Brooke Adams of the Salt Lake Tribune handles the polygamy beat for the paper. Yes, that’s right; the Trib has a dedicated reporter who researches and writes stories about polygamists. Because of her topical knowledge, she’s written some very interesting stories about the Texas polygamy case. Alone among her peers, Adams challenged the legality of Texas’ raid on the FLDS compound, pretty much from the start. This Poynter article has a great Q&A with Adams– well worth reading. How I wish we had more investigative reporters like her, and fewer like the kind we see on FoCNMSNBC.
