action on the re-enacted handcart trail. That’s the kind of hard-hitting journalism I need to get into.

Doug Kruithof: Is this a trick question? Actually, probably the church as I can’t imagine peddling any of Singleton’s products, and I also heard that the church’s payroll takes out your required double-tithe pre-tax!

Paula Saltas: LDS Church. Only if they don’t get pissy with me if I do a calendar of naked Greek gods.

Bryan Bale: My dirty little secret: I’m a returned missionary. So, at this point, I’d rather take my chances with the Trib.

Jesse James Burnitt: Hmm … lying, manipulative media mogul, or lying, manipulative corporation/religion? Neither, thank you. I would rather spend my days sitting on Main Street asking for change. At least that would be honest.

Nick Clark: Isn’t that the same thing as: Whom do you want to be your boss, the puppet or the master?

Bryan Mannos: This is a trick question used by Saltas in his interviews. I failed it once. I have to plead the Fifth this time.

Casey Tracy: Good God! Hmm, let’s see, given the choice of a dictatorship with a sprinkling of greed or an institution that disregards historical fact and that pesky thing called science … I think I would rather wear a giant hot-dog costume at the grand opening of an auto extravaganza.
