In its story about Utah House Majority Leader Kevin Garn paying a woman $150,000 to keep quiet about a nude hot tubbing incident, the Deseret News reports that "Garn sat down and spoke about the incident with Deseret News reporters and editors" in 2002 -- the year the money was paid -- but the paper decided not to tell readers about it.
