The Albuquerque Journal and Tribune cannot report credibly on the APS ethics scandal…
…until they report credibly on their failure to report credibly on the APS ethic scandal, so far.
If my allegations of scandal are true, and the papers have known about it even through two elections; then it goes without saying that the Journal and Tribune have done something wrong. And they need to explain themselves.
If my allegations of scandal are untrue, then why haven’t they written an article that said, we looked into allegations of ethical and criminal misconduct by APS senior administrators and board members and found that the allegations lacked substance?
Why haven’t they reported upon the innocence of the Leadership of APS if they are indeed innocent?
It would cost them nothing. The investigation has already been done. They have investigated the allegations, right? They took a look at public records that I said were incontrovertible proof of ethical and criminal misconduct; and found no evidence of misconduct, right?
There is only one reason that they haven’t printed the allegations of innocence, and that is because when the truth does come out; it will be obvious that they lied.
…a deliberate lie, and not the kind of lie where you just don’t tell the truth, but the kind of a lie where you tell an untruth. It’s a harder kind of lie to explain your way out of when you get caught.
