Deseret News on SLCW's 10th Birthday

august 5, 2002  10:12 am
"Raffish," "lurid," "biting," "anti-establishment" -- these are some of the adjectives used in conservative Salt Lake City to describe its scrappy alt-weekly, according to Deseret News. Salt Lake City Weekly Publisher John Saltas takes understandable pride in this description as the paper celebrates its 10th anniversary. "It's unprecedented," Saltas tells the daily. "It merely validates just how important it is to continue telling those stories" that touch sensitive nerves. "We ought to be fair," Managing Editor Christopher Smart says, "but we certainly don't profess to be objective."
