(KCPW News) If you read the Deseret News yesterday, you may have noticed something missing. A number of articles, instead of being attributed to the reporter who wrote them, simply said they were written by the “Deseret News staff.” That’s because several reporters pulled their bylines from their stories to protest what was seen as a demotion of two employees at the newspaper for sparring with management.
KCPW’s Jeff Robinson spoke with state government editor Josh Loftin, who organized the protest. He told Jeff that reporters at the D-News are not pleased with editor Joe Cannon’s attempts to turn the paper into a Mormon niche publication.
Despite Loftin's concerns about the direction of the paper, he does not plan to resign.
