Pride bus bumped, Bible banned and gerrymandering defended on ‘Behind the Headlines’

Salt Lake Tribune journalists join radio’s look at the week’s top stories.

(Utah Transit Authority) This pride-themed Utah Transit Authority bus did not appear in Salt Lake City's 2023 pride parade.

The Bible is banned in some Utah elementary and middle schools for “vulgarity or violence.” Records show that four GOP lawmakers pushed the Utah Transit Authority to remove a pride-themed bus. And congressmen tell the Supreme Court that Utahns have no right against partisan gerrymandering.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Courtney Tanner, Jordan Miller and Emily Anderson Stern, along with news columnist Robert Gehrke, join Utah Public Radio’s Tom Williams to talk about the week’s top stories.

Every Friday at 9 a.m., stream “Behind the Headlines” at kcpw.org, or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio at www.upr.org for the broadcast. Join the live conversation this week by email to upraccess@gmail.com or Twitter @upraccess.
