Deseret News
The Deseret News is a newspaper published in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is Utah's oldest continuously published daily newspaper. It has the second largest daily circulation in the state behind The Salt Lake Tribune. The Deseret News is owned by Deseret News Publishing Company, a subsidiary of Deseret Management Corporation, which is a for-profit business holdings company owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (colloquially known as the Mormon or LDS Church). The newspaper is published by Newspaper Agency Corporation, which it co-owns with the Kearns-Tribune LLC, a fully owned subsidiary of Media News Group, under a joint operating agreement. As of 2000 its circulation was roughly half of the Tribune's. As of 2006, combined circulation of the 2 papers was 151,422. The Deseret News also publishes a weekly tabloid-sized insert, the Church News, and the Mormon Times insert, both of which are included in the newspaper (in the Saturday and the Thursday editions, respectively); the two inserts are also distributed as a separate publication outside of Utah. Church News includes news of the LDS Church and has been published since 1931, while the "Mormon Times" is about "the people, faith and culture associated with the church. " Since 1974 the Deseret News has also published the Church Almanac, an annual edition carrying LDS Church facts and statistics edited by Church News staff. The editorial tone of the Deseret News is usually described as moderate to conservative, and is often assumed to reflect the values of its owner, the LDS Church. For example, the newspaper does not accept advertising that violates church standards. However, it has taken liberal positions on amnesty for illegal immigrants and on CIA secret prisons, as LDS Church leaders have openly censured any type of torture.
