Pity for the Commissars

April 29th, 2016 · No Comments · journalism

By Arthur Alpert The Albuquerque Journal’s trespasses against journalism come so fast and furious there’s no keeping up. It requires that I identify and comment on issues every single day. It’s too much, I get confused trying to figure out what to tackle first, fail to cope and feel guilty. When will I get around, […]

March 24th, 2016 · 4 Comments · budget policy, civil rights, Congress, inequality, role of government, social safety net

By Denise Tessier After nearly a year’s hiatus from writing for ABQJournalWatch, I am compelled to add to the points my colleague Arthur Alpert made Tuesday in his post about the Journal’s anti-Planned Parenthood campaign. The impetus is Wednesday’s UpFront column – “100 years of fighting for reproductive rights”. At first, the front-page headline prompted […]

By Denise Tessier Those who lamented the departure of Leslie Linthicum as UpFront columnist for the Albuquerque Journal can take heart with the newspaper’s hiring of former Albuquerque Tribune writer Ollie Reed Jr. The development also is heartening when one considers that this month marked the departure of Journal science writer John Fleck, another UpFront […]

Inexcusable Lack of Editing Maligns One of Journal’s Own

September 10th, 2013 · 1 Comment · journalism, Uncategorized

By Denise Tessier The Albuquerque Journal editorial page staff’s willingness to run anything and everything on the Op-Ed page has been in evidence rather frequently lately, but one of the worst that made it into print was a screed Saturday (Sept. 7) that railed unfairly against one of the Journal’s own. The mean-spirited piece that […]

Headlining What Is Neither New nor News

March 6th, 2012 · No Comments · Uncategorized

By Arthur Alpert We often find the Albuquerque Journal’s editorial agenda hidden in its news columns; management’s opinions shine brightly once we’ve mined, polished and assayed them. Sometimes, though, there’s no need to dig, no ore, no agenda, just what’s on the surface. Such was the case Monday, March 4, where our daily offered a […]

A Call for Clarity

October 13th, 2011 · No Comments · Uncategorized

By Denise Tessier Every so often, a word gets dropped from a story in the Albuquerque Journal. It makes the reader pause, but usually, one can surmise what the dropped word was and continue reading. Frankly, I’ve always marveled — even when I was working in the midst of it — at the way talented […]

Putting the Blame Where It Belongs

January 17th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

By Denise Tessier Once again, an UpFront Journal columnist has stepped up with a piece that counters and tempers what some might consider a misguided column that appeared on the Journal’s editorial page. This time, I refer to Joline Gutierrez Krueger’s Jan. 14 piece, “Sick for a Long Time. . .And Nobody Stepped In.” The […]

The Journal's Fable-Worthy Narratives

November 22nd, 2010 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

By Arthur Alpert In my dotage (or to delay my dotage), I act on local stages. I have a role now in Albuquerque Little Theater’s production of Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas,” opening the day after Thanksgiving. If you remember the movie with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye and Rosemary Clooney, you know the plot is dopey […]
