Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

The Mormon Church public relations is so effective at suppressing bad news that they can't even deliver good news for their organization in a genuine way.---

The MoBlog keeps rolling, distributing conversational news to a public hungry for More Mo! in their own 2.0 awesomeness. As long as that 2.0 means a one-way lecture and re-released press releases.

At this point, the MoBlog up to seven posts, which is an average of about one every 2-3 days. I'd mock them, but frankly it's better than I've done recently. But then again, I am only one man and they are ... well, based on the blog postings, also only one man.

For the MoBlogger, however, there is an excuse: Waiting in line for what feels like forever to get into the new Church History Library. The crowds are outlandish! Well, at least the MoBlog claims it is, and they do back it up with a claim that almost 300 people have visited daily since it opened two months ago.

Being an investigative reporter, however, my discerning sensibilities immediately wanted more proof. Thankfully, the MoBlog provides it in the way of pictures. One is a picture of the crowds waiting to get into the library. My god, it's like Disneyland! The other is of the sweaty masses climbing on top of each other to get at the books crammed onto the shelves, in what could easily be confused for a Glenn Beck book signing.
