The Orem Owlz Medium Is The Message

Illustration for article titled The Orem Owlz Medium Is The Message

For years, we have watched the totalitarian media/mind control tactics of the rookie-level Pioneer League team the Orem Owlz with a wary eye. They have sat there, in their megalomaniacal castle in Utah, acting as if they are the rulers of all the survey, wielding their power indiscriminately and without regard for any little people they might step on along the way. They have run unchecked for too long.


Finally, someone has bravely stepped up and challenged them.

Wanting to insure that everyone called their stadium the "Home of the Owlz" instead of Brent Brown Ballpark, the Owlz front office threatened to revoke press passes from any paper that didn't follow the new decree. To which the newspapers said: fuck off. Two newspapers, the Deseret Morning News in Salt Lake City and The Daily Herald in Provo, said fine, be that way, we'll just stop covering games.

"We won't trade our independence for access to athletic teams or any other news source. We simply don't let our subjects dictate how we report on them," Daily Herald executive editor Randy Wright said.


It is one small step toward the independence of the fourth estate, but it's one that future generations will always remember.
