Behind the Headlines

The VP debate, a presidential poll, a senator’s comments on ‘rank democracy,’ and fact-checking coronavirus misinformation 


This past week, Utah hosted the only vice presidential debate of the 2020 election; a new poll found President Trump has a ten point lead over Joe Biden in the Beehive State; Sen. Mike Lee took aim at “rank democracy” on Twitter; and coronavirus columnist Andy Larsen fact-checked a viral social media post.

Recap these stories and more on KCPW’s “Behind the Headlines.” This week, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Lee Davidson, Andy Larsen and Taylor Stevens will join editorial page editor George Pyle and KCPW’s Roger McDonough.
