Over the weekend, a rally was held in Salt Lake to draw attention to the renegotiated working agreement between the Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret News. The rally’s organizers, including Utah State Senator Jim Dabakis, allege the News is trying to “strangle” its longtime partner and competitor. Representatives from the News say they’re devoted to “multiple editorial voices.” Dabakis join us Tuesday as we take another look at the relationship between Utah’s two largest newspapers.
