(KCPW News) When an apostle of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints give a speech, what’s the news angle? Is it the speech itself, is it how others react to the speech, or both? We talk about bias related to covering the Church with Josh Loftin, managing editor at the City Weekly and former Deseret News reporter, Monica Bielanko, executive producer at FOX 13, and Glen Warchol, who writes the Salt Lake Crawler blog for the Salt Lake Tribune. Deseret News Editor Joe Cannon was invited to join, but respectfully declined.
For a different perspective, we also talked with Joel Campbell, associate professor of communications at Brigham Young University and author of the “Mormon Media Observer” column for the Mormon Times, a section of the Deseret News.
