Reading the weekend opinion sections

Nothing out of the ordinary: just more Koch propaganda and the usual Clinton-bashing

More unlabeled Koch propaganda from the Wheeling News-Register

Yesterday’s News-Register featured yet another piece of Koch propaganda pretending to be a serious study. The editorial, “Cutting Back on Regulations,” references a recent study done by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. The study looked at the number of . . .

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 . . .

Shilling for Trump

Today's News-Register editorial: Hillary's not president but she still needs to be investigated

From an editorial, "Investigate Clinton Ties to Russia, Too," in the afternoon Wheeling News-Register:

Why are they returning to Hillary? While I'm not . . .

Documenting the locals' anti-Clinton agenda 20

For our local "newspapers," she may be gone but she won't be forgotten

What's a biased "newspaper" to do when longtime targets are no longer on the scene? Perhaps like Louisiana Republicans who held President Obama responsible for the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, they'll continue to ignore factual details and continue their hate fest. For instance, I suspect that our locals . . .

Election Day odds and ends

Intelligencer stays true to form

The largest headline on this morning's front page tells us:

Candidates Make Their Final Pitches

The report is yet another example of the Intelligencer's "fair-and-balanced" political reporting: a little over 20% of the article covers the Democrats as most . . .

Documenting the anti-Clinton agenda 19

Hillary's "master plan"

Egads, the lengths the Intelligencer will go to attack Hillary Clinton. In today's editorial, we learn the Clinton has a "master plan" for "Pitting Ohio Voters Against Each Other." What's the plan?

Pitting rural Ohioans against urban dwellers is part of Clinton's master plan.
