Salt Lake Tribune – Utah Rep. Mia Love sent a mailer with a quote attributed to The Salt Lake Tribune. It was from an opinion piece she wrote herself.

From the Salt Lake Tribune

A government-paid mailer sent by Rep. Mia Love features a big-type quote that it attributes only to “The Salt Lake Tribune.” She never mentions it actually is from a opinion piece that she wrote herself for the newspaper’s commentary page.

Such labeling “seriously misleads readers into believing that The Tribune as an institution supports Love’s environmental positions,” Tribune Editor Jennifer Napier-Pearce complained in writing to Love’s office.
