Tribune demands that voters personal info remain public – in an unsigned article

See also

Hypocrisy is alive and well in the editorial room of the Salt Lake Tribune.

An unsigned article on the Tribune’s editorial page demands that the Utah voter list which contains the personal identifying information of 1.5 million Utah registered voters remain public so anyone, anywhere in the world can buy it and post it to the internet.

The author of the article was identified as: xxxxx xxxxxx.

The same article fails to list the specific organizations that make up the Utah Media Coalition.

Nor did the article identify the individuals who reviewed SB36 which would make it unlawful to post voters’ personal identifying information to the internet.

In addition, the article protects the identity of the individual or individuals who gave a “lights out” (kill) rating to SB36.

Finally, the Tribune article did not disclose the name of the person who wrote the narrative justifying the “lights out” (kill) rating.

For an organization that demands full transparency and that is willing to deny the right to vote to citizens who refuse to make their personal identifying information public, the Tribune certainly does not practice what it preaches.

Apparently, openness and transparency do not apply to the media elites who write anonymous articles and produce anonymous ratings for a coalition that does not reveal its members.
