What's going on? (with update)

Why is the Intelligencer suddenly acting like a real newspaper (at least with Trump)?

Given their coverage the last two days, I was surprised that there were two stories critical of President Trump on the front page of today's Wheeling Intelligencer:

Comey Pushed Harder For Russia Probe (AP story)

Catching up

News

After reading a number of out-of-town newspapers for a week, I caught up on a week's worth of the Intelligencer earlier today.

Friday's Intelligencer goes into full-propaganda mode for the Republican Party

Trump, Cole and Morrisey -- did they miss anyone?

"Trump: Hillary Waging Costly 'War on Energy' "

This headline in a large font accompanied by a 4" x 6" picture of Donald Trump, dominates the top half of this morning's Intelligencer front page. The article, by Intelligencer reporter and propagandist for the fossil fuel industry Casey Junkins, covers . . .

Documenting the locals' anti-Clinton agenda 9

You can't miss it - it's at the top of today's Intelligencer front page. Yes, in a font size worthy of the end of a world war, the death of a president, or David McKinley speaking to a veteran's group, we learn:
