Does the Intelligencer support the Trump assertion that the election is rigged? (with 10/21 update)

Covering last night's debate

At 9:30 this morning I turned to Kiosko.net to see how American newspapers were handling last night's debate. (Kiosko prints the front page of major newspapers.) The website usually features some of America's most read newspapers at the top of the page and here are their headlines:

Lying about the president and alternative energy sources

Just another Intelligencer editorial

Yesterday's editorial is a two-for-one. Not only does the editorial purposely distort for its own purposes President Obama's use of the word "crazy," it lies about the use of alternatives.

Once again the Intelligencer moves their anti-Obama bias to the front page

It also drops part of the original article which suggests Republicans might work with the president

Here's the first paragraph from today's AP story on President Obama's speech to the NAACP:

Calling it an issue America can't afford to ignore, President Barack Obama laid out an expansive vision Tuesday for fixing the criminal justice system by focusing on communities, courtrooms and cellblocks. He announced a . . .

Myer begins coverage of Benjamin's re-election campaign

Benjamin probably won't get $3 million from Blankenship this time

The 2nd half of today's Mike Myer column marks the opening salvo in the Intelligencer's attempt to get State Supreme Court Justice Brent Benjamin re-elected.

Myer, without going into very many specifics, defends Benjamin from conservative criticism of a decision in which he was a part of a court majority that allowed drug addicts . . .

As predicted, the court throws out AG's suit against the EPA

Publicity is good for Morissey's gubernatorial run, however

On Tuesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit tossed out the lawsuit brought by 15 coal states led by WV's AG Patrick Morissey and Murray Energy against the EPA's Clean Power Plan:

The Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia threw out a lawsuit that challenged the Environmental Protection Agency’s . . .
