The Wheeling Alternative

Why did the Intelligencer wait until today to cover a Wheeling story that happened Saturday night?

If you turn to the "Region" section (page 9) of today's (Thursday's) Intelligencer you will see a story by Fred Connors: "Crowd Throws Debris, Slurs at Law Enforcement." Here are the first two paragraphs:

Attacking President Obama

Going to extremes

I don't remember exactly when the Intelligencer started featuring Erick Erickson's political column but he appears to have become one of their go-to columnists when the paper's extremist outrage needs to be expressed.

Another useless front-page story featuring Murray Energy President Robert Murray

When I saw the original AP story previewing yesterday's Republican dinner back on July 7, I knew it would be a front page story.

With an edited front-page AP report and an enthusiastic editorial, the Wheeling Intelligencer made it clear that Ohio Govenor John Kasich is their current favorite in the 2016 presidential election.
