Behind the Headlines

Clergy request hate-crime crackdown, Legislature decries Utah guv and Chris Stewart warns of politics in intelligence agencies


Utah’s religious leaders advocate for a bill that would enhance penalties for hate crimes. Utah House Republicans slam Gov. Gary Herbert after disagreeing on the process of the 2017 3rd Congressional District special election. And Rep. Chris Stewart visits the Legislature to tell lawmakers that the real scandal in Washington isn’t Russian election meddling — but that intelligence agencies are choosing sides in politics.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporter Luke Ramseth, government and politics editor Dan Harrie and columnist Robert Gehrke join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.

Each Friday morning, stream “Behind the Headlines” online at or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
