A divorced-from-reality editorial

Another shoe on the wrong foot? It's the Intelligencer's excuse for more projection

From this morning's editorial in the Intelligencer:

Kasich on the front page

Yesterday's Intelligencer top-of-the-page headline proclaims the earth-shattering news:

Donald Trump, the Republican debate, Fox News, and Wheeling's "newspapers"

Fox News is now running the Republican Party. I am no fan of Donald Trump but it was clear from the first minute of the debate that Fox News had decided that Trump must go.
