Behind the Headlines

Utah’s monument pushback, redistricting lawsuit and LDS Church abuse ‘help line’

(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) The Bears Ears buttes April 10, 2021.

Utah sues over President Joe Biden’s upsizing of national monuments downsized by former President Donald Trump. A lawsuit alleging that Utah’s redistricting process amounted to an unconstitutional gerrymander moves forward. And a deep dive with the Associated Press journalist whose reporting showed that a sex abuse “help line” for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints can divert abuse complaints away from law enforcement, leaving children in danger.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporter Brian Maffly and news columnist Robert Gehrke join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
