Hey Intelligencer, your bias is showing

The Ogden campaign to defeat Democrat Joe Manchin continues

Since the story originated with the Associated Press, I googled a phrase from this morning's front page Wheeling Intelligencer article on Democrat Joe Manchin's fundraising efforts. The search yielded 121 hits at 11 AM this morning. By looking only at the headline, see if you can spot the Wheeling Intelligencer link on my screen grab . . .

Yesterday’s news tomorrow: the Wheeling Intelligencer ignores Monday’s biggest story (with updates)

Not surprisingly, it’s about President Trump

Yesterday afternoon the office of President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, was raided by federal agents. Documents were seized, and the president reacted angrily. The Associated Press’ first stories on the seizure appear to have gone out shortly after 4 PM. (Here is an early version.) Later that hour, local television news began to . . .

As Ogden's coverage of McKinley and Manchin demonstrate: it's not about incumbency, it's about party affiliation

The Ogden papers have dropped all pretense of fairness and objectivity

Yesterday, I once again documented how the Wheeling “newspapers” have totally ignored congressman David McKinley’s opponents in the upcoming elections. Today, let’s compare Ogden's coverage of Republican incumbent McKinley with Democratic incumbent Joe Manchin.

Earlier this week, the locals featured a story about a public debate (in . . .

Today’s Intelligencer headline: “McKinley Seeks Solutions To W.Va.’s Opioid Crisis”

Good for him but how is this front-page news?

For starters, the article's headline misrepresents most of the article – what Representative McKinley actually wants to know is why West Virginia leads the nation in opioid deaths per thousand:

West Virginia leads the nation in the number of drug overdose cases per capita, and U.S. Rep. David B. McKinley thinks the leaders should learn . . .

Have Ogden "newspapers" picked a favorite in WV's Republican senatorial primary?

What looks like a Jenkins' PR release is passed off as front page news

The front pages of both Wednesday Wheeling "newspapers" feature an article about West Virginia Representative and Republican senatorial candidate Evan Jenkins' efforts to pass anti-drug legislation. The morning headline states

Jenkins Pushes Anti-Drug Bills in House

The supportive article describes Jenkins' sponsored drug . . .

Time to look in the mirror, Mike

Accuracy? Fairness? Or pushing an agenda?

From yesterday’s Mike Myer column:

Some in the media, and that includes newspapers, magazines, television, radio and various internet entities, seem to care less for accuracy and fairness than for pushing their own agendas.

But our local editor doesn’t include our local papers in that group:

But the overwhelming majority of newspaper . . .

What important bills are being considered by the West Virginia legislature?

The answer depends upon which newspaper you read

There’s a media theory that argues that our mass media influence us more by what they choose to talk about than what they say about the subject. Agenda-setting theory, as it’s called, argues that that the media are important in our culture primarily because they tell us what we should think about rather than telling us what to think.*
