Four lawsuits against WV’s Secretary of State settled (updated 9/19)

While other media examined the suits, Ogden devoted 665 words to WV Secretary of State Mac Warner’s outrage. (It’s the least they could do for a favorite.)

A short quiz

Here’s how several WV news sources headlined a story about the results of a lawsuit against the secretary of state. See if you can spot the headline that appeared on the front page of today’s Wheeling News-Register:

  • A. Ex-Secretary of State Employees Settle Lawsuits Over Firings

Morrisey chutzpah on the debates

Patrick Morrisey attacks Joe Manchin on the canceled debate; the Intelligencer covers for him by lying about what happened

As statewide news reports noted yesterday, a second debate will not take place because the Morrisey campaign failed to meet the necessary deadlines. (See next post down.)

Earlier today, Republican senatorial candidate Patrick Morrisey retweeted this from Nathan Brand:

West Virginians will see two senatorial debates

Did the Justice Department release something important yesterday?

I must be wrong – there’s nothing about it in this morning’s Intelligencer

If you watched any national news yesterday on network or cable channels, the top story was the same. If you go to Kiosko, you'll find that all five of today’s featured papers plus The Wall Street Journal placed it at the top of their front page. As the Associated Press headlined it in one of its many reports:

Which is more important? Police dogs and deputies in Bethesda, Ohio or Trump/North Korea?

At least the Intelligencer is consistent

The top story this morning in major newspapers across the United States:

Clearly, President Trump's decision to cancel the meeting with North Korea was this morning's important national story.

The top story in this morning's Wheeling Intelligencer was:

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 . . .
