Friday’s News-Register editorial: More laziness and no disclosure

No research

Does anybody at Ogden do any research before they write an editorial? I’ll answer that: apparently, not. Case in point – yesterday afternoon's Wheeling News-Register editorial on sports betting. For the sixth time, an Ogden editorial claims that the state’s take from sports betting is too small -- only 10% which the . . .

Another brick in the advertising/editorial wall?

No, there is no wall at Ogden

An increasingly important topic for media ethicists is the wall that should exist between news content and advertising; specifically, the important principle that the advertising side of a medium does not influence the editorial side. For Ogden, there’s not much wall – especially when the advertiser is Ogden itself.

Last year, for . . .

I'm sure it was just an accident

The News-Register drops a critical word from the first sentence of an Associated Press article on the Republican tax plan

The News-Register's page 1 version of the AP's first paragraph:

President Donald Trump on Wednesday will try to sell the American people on a Republican tax overhaul that his administration claims will generate a large part of $1.8 trillion in new revenue - a figure that a top Democratic lawmaker dismissed as "fake . . .

WV Republicans appoint Robin Capehart as counsel to the WV senate finance committee

Wheeling's ethics-challenged "newspapers" have no problem with an ethics-challenged Republican appointment

Today's Wheeling "newspapers" bring us the news that former West Liberty University president Robin Capehart has a new job as the lead counsel to the West Virginia Senate Committee on Finance. Capehart, who has been a long-time Ogden favorite (including a rare front page editorial supporting his West Liberty candidacy), held . . .

They sink lower and lower: a Fox News anchor demonstrates that he has more journalistic integrity than the Wheeling Intelligencer

(with evening update)

Intelligencer tells Congress to “probe Clinton”

Once again the Intelligencer demonstrates that its allegiance to Trump supersedes any ethical coverage of a story. This morning’s editorial, “Probe Clinton Link to Uranium Deal,” is just a rehash of their last editorial on the subject on October 27. Of course there is nothing new and . . .

Yet another News-Register editorial lies about an environmental decision (with 10/18 update)

Because that’s what they do

Despite its title, "Don't Just Dismiss Pipeline Concerns," today’s News-Register editorial* primarily focuses on the recent vote to approve two pipelines by the Federal Energy Regulation Commission:

FERC approval came in a 2-1 vote by the agency’s commissioners. Two appointed by President Donald Trump voted in . . .

No respect for journalism, no respect for its readership

Yes, it's another dishonest Intelligencer editorial on health care

From this morning's editorial, "Health Care Law Action Essential":

No one knows how many billions — more likely, tens of billions — of dollars have been funneled to insurance companies by the government, under former President Barack Obama. Much of the subsidy money was paid illegally.

"No one . . .
