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.
