The Trib and the News

I found it curious that on Feb. 19, Utah's two major newspapers reported on the conclusions of an air-quality study in the Uinta Basin.

The Tribune's headline concluded the Basin's air quality was being most significantly impacted by the oil and gas industry ("Study finds oil and gas causing pollution problem in eastern Utah"). The Tribune included a link to the study.

The other newspaper's title stated that weather was the main cause of the bad air, and the article included no link to the study ("Uintah Basin ozone study points to weather as driving factor"). Interesting.
