We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. 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.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

What was the point of the Johnny Bangerter piece [“Johnny’s Rotten,” April 11, City Weekly]? I would call it a cover story, but use of the word “story” implies purpose and reason.

Was it awareness (of what?)? Was it to sell advertising (always and all ways), or proof Sid Vicious did die in vain? Here’s a real news tip: Chicken seen crossing the road! Why? To get his story in City Weekly! CW could spin it that he was a pedophile ... got caught trying to lay an egg!

Don’t worry about accuracy, it’s the City Weekly. Who cares? Who would even know to care? CW: effectively, noise without change, all well within acceptable advertising range ... and most likely what John Bangerter (Johnny Rotten) was really all about!
