[Heber J. Grant]

Judge Nephi Jensen called and complained bitterly because the Deseret News quite frequently fails to publish things that happen in his court where influential people are involved, and a poor Negro or a person of no importance whatever receives lots of publicity. He said there is a feeling that is growing that the moneyed interests control the Church organ. ... He said he thought the News was committing suicide by not coming out actively and strongly in favor of the interests of the common people as against the moneyed interests.
