When a doctor is falsely accused of malpractive, the result is a lawsuit. A journalist who is similarly maligned is supposed to sit back and take it. I suspect that is what Anne Constable will do in light of the fulminations by the Fiesta Council, which has further embarrassed itself by publishing them verbatim in Sunday’s New Mexican. The statement by the council’s president, Alberto Montoya, appears both as an op-ed piece and as a paid advertisement. At least the latter will marginally add to the newspaper’s bottom line.
