WVU news

football and coal mines, party-school rankings, salaries

An interesting coaching strategy

Yesterday, the WVU football team visited a coal mine:

Why a coal mine? I don't know. Perhaps . . .

Rounding up the usual suspects

A predictable editorial with a predictable scapegoat

After the Wheeling Intelligencer published four articles of questionable front-page news value in three days from West Virginia University's Academic Media Days, an editorial (or Myer column) was the predictable next step. Today's editorial focused on the first of those four stories in which WVU's President E. Gordon Gee discussed . . .

Mr. Metaphor strikes again (with 6/13 update)

More local front-page coverage for WVU President E. Gordon Gee

Apparently, yesterday was WVU Academic Media Day and our local papers sent reporter Linda Comins to cover the events of the day. The keynote speaker was WVU President E. Gordon Gee (who else could it be?) and thus his comments became front-page news for this morning's Wheeling Intelligencer:

WVU president spent $2.2 million in tuition money to pay for private flights (with 3/17 bow tie update)

The locals cover the China/natural gas story

Are we celebrating too soon?

A very large headline in this morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer proclaims:

China Making Moves In the Mountain State

The sub-headline tells us:

Deal hailed as major step forward for W.Va.

What’s “news” for the Saturday Intelligencer?

Yesterday’s “exhaustive” study by thirteen federal agencies that concluded that humans are the dominant cause of global warming? Or WVU President Gee’s rehashing last Monday of a two-month old study?

Today, on the front page of many U.S. newspapers is a headline similar to this one:

US Report Contradicts Trump Team: Warming Mostly Man-Made

That’s the New York Times headline for an AP article on climate change that begins:

A massive U.S. report concludes the evidence of global warming is stronger . . .
