Whither Mr. Moore
An astute reader sent us an email and asked if our soon to be gone newspaper editor plans to go to work for the county judge’s congressional campaign.
Then again she wondered if he might go work for our current congressman–the one who is running for senate.
We deserve better

What is the point of this speculation? He will be gone in two weeks, let’s find out what he really intends to do then!
If you can’t run a Newspaper, get it delivered to customers day to day………………The paper is so broke they don’t even have Reporters. The ONLY “News” is from Juarez and reprints from other Newspapers, what has already appeared from other sources, TV. If you wanted to sell Newspapers, make it a “Crime Report”. INVESTIGATIVE Reporters. The inherent Public Corruption, political corruption in El Paso, a POLICE Reporter, the outrageous TAXES in El Paso and what the POLITICIANS do with OUR money. The Times is run by, influenced by, over seen by POLITICIANS, DEMOCRATS in El Paso. EVERY “Editorial” is against the President, Republicans, the Country. I took the Times for years. The daily delivery just got worse and had to call 3-4 days a week to get the paper. Then I cut it down to only Saturday, Sunday. Same problem. No delivery, have to call in. Sometimes get a paper delivered, sometimes not at all. I requested it be cancelled on the web site, effective the first of August. It still showed up. “Oh you can’t cancel on the web site, have to call in”. So I called in. “Your cancellation date is 5 August, can’t cancel the first”. No reason why. Was gone most of the month of August. Came back, had a driveway full of wet newspapers. It hadn’t been stopped the 1st or even the 5th of August. Sent Emails to the Editor, President. Not even the courtesy of a response. And then they charged my credit card for half the price for the entire month of August. Was a waste of time to try and get the money back. No News, no Reporters, bad Management. So yes, maybe Mr Moore could be in politics in El Paso.
The EP Slimes has been working for the County Judge for years — and against the better interests of El Pasoans. It has a poor excuse for a newspaper under Mr. Moore and before. Learn to read Spanish and read Diario.
I plan I walking around the house in my underwear and watching a lot of day time TV for a couple of months. After that I might buy a used Honda Goldwing and ride up to Vegas. Not that it’s any of your business.
‘Anonymous’ had a very good observation: “I took the Times for years. The daily delivery just got worse and had to call 3-4 days a week to get the paper. Then I cut it down to only Saturday, Sunday. Same problem. No delivery, have to call in. Sometimes get a paper delivered, sometimes not at all. I requested it be cancelled on the web site, effective the first of August. It still showed up. “Oh you can’t cancel on the web site, have to call in”. So I called in. “Your cancellation date is 5 August, can’t cancel the first”. No reason why.”
Piss poor delivery service is what will help kill that paper. The Times ought to mandate that each reporter to go out on a different paper delivery route for a full week, and then report back to management their observations. In addition, print reporters should be required to take a college business course in marketing. Today it seems print reporters live in a kind of ‘watergate glory days ivory tower bubble,’ separate from the real working world. Businesses fail and go out of existence when their products lack relevance or value.
KVIA had an interesting 10:30PM extra program, but was surprised there were only a few callers, with one man calling in twice. Plus there seemed to be no questions sent in over the internet. Really strange for that once a week evening program.
Thought the Times guy Moore, was well informed, plus up front in all of this comments, and he certainly did not try to ‘sugar coat’ the problems that paper faces.
I wrote this to Max Powers last week: “The bleeding heart liberal, Bob Moore, will be appointed County Judge.”
