Deseret News Ignores Gay Protest

The demonstration Thursday night was a response to remarks from a church leader that homosexuality is an immoral condition that can and should be overcome.

Question: Did the Salt Lake Tribune overplay the story by putting it on Page 1? Or did the Deseret News underplay it but not posting anything about the demonstration?
