Another day and two more irrelevant Ohio editorials for the readers of Ogden’s local West Virginia “newspapers”
The first of today's Wheeling Intelligencer editorials is about juvenile crime in Steubenville and Jefferson County, Ohio. Neither Wheeling nor West Virginia is mentioned in the editorial. (Steubenville is 29.4 miles . . .
Today’s Wheeling newspapers: “We don’t need no stinkin’ landfill 34 miles from Wheeling to editorially attack when we’ve got national Democrats!”
After a 2-year absence, our local Ogden papers appear to have returned to their old editorial habits
Since 2017, the local papers have claimed on various occasions that they are “community newspapers.” On Saturday, the Intelligencer once again reminded us:
