It’s good to be home so I can read a real newspaper!

Away for most of the week, yesterday’s Sunday Wheeling News-Register reminded me of what was missing from my daily media diet

Quiz time

See if you can spot which of following is the largest headline on the front page of the Sunday News-Register. (The rest of the headlines come from the local news section of The Onion, the online satirical newspaper.)

Reading the weekend opinion sections

Nothing out of the ordinary: just more Koch propaganda and the usual Clinton-bashing

More unlabeled Koch propaganda from the Wheeling News-Register

Yesterday’s News-Register featured yet another piece of Koch propaganda pretending to be a serious study. The editorial, “Cutting Back on Regulations,” references a recent study done by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. The study looked at the number of . . .

Old columns, plagiarism, and Astroturf from a Koch group

Reading the Sunday opinion section

You’re still reading outdated opinions

Last Sunday I wrote a post about how badly outdated the columns and opinion pieces were in that day’s Wheeling News-Register opinion section: a date check of when the columns first appeared revealed that half of the columns were at least a week old. Out of curiosity, I examined today’s . . .

Old Koch-financed poll results passed off as front page news

The headline on Thursday's Wheeling Intelligencer's front page story by Joselyn King tells us:

Poll: W.Va. Parents Want School Choice

The poll was done by the Koch-sponsored Cardinal Institute for West Virginia Policy. Its findings were released three weeks ago. (Isn't this old news?) Usually pollsters . . .

Catching-up

Reading the Sunday "Opinion" section

Editorial tells us that "NFIB’s Support Of Cole Significant"

What would you expect from a Koch-funded "grassroots" organization? Sunday's lead editorial tells us that the National Federation of Independent Business has endorsed Republican Bill Cole for WV governor:

The Koch brothers look to buy themselves another state

WV Senate President and gubernatorial candidate Bill Cole speaks at exclusive Koch gathering for high-rolling political donors

Metro News had the following headline in mid-December:

Cole: Upcoming Legislative session ‘zero’ about run for governor

As they reported:

With the session less than one month away and lawmakers prioritizing their agendas, Cole said his mission is all about “delivering a subsidized session for the taxpayers for . . .
