An anti-Hillary editorial that uses both
Yesterday's Intelligencer editorial, "Reject Clinton Energy Claims," is another in a long line of anti-Clinton editorials and it's use of evidence remains true to Intelligencer form.
Take this paragraph for example:
For many families, the cost of government limits on using coal to generate electricity already . . .
That didn't take long
The first extended analysis of a Mike Myer column that I did for my old blog was back in March of 2014. Myer had claimed an unnamed industry analyst (my hunch was that it was a Murray Energy employee) had told him that China was not the biggest importer of U.S. coal, Germany was. I found that difficult to believe given the country's . . .
The editorial is a prime example
The editorial starts by discussing a WalletHub study of state-by-state energy costs. The study found that West Virginia was the 25th most expensive state while Ohio was 17th. What appears to upset the editorial writer, however, is that California is one of the least-expensive states coming in at #45:

With conflicts-of-interest, flawed methodology and misinformation -- another biased coal study predicts rising energy costs
The front-page headline yells "Power Plan Hits Home" and the sub-headline warns "Would raise electric rates for residents." Yes, the Intelligencer's front page features another biased energy study. Casey Junkins writes:
