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. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

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, 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

Progression & Regression



The makeup of Utah’s progressives is very disheartening. Occupy Salt Lake City has been infested with loyal Mormons and sympathizers who have prevented Occupy from focusing on by far the most corrupting corporate influence here in Utah—and one of the most corrupting in the country and world: the Mormon church. And some in the Utah Progressive Caucus of the Utah Democratic Party voice publicly and proudly—without opposition or irony—that former Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman Jr., as much an advocate for the 1 percent and trickle-down economics as Mitt Romney, would be as good or better a vice president to President Obama as Joe Biden.
