Playing games with statistics

Another pro-coal editorial

This morning's editorial, "Paying Price for Assault on Coal," joins the long list of previous war-on-coal opinion pieces. Unlike a number of these editorials, however, this one cites some statistics beyond the usual "$1000 electric bills" that is sometimes used to support the editorial's points. Unfortunately, the . . .

Trump and jobs for coal miners

Trump's Monday energy speech

Yesterday's local "newspapers" used an AP report to cover candidate Trump's energy address. Consequently, they missed his comments about reviving the coal industry. (That, or they're saving them for a later editorial.) Other newspapers did cover them. Here is what the Wall Street . . .

It's all Obama's fault

Even when it isn't

For most Republicans, Fox News, and our local "newspapers," it's always Obama's fault. And it's always been his fault. (My favorite Republican example is the survey of Louisiana Republicans that held Obama, rather than George Bush, responsible for the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

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.

Here are the last four paragraphs:

Attacking alternative energy sources

(with August 26 update)

Yesterday's News-Register carried an AP report, "Obama Pushes More Clean Energy." This morning's Intelligencer did not carry the AP report but that did not prevent them from editorializing against Obama based upon what was in the report. (Just a thought -- we know the Intelligencer would never misrepresent what the president . . .

Koch-funded propaganda posing as a scientific study

The Tuesday editorial on alternative energy

The Intelligencer is once again shilling for the fossil fuel industry - this time in its lead editorial, "Ohio Right on Renewables." The editorial begins:

Renewable portfolio standards were quite trendy for state governments a while back. In fact, 30 states now have in place mandates that require greater use of energy . . .

Coal or renewable energy

Which has the more promising future?

Tolerating the Intelligencer's Absurd Claims

Another week, another anti-Obama and anti-EPA Intelligencer editorial this time with an attack on alternative energy sources thrown in as a bonus.

Yesterday's "Tolerating EPA’s Absurd Claims" rounds-up the usual suspects in order to attack alternative energy . . .
