Update - A "Go-To" News Source

I wrote a review 3 years ago for this app, (See below). And in the intervening period they continue to make improvements and enhancements. It is my go-to source for Utah and Mountain West news, but they are also a good source for breaking and key US news as well. If I were allowed only one news source (not likely unless the president shuts down every news outlet he hates) it would be this Deseret News app. Bookmark it. Put it on your home page. "SCA" it. (Single Click Access).


I have lived all around the United States (in 9 different states to be exact) and have sampled local and national news in a variety of formats during those 30+ years. The Deseret News electronic edition is one of the top few in content, design and delivery. And it keeps getting better. I wouldn't be surprised to find it in the top 5 nationally in a variety of categories. I wouldn't let its geographical location keep it from becoming a regular read for individuals regardless of location or persuasion.

Good reporting and writing

I love the in-depth reporting on substantive issues; it is important that in the media, there is a voice like the Deseret News, shedding light and a correct perspective.

I also appreciate the thoughtful analysis from the editorial team. So many papers and news outlets post knee-jerk stories to complex problems and incite greater calamity that the original issue should have created. A stable and calm-headed voice like the Deseret News is needed.

I would like the DN to include the option to comment on articles from within the app, instead of on social media.

Deseret News is Biased

The Deseret News’ writers and publishers do not fairly report the news. As only one recent example, stories about Mia Love’s shenanigans were buried in back pages. On its website unflattering stories about Love were delayed, do much I actually called to ask when they’d be published because news outlets both in and out if Utah has already reported negative news - and there’s been plenty about Love and the Republicans. The illogical Republican bent of the Deseret News undermines its credibility and professionalism. Report the news, don’t spin or hide it for your own political ideology. Report objective facts without spin and let your readers decide. Reporters should never filter news or soin it for their readers. I much prefer the Salt Lake Tribune for its better reporting.
