Barker report, payback?

KRQE's Larry Barker
(r) just reamed Pahl Shipley (l)
in his report, link, on the latest wave to wash up on Governor Bill Richardson's beach of public corruption scandals.

I wondered as I watched, that Shipley seemed to get a little more ink than the rest of the targets in the investigation.

One of my allegigators, alleges, Barker was getting a little payback. It turns out that Barker used to work for Shipley at a local TV station. When Shipley left the station, Barker did too. The surmise is, Shipley was material in ending Barker's stint.

The moral of the story;

Never pick a fight with a guy that buys ink by the barrel, or apparently, with a guy that makes his living as an investigative reporter, in particular if you are going to work for the 38th most corrupt state government in the entire US.
