Behind the Headlines

LDS wealth on ‘60 Minutes,’ an LGBTQ school walkout and Kennecott’s tailings

(CBS News) David Nielsen, a former senior portfolio manager with the LDS Church’s investment wing who turned whistleblower, talks to correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi on “60 Minutes.”

This week in Utah news: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says a “60 Minutes” episode about its investment portfolio was based on “unfounded allegations.” LGBTQ+ students in Utah County walk out to protest the school board’s silence on removing pride flags. And Kennecott’s tailings may creep even closer to Magna homes.
