ABQ Journal three months late on population story

March 29, 2018

The state's largest newspaper, the Albuquerque Journal, is three months late on a story.

 

This morning, March 29, the Journal had a front-page story about New Mexico's continued brain drain and how more people are leaving the state than are coming here. The Journal acted like this is new information.

 

 It isn't. The U.S. Census Bureau released its latest state population estimates in late December of last year. So the Journal is three months late on the story.

 

If you read ABQReport, you would have gotten those stats the day the Census Bureau released them. I've posted the story below.

 

And the Journal, ever the apologist for the status quo, shouted that New Mexico's population for the year that ended July 1, 2017, was "Stable." No, it's not stable, it's stagnant.

 

And, the Journal missed the latest population stats for metro areas, which the Census Bureau released last week. Again, I reported those stats last week. That story is also posted below.

 

At least one blogger has acted like the Journal's story is fresh news. It isn't. Maybe the blogger should do his own research instead of relying on the Journal to be three months late on its stories.
