September 24th, 2014 · 1 Comment · energy policy, environment, journalism

By Arthur Alpert Across the globe, demonstrators marched and chanted and some did civil disobedience to wake the rest of us to the ill effects of climate change. That was Sunday, Sept. 21.

Syndicated Columnists and the Iraq War

February 21st, 2014 · No Comments · journalism

By Arthur Alpert The Albuquerque Journal just added David Ignatius as a regular columnist. I hadn’t realized the newspaper was in dire need of still another essayist who got Iraq wrong, but wait, let’s not jump to conclusions.

Also, I found myself in a pickle – for the newspaper’s Wednesday, April 21 issue reminded me how fascinating the Journal remains despite management’s misuse of it.

One Goodman as Good as Another

March 12th, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

By Denise Tessier Astonished. That’s the word that most accurately describes my first reaction to seeing a column by journalist Amy Goodman on the Albuquerque Journal’s editorial page Thursday morning. What initially caught my eye was seeing a woman’s picture on an editorial page column. The Journal runs so few. Even when it runs a […]
