“Think about where we have come from and where we are”

The Wheeling Intelligencer highlights the latest speech from Representative Bill Johnson

The local Republican congressman from Ohio, Bill Johnson, apparently likes to give speeches and since he’s an Ogden favorite, the speeches are usually featured in our local papers. Having some background in rhetoric, however, I’ve found that Johnson’s speeches (at least as they are reported) are not as well-organized and thought-provoking as . . .

Documenting the locals' anti-Clinton agenda 16

More hypocrisy from the Wheeling "newspapers"

Yesterday, I documented how local Ohio Congressman Bill Johnson has changed his mind on the Trans-Pacific Partnership and yet the locals' front-page article about his views on trade said nothing about it. Today, both local "newspapers" featured a similar front-page story, "West Virginia Lawmakers Oppose Trade Deal," . . .

More "fair and balanced" coverage from the Intelligencer

Covering the Ohio congressional election

Fair?

The Monday morning top-of-the-page headline tells us:

Johnson, Lorentz Oppose Trade Agreements

Despite the article's title, it's not until about halfway into the article that we eventually learn the trade views of local Ohio Republican representative, Bill Johnson, and his Democratic opponent, Michael Lorentz. (Before that we . . .

Big front-page news!

"Blankenship Plans Booklet Release"

This is the top story on this morning's front page. (A potentially catastrophic hurricane is bearing down on Florida but it could only make it to page 5.) Okay, the story does have interest for some West Virginian's. Still, someone needs to explain to me why the . . .
