This week on Sunday Edition Doug Wright sits down with Utah Project Leaders on a national program being tested in Utah called “The Dignity Index.” The project is trying to encourage political candidates to use more dignity and less contempt by scoring their words and messages on an eight-point scale. Doug discusses the index with Utah Project Lead Tami Pyfer and Dr. Jesse Graham, George S. Eccles Chair in Business Ethics at the University of Utah. This week they evaluate candidates’ previous comments made during this midterm election cycle and how they score, as well as comments made by candidates in the first of several debates put on by the Utah Debate Commission.
