    The Salt Lake Tribune endorsed President Obama for reelection Friday, with an editorial that was highly critical of Republican challenger Mitt Romney, who is as close to being a favorite son candidate from Utah, the historic and cultural center of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as a nonresident can be.
    The Tribune, published by MediaNews Group, criticized Romney’s “servile courtship of the Tea Party” to win his party’s nomination and called him “shameless” in pandering to various constituencies, terming him the GOP’s “shape-shifting nominee.”
    “Romney has raised the most frequently asked question of the campaign: ‘Who is this guy, really, and what in the world does he truly believe?’ ” the editorial states. It also said he “has repeatedly refused to share specifics” of many of his proposals.

    I didn't comment in that thread.

    And that's the best you can muster when biggest paper in Utah kicks Romney in the nuts? Pretty weak.

    The Trib is an Anti-Mormon rag. Always has been, always will be. They traditionally bash everything even remotely related to the LDS Church or any prominent member. It is one of the most biased, one sided papers in the nation when it comes to politics and religion.
     
  5. Somebody from Salt Lake would certainly know better than the OP, who is grasping at straws in desperation.

    and once again, the facts go right past Featherlicker, as does the fact that the same paper endorsed Obama last time, and the state voted McCain

    Another Diddledy-squat thread by the frantic liberals


    The desperation from the liberals is getting quite amusing.

    The Salt Lake Tribune has always been a liberal leaning paper. No surprises there.
    It has two redeeming values over it's counterpart, The Deseret News. It's not owned by the LDS church and it has better cross-word puzzles.

    I will put up with a lot for a good cross-word puzzle

    I don't see why they would endorse Obama over Romney: Obama is against polygamy. :whistling:

    Well, if a newspaper printed it, it must be true. We all know how honest and truthful newspapers are. :rofl:

    flintlicker, pedal your crap elsewhere. Maybe the huffington post or move on.org.

    I subscribe to it and in general I'd agree with your assessment though I don't think they're particularly anti-Mormon. But I don't read editorials much so I may be missing something there.

    If Featherkicker's little news deserves it;s own thread this probably does. Of course, featherlicker was subtly trying to use what he hoped would be an accepted stereotype of Utah (Mormons don'tcha know) in typical liberal bigot fashion.

    I guess Flintlicker forgets that regardless of location, the media are firmly in the enemy camp. THis is not news.
