Do you think you can get the truth from the El Paso Times?
Look at this column from Ramon Bracamontes on the occasion of his retirement from the position of News director of El Paso’s English language daily:
[I]n El Paso I got to meet five people who have done more for my home than anyone should have. With the help from others, they’ve re-shaped the future of El Paso for the better.
. . .
Woody Hunt and Paul Foster. These two men are the most unselfish individuals to ever walk this city. They are too good for El Paso. They’ve have improved the quality of life in this city by funding the right institutions and rebuilding Downtown.
It’s about time this city honors them. The Hunt-Foster Downtown Multi-Purpose Center has a nice ring to it.
Woody Hunt and Paul Foster have done great things for El Paso. Mr. Foster funded the medical school, and Mr. and Mrs. Hunt funded the UTEP Nursing School, as well as the FEMAP nursing school in Juarez. They’ve contributed more to El Paso than I can list in this column, because the internet doesn’t have enough room in it.
Such fawning hero worship doesn’t allow for any critical comment. And there’s room for criticism.
Not that you’d know that from the El Paso Times.
