If you watched any national news yesterday on network or cable channels, the top story was the same. If you go to Kiosko, you'll find that all five of today’s featured papers plus The Wall Street Journal placed it at the top of their front page. As the Associated Press headlined it in one of its many reports:
Watchdog: Comey ‘insubordinate,’ not biased in Clinton probe
Here is the AP’s opening paragraph:
In a stinging rebuke, the Justice Department watchdog declared Thursday that former FBI Director James Comey was "insubordinate" in his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation in the explosive final months of the 2016 presidential campaign. But it also found there was no evidence that Comey's or the department's final conclusions were motivated by political bias toward either candidate.
There is nothing about the Justice Department’s probe in this morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer. And it’s not that there wasn't any room in the paper – the exact same article about New Jersey sports betting appears in the front section (page 6) and the sports section (page 8).
Hey, aren’t we due for another one of those Ogden editorials that tell us how well they keep us informed?
