Mission: Giving a Voice to the People

A voice. That is who Madam Millie Press is, an independent voice: a voice among voices, a contributor to the documentation of our times, and a megaphone for the voices often left out of New Mexico’s mainstream, established media. 

Madam Millie Press will publish articles, essays, columns, opinions, letters, photographs and other multimedia that broadcasts the voices of New Mexico. 

Independent New Mexico Journalism

Madam Millie Press will publish and distribute free content online. Madam Millie Press is self-funded and independent of advertising and has complete editorial freedom. 

Stories we will feature will vary but will all be relevant to New Mexico current events. Stories will be focused on art, culture and activism.

Anthony Albidrez, editor-in-chief 

Since I was about 15 years old, I’ve had a byline in New Mexico newspapers. The Silver High School journalism class had a student page in the Silver City Daily Press. This is where my journey in media began.

During college, I served as a staff writer and the editor of The Round Up, New Mexico State University’s student newspaper. I was also a newsroom intern at the Las Cruces Sun-News.

In more recent times, my work has been published in newspapers around the state of New Mexico: the Albuquerque Journal, the Las Cruces Sun-News, the Las Cruces Bulletin, the Santa Fe New Mexican, the Deming Headlight, the Alamogordo Daily News.

I am a member of the New Mexico Press Women. I am a first place winner of a New Mexico Press Association Better Newspaper Award. I am a New Mexico State University graduate. I have chosen to be a lifelong New Mexican and will continue to work in New Mexico media.

I started Madam Millie Press to continue my journey in New Mexico journalism. I hope to give a spotlight to some voices that might be silent without the assistance of the press.

I strongly believe New Mexico needs more independent voices in journalism to fill the voids that the established press in the state continue to fail to fill.

I believe that the journalism which succeeds best — and best deserves success — fears God and honors Man; is stoutly independent, unmoved by pride of opinion or greed of power, constructive, tolerant but never careless, self-controlled, patient, always respectful of its readers but always unafraid, is quickly indignant at injustice; is unswayed by the appeal of privilege or the clamor of the mob; seeks to give every man a chance and, as far as law and honest wage and recognition of human brotherhood can make it so, an equal chance; is profoundly patriotic while sincerely promoting international good will and cementing world-comradeship; is a journalism of humanity, of and for today’s world.
