Utah's largest paper blasts Hatch, says he should step down

HOR_BearsEars_02_681340524

"Orrin G. Hatch as the 2017 Utahn of the Year has little to do with the fact that, after 42 years, he is the longest-serving Republican senator in USA history, that he has been a senator from Utah longer than three-fifths of the state's population has been alive", the paper wrote.

Hatch's hometown newspaper, The Salt Lake City Tribune, went all-in on the Senator when they named him "the Utahn of the Year" in a recent op-ed.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, a Republican who has represented Utah in the Senate since 1977, was expected by many in the state to step aside in 2018.

Instead, the editorial says the seven term Senator was given the honor as a result of more dubious distinctions including, "his utter lack of integrity that rises from his unquenchable thirst for power".

Tight security for Jadhav's wife, mother
Pakistan has repeatedly denied India consular access to Jadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies. Jadhav's wife and mother were both our guests, he said, adding: "They came and left in an honourable fashion".

Quite similar to the yearly confusion surrounding the choosing process behind TIME magazine's Person of the Year, the Salt Lake City Tribune attempted to explain that being designated Utahn of the Year is not inherently positive.

The Salt Lake Tribune ran an editorial on Christmas Day excoriating Hatch and calling on him not to seek an 8th term in the Senate.

In justifying this last reason, the Tribune claims Hatch lied to voters in 2012 when he said it would be his last campaign.

The senator's office had not responded to a request for comment on the newspaper's editorial at the time of this article's publication.

STEELERS ON 11: Steelers clinch first-round bye with win against Texans
They held a comfortable 34-6 lead late against the Texans, and made a decision to take out several of their key players. When the Steelers had the ball at the 1, they gave it to fullback Roosevelt Nix for a second-quarter touchdown.

Speaking in a condescendingly paternalistic fashion, Hatch said earlier this year that Native Americans were "manipulated" into their support for the 1.35 million-acre Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah.

"If only he had listened to his own advice", the Tribune then added.

But a number of news outlets and online critics called out Hatch for referring to "the honor" of the Tribune's designation as the editorial board was slamming him.

Senate Finance Committee chairman speaks out on 'Special Report'. Hatch is too old and too out of touch to be an effective Republican in the senate. President Ronald Reagan, who maintained a close alliance with the notorious racist South African regime, vetoed the legislation, but his veto was overridden by Congress. Hatch voted against overriding Reagan's veto. He added that The Tribune had urged Mr. Hatch, who has served for over 40 years, to retire in the past.
