Do you really think there is a place for you in the revitalized El Paso?

For many years now, there has been an ongoing battle to reinvent El Paso under the utopian vision of a powerful elite. I have been documenting this and have offered you many examples of the destruction of El Paso’s identity. Sometimes it is important to just focus on the most basic element to make a… Read More Do you really think there is a place for you in the revitalized El Paso?

Batter Up: Bob Moore

For many years now, I have been documenting the ethical malfeasance of the El Paso Times and therefore it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Bob Moore leads the El Paso Chusmas lineup. The leadership of Bob Moore has not only allowed public corruption to infest local politics but, in many instances, it has enabled it to… Read More Batter Up: Bob Moore

Bob Moore Hypocrisy

Amazingly, Bob Moore, editor of the El Paso Times masquerading as a newspaper, has the audacity to write an OP-ED piece on the necessity of transparency in government. In case, you missed it, Bob Moore published, in yesterday’s daily, an opinion piece both bemoaning the controversy an article on Paul Foster and the Koch brothers his… Read More Bob Moore Hypocrisy

Another Example of El Paso News Media Incompetence

As usual, the local English media does not completely inform the community about the ongoing issues at city hall. Even issues that are controversial and important to the community go unreported because the local reporters are too lazy to sit through the city representatives’ meeting to properly inform the taxpayers. Last Tuesday, September 10, 2013,… Read More Another Example of El Paso News Media Incompetence

Open Meetings; Bob Moore and Journalistic Ethics, and, oh yea Susie Byrd Did the Right Thing

Correction, August 18, 2013 at 9:00am: Yesterday it was brought to my attention that I had inadvertently removed some journalists from the discussion thread during my transcription. It was also pointed out to me that the executive session was called by Dee Margo based on “personnel matters”, which is a permissible use of the executive… Read More Open Meetings; Bob Moore and Journalistic Ethics, and, oh yea Susie Byrd Did the Right Thing

FX’s The Bridge is Developing a Good Indicator of the El Paso Undercurrent

Like many people I have been watching The Bridge and like many who have lived and experienced El Paso there are many things in the television show that are obviously literary licenses taken by the network. But there is also much underlining truth that many in El Paso ignore, or conveniently turn a blind eye… Read More FX’s The Bridge is Developing a Good Indicator of the El Paso Undercurrent

El Paso Times Continues to Fail: How Public Perception is Wrong Because of the Daily

Last week’s trial for Billy Abraham on his accident and subsequent conviction on driving under the influence demonstrates how community perception is misguided by the failure of the El Paso Times to adequately and professional inform the community. On July 27, 2012, the El Paso Times ran “Billy Abraham not guilty of intoxicated manslaughter; guilty… Read More El Paso Times Continues to Fail: How Public Perception is Wrong Because of the Daily

John Cook’s Request for Legal Expenses Reimbursement and El Paso Times Incompetence

As most of you already know, on Tuesday, July 23, 2012, city council voted unanimously to deny John Cook’s claim for his legal fees. As is the process when filing a claim against the municipality, John Cook now has the option to file a lawsuit against the city. As part of my questions with John… Read More John Cook’s Request for Legal Expenses Reimbursement and El Paso Times Incompetence

Steve Ortega Returns Campaign Contribution and Other Questionable Characters Contribute

The El Paso Times saw fit to make an issue of a $25 campaign contribution to the Oscar Leeser Campaign from Fernando Parra who has pled guilty to public corruption in today’s edition. But as is the modus-operandi of the local paper masquerading, as a newspaper, it has neglected to point out questionable characters donating… Read More Steve Ortega Returns Campaign Contribution and Other Questionable Characters Contribute

Who is The Forma Group?

Reviewing Steve Ortega’s campaign finance reports I noticed that Steve Ortega has paid a company named The Forma Group almost $200,000 since 2012. So who is The Forma Group I pondered. As with everything political in El Paso tracking down information about political linkages is like searching for the ever illusive winning lottery ticket, you… Read More Who is The Forma Group?
