ABSTRACT
The article discusses how the "Post Register," a local newspaper survived challenges in relation to its journalism. The three major forces against the newspaper include the community's major religion, the richest guy in town and the conservative machine that controls Idaho. The "Post Register" went to court in late 2004 for its exposure of Boy Scout pedophiles and those who failed to kick them out of the scouting program. It was learned that some Mormon church members characterized the newspaper's coverage as an attack on their faith. According to the newspaper, the national Boy Scouts of America and its local Grand Teton Council hired law firms to seal the files that came to be known as the Brad Stowell Case.
