Do you ever wonder why editors at the Albuquerque Journal make the news decisions they do? Do the editorials sometimes make you shake your head or throw the paper down in disgust? My former Albuquerque Journal colleague Denise Tessier and I are trying to unravel some of the reasons many readers are so unhappy with the city's only daily paper in a new media criticism blog called abqjournalwatch.com. Please come check us out for thoughtful, informed media critiques!

Albuquerque needs both the Journal and (especially) its critics. Thanks for doing this!

Yes, it's not about who had the better paper...it's about who had the rights to the more lucrative morning publication. Afternoon papers everywhere, no matter how good, have consistently been first to go under because of complicated market trends and changing consumer habits across the board.
For more info about specific complaints against the Journal, I recommend you read the first two establishing posts...we both tried to lay out the ongoing complaints we've observed ourselves and heard often from others! Thanks!

Oops, here's the link to the site....http://abqjournalwatch.com/. I recommend you read "Introducing ABQ Journal Watch" and "Just the News, Without An Agenda" first.
