Lots of people blame El Paso Times Editor Bob Moore for a perceived slant to the coverage in our English language daily. That’s naive.
Mr. Moore is not the top of the food chain at the El Paso Times. The publisher, president, and CEO of the El Paso Times is Sergio H. Salinas.
According to his LinkedIn page, Mr. Salinas background is in advertising. Specifically, accounts. If you’ve watched Mad Men, you know that the account guys are the people who keep the clients happy.
Does the Times coverage pander to the big money interests in El Paso? Judge for yourself. If you think it does, perhaps now you know why.
