During the Mexican Revolution, Pancho Villa bribed what publication for favorable coverage. This accusation was made public by then Mayor Tom Lea in the El Paso Herald on July 14, 1916.

It’s your chance to “Win, Place and Go!”

Weekdays (Monday – Friday) at the top of the 4pm hour, join Scott Ronson, KLAQ, and Sunland Park Racetrack for a round of “Win, Place, and Go.”

I will ask a trivia question about El Paso or a landmark, the first caller with the correct answer (win) will win $25.00 in lucky bucks and two Ventannas Buffet Q-pons.

The caller who comes in just behind the winner (place) will win lunch for 2 at Ventannas Buffet.

Today’s question and answer:

Q: During the Mexican Revolution, Pancho Villa bribed what publication for favorable coverage. This accusation was made public by then Mayor Tom Lea in the El Paso Herald on July 14, 1916.

A: The El Paso Times:

The El Paso Herald reported on July 14, 1916 the accusation by El Paso Mayor Tom Lea that rival publication the El Paso Times sold it’s columns to Pancho Villa for $10,000 in gold. Villa understood the power of image and was known to buy headlines to make himself look good.

Congratulation to today’s Win: Johnny Bautista

Congratulations to today’s Place: Casey Gelo
