The Albuquerque Journal glazed over the fact that Mayor Chavez had a fund raiser at the home one of the indicted suspects in the State Treasurer campaign. Just the day before there was a front page story about the Governor's friend, Game and Fish Comission member Guy Riordan, having been an investment advisor to the State Treasurer. The story on the Governor didn't allege any wrong doing whatsoever, but it was prominent. The story on the Mayor's fundraiser didn't allege any wrongdoing either. The difference in handling the stories was phenonomenal. Shouldn't they be given the same amount of coverage? Why is one on the front page of the Sunday Journal while the other is in a reporter's notes sidebar? Go figure.
