Intelligencer encourages debates
(except when Republicans are involved)
Today's editorial on having Democratic candidates debate isn't about West Virginia but it does illustrate another Intelligencer hypocrisy.

Tolerating the Intelligencer's Absurd Claims
Another week, another anti-Obama and anti-EPA Intelligencer editorial this time with an attack on alternative energy sources thrown in as a bonus.
