Deseret News staffers organize byline strike

    I'm torn on this issue since I've lived in Utah for several years before my current gig. The D-News has always been the Mormon paper unless someone tells me otherwise.

    That doesn't excuse the editor for catering only to Mormon. Of course the editor has no journalism experience before becoming the editor, so that should tell you something.

    Byline strikes do nothing.

    Perhaps they should escalate to being to mad they serve a beer of mostly head.

    Let's hope they aren't paying people by the number of by-line stories they write.

    Yeah, Mitt would be the President of all the people.

    Suuuuure.
     
  6. They better be careful in their dissent. The way this industry is going, management is liable to Reagan them all and replace them with a new staff. It's not like there's a lack of writers out there desperate for jobs.

    I'd agree with that.

    Having worked briefly in Utah many years ago, nothing would surprise me when it comes to the newspaper business in that state. But I will say this: The reporter who is being promoted to city editor, Tad Walch, is good people.

    Or give them near beer. Wait, that's what they already sell in grocery stores.

    An intern participated? That's ballsy.

    Sounds like a union shop.
     
  12. Tad Walch may be my favorite guy in this business. Definitely on the short, short list. A great guy.
