Deseret News = Propaganda Arm of the LDS Church?

A colleague sent me a link to this discussion on KCPW. It’s worth the 20 minutes it takes to listen to it. The focus is on the response to Dallin Oaks’s talk in the Utah media. As the author of several publications on media coverage of the LDS, I didn’t go quite as far as these reporters have in asserting that the Deseret News is basically just an arm of the LDS Church, but I don’t think such an assertion is that far off. Joe Cannon’s official title may be “editor”, but his unofficial title is really “apologist.”


I'm a college professor and, well, a professional X-Mormon. Thus, ProfXM. I love my Mormon family, but have issues with LDS Inc. And I'm not afraid to tell LDS Inc. what I really think... anonymously, of course!
