Documenting the locals' anti-Clinton agenda 17

The Intelligencer makes major changes to a balanced front-page AP report on the election

Once again The Intelligencer has decided to expand its anti-Clinton agenda from the opinion page to include the front page. (Don't worry that the opinion page is being neglected, today's features this editorial: "Clinton Wrong on Critical Concerns.")

More hypocrisy from the Wheeling "newspapers"

Yesterday, I documented how local Ohio Congressman Bill Johnson has changed his mind on the Trans-Pacific Partnership and yet the locals' front-page article about his views on trade said nothing about it.

Big front-page news!

"Blankenship Plans Booklet Release"

This is the top story on this morning's front page. (A potentially catastrophic hurricane is bearing down on Florida but it could only make it to page 5.) Okay, the story does have interest for some West Virginian's. Still, someone needs to . . .

Weekend edition

Saturday

After Friday's "Trump: Hillary Waging Costly 'War on Energy' " (see below), Saturday became "attack Hillary/ignore Donald" day. A Google search of potential Clinton and Trump news stories yields numerous AP reports (see the polls below, for instance) that might have been used in Saturday's . . .

Friday's Intelligencer goes into full-propaganda mode for the Republican Party

Trump, Cole and Morrisey -- did they miss anyone?

"Trump: Hillary Waging Costly 'War on Energy' "

This headline in a large font accompanied by a 4" x 6" picture of Donald Trump, dominates the top half of this morning's Intelligencer front page. The article, by Intelligencer reporter and propagandist for the fossil fuel industry Casey Junkins, covers . . .
