  • Who’s running Donald Trump’s PR team?
    After bipartisan outrage over his comments in Helsinki, President Trump is now claiming he “misspoke” when he publicly denigrated US intelligence officials and absolved Russian president Vladimir Putin of meddling in the 2016 election. He’s amending his now-infamous “I see no reason why Russia would be involved” comment to “I see no reason why Russia wouldn’t be involved.” The pretense that he simply left out an apostrophe might ring truer had he not spent the better part of two years pushing this position, but as it stands? I’m not buying it. JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.

  • Why Mitt Romney makes UT a Russian target
    Utah is now a target of cyber attacks from Russia thanks to Mitt Romney. Thanks, Romney!  How did we get here, according to KSL.com?  Nearly a year after reality star and real estate mogul Donald Trump became the leader of the free world, the federal government informed 21 states that their election systems had been targeted by hackers during the 2016 election. Utah was not one of them, perhaps in part because of its low profile and consistent, conservative voting patterns. The Beehive State flew under the radar. That changed, however, when former presidential candidate Mitt Romney ran for senator in the Utah primary elections in June. During the 2017 primary election season, Utah’s information security team blocked about 500,000 to 700,000 attempts to scan or intrude into state we
  • Should we hold referees more accountable?
    Should we hold referees more accountable? How did we get here, according to Amy Donaldson's column in the Deseret News?  In different postgame interviews more than 1,200 miles apart, two local coaches did something so taboo, the leagues in which they work will likely fine them thousands of dollars for daring to doing so. In Minneapolis, Real Salt Lake head coach Mike Petke was finishing his postgame interview when he was asked if there was anything he’d like to add. “I was hoping you guys would ask,” he said. “Why did I get kicked out tonight?” He went on to highlight what he sees as inconsistencies and deficiencies not just on specific calls but on a system that doesn’t allow him to take issue with it. In Salt Lake City, Utah Royals FC coach Laura Harvey was, in a much more
  • Yes. Trump attacked America on foreign soil.
    President Trump said he sees no reason why Russia and their leader Vladimir Putin would interfere in the 2016 election, contradicting his own intelligence agencies’ findings, and said there was no reason for Russia to meddle in the vote.  He said that he addressed Russia's interference and that President Vladimir Putin was "extremely strong" in his denials. What? He's trusting a foreign leader, who we've been enemies with for years, over our own intelligence committee? This is an outrage.  I don't usually like to use the word "treason." I like to share my opinions, but there are words that are a "tune out" to some people. Treason is one of those words.    JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts
