Pay No Attention to that Pesky Memo

May 28th, 2012 · No Comments · Uncategorized

By Denise Tessier Yet another column by Marita Noon made its way into the Albuquerque Journal. What’s interesting about this one (“Renewable Energy Can’t Compete With Fossil Fuels”, May 19), is that more than half-way into the piece, Noon criticizes media for giving too much credence to a 10-page right-wing strategy memo that was part […]

The Swift Debunking of Marita Noon (This Time, It’s Coming From INSIDE The Paper)

February 18th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

By Tracy Dingmann We at Journal Watch saw the ridiculous claims of oil and gas shill Marita Noon on one of her Facebook pages in the wake of the natural gas outages in New Mexico. According to Noon, it was Texas’s heavy reliance on wind power – not the obvious and catastrophic failure of Texas’ […]

Everybody’s an Expert

January 29th, 2011 · No Comments · Uncategorized

By Denise Tessier Albuquerque resident Eugene Aronson made a timely point in a letter to the editor that ran in the Albuquerque Journal Jan. 25, saying he didn’t understand “how the idea that one person’s opinion is as valid as anyone else’s came about.” He added: If I am deathly ill, I certainly would not […]

Inflammatory “Illegal Immigrant Superhighway” Headline Doesn’t Match The Story

December 8th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

By Tracy Dingmann An illegal immigrant superhighway? That’s what a headline on a Dec. 5 Journal news story said the federal government would create if it approves a plan to designate 259,000 acres of Dona Ana land as wilderness and an additional 100,000 acres as a national conservation area. The story, headlined “Inviting Trouble? Critics […]

Gushing About Oil

September 30th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

By Denise Tessier Marita K. Noon never met an extractive energy source she didn’t like. The one-time executive director of a pro-energy group called CARE now touts herself as the “executive vice president” of CARE’s “advocacy arm”, simplistically called Energy Makes America Great, Inc. Just how wonderful are the extractive energy industries? Well, here’s Noon’s […]

Oil Production at Any Cost

June 1st, 2010 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

By Denise Tessier I was wondering how the pro-drilling group CARE and its executive director, Marita K. Noon, would react to the Deepwater Horizon blow-out in the Gulf of Mexico. Thanks to the Albuquerque Journal, that question has now been answered. Noon has had a month to watch the beyond-control oil geyser as it pollutes […]

Journal Has A Soft Spot for Local Ultra-Conservatives

April 20th, 2010 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

By Tracy Dingmann Journal readers should probably tote a scorecard when they peruse the paper’s editorial page these days – because they really need one to keep track of all the local ultra-conservative writers and groups that have found such a cozy and welcoming home there. Here’s the latest example: On April 19, the Journal […]

When Honesty Appears Missing From the Policy

March 8th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

By Denise Tessier It seems almost too easy to criticize the Albuquerque Journal for running yet another Marita K. Noon column, because we’ve pointed out her errors,  simplistic assertions and lack of expert credentials in the past. But the Journal’s Op-Ed (opposite editorial) page carries her again today, this time with a convoluted essay headlined […]

Journal Shows Its Hand On Environmental Improvement Board

February 22nd, 2010 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

By Tracy Dingmann Did anyone else find the Albuquerque Journal’s description of the state Environmental Improvement Board as “seven people appointed by a governor” rather jarring? The description appeared Feb. 20 in an editorial called “Board Overreaching On Global Warming.” The editorial took the position that it “shouldn’t be up to a relatively obscure, appointed […]

At Least She Didn't Call Him a Watermelon

February 8th, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

By Tracy Dingmann Two fascinating Journal stories on New Mexico’s oil and gas industry recently caught my eye – and two more got my attention only after someone else pointed them out (more on those later). The first was the Sunday A1 article “New Mexico’s Emissions Battle: Some Question Rule Maker’s Environmental Ties.” What grabbed […]
