Wont be long now. Crappy editing, lousy news coverage, political afiliation, super extreme intrusive advertising online, unable to deliver papers. Wont be long at all. And good riddance.

When I google the Las Cruces Sun News, I often do not see the letters to the editor or the local opinion columns for that day. A while back (one or two months) Michael Hays said he had to "persuade" them to place a Harbison column on line (presumably so he could comment on it). Perhaps my computer skills are lacking.

Spent a weekend in LC, after reading two days of the Sun News I was begging to see a high quality newspaper - so much so I looked long and hard but I did find the Albuquerque Journal - thank goodness.

This in not a newspaper. It is a mouthpiece for the Police Dept,and the City Council.
The Editor if you wish to call him that is worthless.
Better to read the Bulletin.

.
The Sound Off was in the paper's web site until a couple of years ago. It started to bring up real issues about the City Council and the Mayor,on many questionable subjects. People were discussing things like the Red Light Cameras,and the crooked company that ran it(Red Flex). See www.thenewspaper.com The comments were getting to many Citizens thinking and that was not good for the Council or Mayor. All of a sudden it was relegated into a remote spot that was hard to find.
Instead Facebook came in and the whistle blowers were affectively stopped. no more pesky questions to answer by the Council & Mayor. Because no Whistle Blower can give info when they can be hunted down for telling the truth on what is going on.
This paper is an afront to the First Amendment.

The El Paso Times should be next. All they do is try to help cover up all the crime and corruption in El Paso, but they are not even good at that.

To the guys posting about the El Paso Times... You faggots obviously live in las cruces or Albuquerque. I read the El Paso times everyday and have for years as do thousands of other El Pasoan's. Crime in El Paso? How ignorant are you? 4 years in a row as the safest big city in America... Get a life you loser
