Are we sure Robert Murray (or one of his assistants) isn't writing the front-page stories and editorials for the Intelligencer?
The title for Saturday's anti-Obama, pro-coal-owner editorial in the Intelligencer was "Stop Obama Power Grab." Regular readers of Wheeling "newspapers" probably know that "power grab" is Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray's favorite phrase to attack the president and the EPA (although I doubt that he has gotten the phrase copyrighted) and yet Murray is not even mentioned in the editorial. (If you google "Robert Murray + "power grab (in quotes)" you'll get over 51,000 hits.) Perhaps to make up for the omission, the coal company owner gets quoted in today's front page article by Casey Junkins, "Prof: Natural Gas May Foil Clean Power Plan." For the Intelligencer, no article about fossil fuels (even if it purports to be about natural gas) is complete unless Murray is quoted about coal.
Today's headline is also deceptive - while Professor Michael McCawley is quoted, his findings make-up only 30% of the article. (Since he's also a scientist, he's also careful about his generalization - he uses the word "may" in his quote.) Most of the rest of the article goes to critics of the Clean Power Plan like Robert Murray, Howard Feldman, who is senior director of regulatory and scientific affairs at the American Petroleum Institute, and R. Dennis Xander, who's past president of the Independent Oil and Gas Association of West Virginia. (Xander has been quoted in previous fracking articles and, like Murray, he seems to have a way with over-the-top anti-Obama quotes.)
To be fair, Junkins does devote two sentences to the EPA's point of view.
