Cheerleading for the president

The Intelligencer defends Kellyanne Conway

This morning's Intelligencer editorial, "Let's Put Conway Slip in Perspective," demonstrates how far the locals are willing to go to defend the Trump administration. Never mind that our local papers have had nothing to say about Kellyanne Conway's assertion that the Trump administration should be allowed " . . .

The hypocrisy begins

"Fair and accurate" are not words that come to my mind when describing the local "newspapers"

I'm in the process of putting together a blog post on how our local "newspapers" are covering the Trump administration. However, this morning's Wheeling Intelligencer editorial, "Media Not All Biased," has temporarily placed that post on a back burner.

The editorial begins:

Congressman gets a pass from the "locals"

How difficult would it have been to ask McKinley how he voted?

Representative David McKinley frequently makes it into the pages of our local "newspapers." For those new to this blog, McKinley is an Ogden Newspaper favorite and is regularly featured on the front page for addressing veteran's groups, winning bogus awards, supposedly saving hundreds of thousands of jobs, and going shopping. . . .

Making editorial space for favorites

David McKinley -- credit where credit isn't due

With Veteran's Day over for photo-ops and no additional fake awards to receive, our local representative hasn't gotten much local ink lately. Today's editorial, "McKinley Deserves Credit on Coal Ash," attempts to rectify that with a 300 word editorial praising . . .

Rounding up the usual suspects

Blaming liberals for conservative criticism of Trump

Silvrback blog image

The local "newspapers" have come a long way on Donald Trump. They've moved from virtually ignoring him and his more outrageous statements, to blaming Democrats for his existence, to emphasizing his pro-coal agenda, and finally, to their current position -- defending him and his actions. The problem for them is that . . .

Credit where credit is due

The Intelligencer holds a coal company responsible for clean-up

I've written numerous times about how our local "newspapers" have ignored some of the more outrageous practices of coal companies. I've also argued that they are not so much pro-coal as they are pro-coal company. That's why I was pleasantly surprised at this morning's editorial, "Ensuring Mined Land Is . . .
