  • Should Representatives make the jigsaw puzzle or should it be an independent commission?
    I’m voting “yes” for Proposition 4. It’s a bipartisan effort to reduce the gerrymandering in Utah that’s rampant. Utah Proposition 4, Independent Redistricting Commission Initiative (2018), according to BallotPedia? “A ‘yes’ vote supports this measure to create a seven-member independent redistricting commission to draft maps for congressional and state legislative districts. A ‘no’ vote opposes this measure to create a seven-member independent redistricting commission, thereby leaving the Utah State Legislature responsible for congressional and state legislative district maps.” Our panel of experts: Michael Lyons is an associate professor at Utah State University. He gave me a well-rounded look at Prop 4. Majority Senate Leader Ralf Okerlund is opposed to Prop 4. Je

  • Should the polls be trusted?
    People are skeptical about the polls in response to the 2016 election where Hillary Clinton was an overwhelming favorite and Donald Trump ended up winning major states. I think most polls are accurate, however, there are some that are terrible and people who conduct bad polls tend not to be hired to do polls. These polls that are coming out before the midterms are not part of a left-wing media bias. I’ve covered elections for a long time and I’m here to give my thoughts about how to think about the polls that are coming out before the upcoming election.

  • Bigfoot runs the vaccine conspiracy machine
    As flu season ramps up, people continue to be skeptical about the efficacy and safety of the flu vaccine. It’s especially ridiculous because there are stakes when it comes to an issue like this. There are vulnerable portions of our population that can be especially affected as a result of not getting their flu vaccine. People believe that it is some vast conspiracy and they’re right, Bigfoot is actually leading the anti-vaccine effort and i’m here to expose the biggest cover-up in history.   JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.

  • Should I vote or keep watching Judge Judy?
    People thought Hillary Clinton was going to overwhelming win the 2016 election and as a result, people didn’t bother turning out. They decided that rather than going out to vote that they would instead watch Judge Judy. So, it wasn’t that Trump over-performed, it was that Hillary Clinton under-performed in the election. So, maybe we need to rethink how people should understand polls.     JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.
