Where did the 100,000 jobs and the $36 billion investment figures come from?

Despite what Wheeling's papers tell you, it wasn't a WVU study

On Wednesday, the top-of-the-front-page headline in both Wheeling papers highlighted what looked to be an important story for the Ohio Valley:

Ethane Storage Could Bring 100,000 Jobs

The sub-headline further explained:

WVU study looks at possible $36B investment

And here is the story . . .

Applying the Hypocritical Oath

This morning, a Wheeling "newspaper" finally got around to covering the Michael Flynn immunity story. (See next post down.) On page 6, readers will find:

President Urging Flynn to Cut Deal

However, what follows is only the first half of the AP story. What's edited out, however, raises questions about . . .

"Safeguarding Our Liberty, Prosperity"

Hey, its News Sunshine Week and so we get to read yet another self-congratulatory editorial

Three or four times a year, our local "newspapers" praise themselves for unselfishly doing what is right for their readers (at least as they see it). Anniversaries of both papers' founding are sure things as well as "Newspaper Sunshine Week." With Sunshine Week upon us, today's editorial, "Safeguarding Our . . .

“All that the people require in order to arrive at proper conclusions is light and information.”

And the Intelligencer provides neither

It's the Intelligencer's anniversary and so it's time for them to tell us how great they are. Here are the two highlights from their annual self-congratulatory editorial:

Now more than ever, The Intelligencer strives to be the reliable, accurate provider of information for our readers.

Now that the lie is in place, the locals will reference it again and again

That didn't take long

The first extended analysis of a Mike Myer column that I did for my old blog was back in March of 2014. Myer had claimed an unnamed industry analyst (my hunch was that it was a Murray Energy employee) had told him that China was not the biggest importer of U.S. coal, Germany was. I found that difficult to believe given the country's . . .

Yet another ethically-challenged editorial from the Intelligencer

This morning's Intelligencer editorial follows the same playbook as last Monday's editorial on the WASPs : pick a topic that was not covered originally by the "newspaper," misinterpret and lie about what happened, and then conclude that it's all the Democrats' fault.

Today's "Ryan Should Take Hard . . .

"Fair and balanced" Intelligencer half-covers Alpha Natural Resources story

Edits out union response

Yesterday, I noted (see one post down) how Alpha Natural Resources was attempting to break its contract with the United Mine Workers after it gave significant bonuses to management. Today, the Intelligencer got around to publishing half of an AP story on Alpha on page 3 - buried right below the obituaries. However, the Intelligencer removed . . .
