The Monday Intelligencer: Another recycled editorial and Steven Allen Adams writes about a popular meme that he says doesn’t make West Virginians look good
The lazy Intelligencer once again demonstrates its disdain for its readership
If today’s lead editorial looked familiar, the exact same editorial was run on August 8 under a different title. Once again, the paper shows no respect for its readers; filler is all that matters.

Breaking: McKinley makes front page!!!
Yesterday, I complained that the Wheeling Intelligencer had not mentioned local congressman, David McKinley in over three months. (105 days, to be more precise.) Today, he made the front page:
