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 . . .

Propagandizing for the coal industry

A look at the Wheeling Intelligencer’s coverage and celebration of the Trump Administration’s override of the Clean Power Plan

National coverage --- editing an AP report

The front page headline of this morning's Wheeling Intelligencer reads:

Trump Administration To Get Rid of Obama's Clean Power Plan

and what follows is the first two-thirds of the AP story. Of course, what was dropped tells another story that local . . .

The Wheeling papers frame automation as “helping coal worker productivity”

Of course it has nothing to do with job loss; that’s always Obama’s fault

Today’s Wheeling "newspapers" have a front page article, “Technology Helping Coal Worker Productivity in the Ohio Valley”, which looks to have grown out of a Murray Energy PR release. While it appears that the article is about improved worker productivity, it demonstrates what increased mechanization is (and has been) doing to the . . .

It's distraction time

Reading the morning editorial

Former President Obama conducted a "vendetta" against the fossil fuel industry and West Virginians during his time in office. At least that is what a number of editorials in Ogden "newspapers" told us during his presidency. The reason for this "vendetta" was never explained. Was it because he was not from West . . .
