Is this really a Wheeling “newspaper”?

Maybe it’s time to switch the quotation marks

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

Silvrback blog image

Since 2017, the local papers have claimed on various occasions that they are “community newspapers.” On Saturday, the Intelligencer once again reminded us:

But local matters - things affecting the everyday lives of our readers - were and are priorities at The Intelligencer.

That description partly . . .

Mike Myer’s Saturday column is supposed to be about “clean coal” – it’s really about getting Trump re-elected

When in doubt, blame Obama

In his Saturday opinion column about “clean coal,” local Ogden editor Mike Myer begins by rewriting the history of the Obama administration’s “clean coal” initiatives:

What angered many Americans about former President Barack Obama’s war on coal was that it was intended as a campaign of . . .

Forget market forces, it’s still Obama’s fault

Yes, it’s another Intelligencer editorial on coal

First Energy recently announced that the W.H. Sammis Power Plant in Jefferson County will close in 2022. Of course, this becomes an excuse for yet another Intelligencer editorial promoting coal-fired power plants while at the same time blaming the former Obama administration.

Why will the plant be closing? The editorial tells us:

Choosing winners and losers

Mike Myer knows his audience: Yes, it's another column that scapegoats Obama

Today’s Mike Myer column, "Picking Winners and Losers," is mostly an attack upon the Obama administration’s supposed “war on coal.” Of course, Myer totally ignores the obvious – that market forces, especially cheap natural gas, is the primary cause for coal’s decline. As Joshua Rhodes wrote in Forbes earlier this week:

Same as it ever was: missing information, no context, and it’s all the Democrats fault

Yes, it’s another Intelligencer editorial

The headline on this morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer editorial tells us:

Trump Clearly On ‘Dreamers’ Side

Really? How did the editorial conclude this?

He already has offered a measure that would allow 1.8 million of the dreamers and members of their immediate families to stay in the United States.

Sexual harassment (with 1/26 update)

According to the local papers, is it something only Democrats do? And is it all Obama's fault?

In a 17-day period two months ago, the two Wheeling “newspapers” carried 23 articles that mentioned John Conyers, a Democratic African-American congressman from Michigan. (See here.) In the same period, there were three editorials that dealt only with Conyers. Both the articles and editorials dealt with the harassment charges against Conyers . . .
