Headwaters of the MRGCD at Cochiti Dam
The Albuquerque Journal remains stealthy for two days in a row on the Albuquerque Racino controversy that has now become public after it was revealed that Governor Martinez's fundraiser has been interviewed by the FBI concerning the awarding of the Racino license. And KRQE Channel 13 remains in stealth mode and refuses to say they had this whole story wrong. As a former journalist it just gives me a sinking feeling that we don't have the press watching our backs anymore at all! It pretty much indicates to me that Dick Knipfing has no say editorially at that TV station anymore. That is a loss for them. He was always a guy who would insist on correcting errors in reporting in the past. I guess it is not about being accurate journalists any more, but all about protecting the 'brand".
