Needs improvementEdit

I flagged with the Tone template and removed the following paragraph: "As New Mexico’s oldest, largest and only statewide newspaper, the Albuquerque Journal not only keeps the state’s citizens informed, it keeps them connected. The newspaper has always been a forum for public debate and a medium for information, providing news coverage on important issues throughout the city, state and country." Sounds like it was lifted from AJ's self-promotional materials. Also don't know why there's a section devoted to the price of the newspaper.11 Arlington (talk) 06:05, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Older commentsEdit

There needs to be a citation for the endorsement of George W. Bush.

ISSNEdit

I dug up the ISSN in a few remote library websites 1, 2, 3. If someone can verify, we can go ahead and get rid of the ISSN-needed template. --Pipian (talk) 04:42, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

"Sunday Journal"Edit

I've dug around heavily on the ABQjournal website and can't find any reference to "Sunday Journal" (presumably I'm in the same position as the person who added the citation needed template). So I'm going to remove the reference to the "Sunday journal" and state that it is published every day.

References:

The page here: [1] would surely mention a change of name on a Sunday. And also the advertising literature elsewhere on the site makes no mention of it, even though it is presumably very relevant to people placing ads. The only thing I can find is daily/Sunday readership figures at [2].

The paper is a little schizophrenic. On Sundays it is titled The Sunday Journal, and the How to Reach Us box on p. A2 says "published weekly". On other days it is titled Albuquerque Journal, and How to Reach Us says it is publshed "daily except Sunday". So far so good, except that the issues are numbered sequentially, so for example today's (Sunday's) The Sunday Journal is "128th Year, No. 209" and yesterday's Albuquerque Journal is "127th Year, No. 208". (Also note the discrepancy in years; the paper was founded in 1880 so 128th year is correct.) Also, the two papers (if there are two) have identical formats and the same staffs. Also, mysteriously The Sunday Journal shows ISSN 1526-5137 on p. A2 while Albuquerque Journal shows no ISSN. There is some mention of the two names on the web site, for example 2008 Retail Rate Card says "The Albuquerque Journal and The Sunday Journal reach your potential customers." (The rate card includes a photo of rolled-up papers with each name.) This is probably more information than anyone wants to know about the paper; what's a good way to summarize it for the article? --Uncia (talk) 00:33, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Removing POV, Expand templatesEdit

This article had POV and Expand templates in the Endorsements section, but there was no explanation on the talk page of the POV problem or of why this section in particular needed to be expanded (the whole article is already marked as a stub). So I have deleted these two templates. --Uncia (talk) 14:25, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
