In covering New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez’s crusade to deny people like her grandfather drivers’ licenses, local news channel KRQE covered William Gheen’s Americans for Legal Immigration PAC as if it was a legitimate organization:
Not only is Gheen’s organization hateful (its latest excess is calling President Obama: “Dictator Obama”) but it wields very little influence, unable to muster even a few dozen bodies to events in Gheen’s home state. In fact, the organization is nothing but a scam, really, existing only to pay William Gheen’s hefty salary. The site’s traffic numbers which Gheen uses to claim influence are built off of nothing but page after page of copyright violation after copyright violation.
Ask KRQE never to give ALIPAC legitimacy on it’s news program again, especially as a counterbalance to local voices.
