A recent Salt Lake Tribune article beautifully illustrates "Utah morality," and censorship too. Article rewritten here, with comments in bold added by me, Daniel Geery. 

Original propaganda by Tribune writer, David Montero:  

They've clawed and scratched -- often with little or no money -- to get attention, traction or even just acknowledgment that they might have an impact on a congressional race this election season.

Yes, we've clawed and scratched, if you wish to put it that way, but the truth is we've simply been blacked out by the press in Utah. A press which consistently runs articles, op-eds, and televises exclusive Democrat and Republican debates, and then lies that third parties could have been invited, if only they asked. Which one did, but was blacked out anyway (while others were never told about it), illustrating the typical lie by power brokers in these parts. 

I send and hand letters to dozens of Salt Lake papers, such as this one, and get told they won't run them, or else get ignored. Or they do print them, and simultaneously distort them, as did the Deseret News, leaving out critical information, such as third party websites and authors' names.  Put bluntly, we have a censorship here in Utah that would bring a smile to the face of Hitler and Groebbels. 

Then we get hit on the head and kicked in the pants by goons like David Montero, writer of this Tribune article, or else slapped by Vern Anderson, a lead editor there, as he flat out says he won't do pieces on third party candidates--or even run the letter I personally hand him.


"I'd like to be called a spoiler," Daniel Geery said. "Right now, I'm invisible."

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)
