Complaint / review text:
The local paper, which comes out once a week in this here rural town of eastern Utah has really been getting on my nerves since moving here. It seems it should rename itself to be "The Vernal express of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints."
Anytime the mormon church makes an announcement of some new LDS revelation or another, it makes the front page, but I tend to wonder if the pope made a revelation, it wouldn't even be mentioned in this paper. (Do not refer to us as Catholics anymore.) or Fred Smith Jr. Of the Jehovahs Witness gave out the most Watchtowers today.
It devotes itself shamelessly and unadbashedly to the LDS church! What about other churches in the area? Oh yeah, it announces the Catholic churches annual spaghetti dinner, yet does it announce every action the Catholic or other churches make on a weekly basis?
Another thing I notice, is how this paper incriminates arrested people before they are even tried in a court of law (but this has already been addressed) and not everyone is gung-ho about Fred Smith Jr. About to embark on his mormon mission to the Guatahelia mountains or what he speaks of when he returns! Some of us do not know what a mission even is, and no do not send people to my home to enlighten me.
Not everyone is mormon in Vernal, Utah and some of us are glad! Why not make the paper for everyone in the community? Why not just not mention religion altogether? No I am not satan, I'm just buying the local paper to read about the community in which I live and reading I only live in this world the paper assumes I belong yet I know it is a community of diversity that never gets attention from the "only" local media.
I feel it is a rip-off to my intellect and my fifty-cents.
