Reading the weekend opinion sections

Nothing out of the ordinary: just more Koch propaganda and the usual Clinton-bashing

More unlabeled Koch propaganda from the Wheeling News-Register

Yesterday’s News-Register featured yet another piece of Koch propaganda pretending to be a serious study. The editorial, “Cutting Back on Regulations,” references a recent study done by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. The study looked at the number of states’ . . .

Updates on recent posts

Old opinions and Robin Capehart

Can’t get enough of that dated Koch propaganda

I’ve spent part of the last two Sundays checking the publication dates of Sunday News-Register opinion columns to see how badly out-of-date they were. (Most of the columns were at least a week old – I wrote about them here and here.) No sense documenting the obvious, I thought, and so I decided . . .

Old columns, plagiarism, and Astroturf from a Koch group

Reading the Sunday opinion section

You’re still reading outdated opinions

Last Sunday I wrote a post about how badly outdated the columns and opinion pieces were in that day’s Wheeling News-Register opinion section: a date check of when the columns first appeared revealed that half of the columns were at least a week old.

The headline on Thursday's Wheeling Intelligencer's front page story by Joselyn King tells us:

The poll was done by the Koch-sponsored Cardinal Institute for West Virginia Policy. Its findings were released three weeks ago. (Isn't this old news?) Usually pollsters publish their results but . . .

Catching-up

Reading the Sunday "Opinion" section

Editorial tells us that "NFIB’s Support Of Cole Significant"

What would you expect from a Koch-funded "grassroots" organization? Sunday's lead editorial tells us that the National Federation of Independent Business has endorsed Republican Bill Cole for WV governor:

With about 2,000 members, the NFIB is a true . . .

The Koch brothers look to buy themselves another state

WV Senate President and gubernatorial candidate Bill Cole speaks at exclusive Koch gathering for high-rolling political donors

Metro News had the following headline in mid-December:

Cole: Upcoming Legislative session ‘zero’ about run for governor

As they reported:

With the session less than one month away and lawmakers prioritizing their agendas, Cole said his mission is all about “delivering a subsidized session for the taxpayers for West Virginia and zero about me . . .

Koch money and the corruption of academia

Today's example from the Sunday News-Register - West Virginia University

Your reaction may be similar to mine when I hear or read "Koch money" -- I start thinking about the huge amounts of money the Kochs poured into the last presidential election in an effort to influence the electorate:

With most of the annual tax filings for nondisclosing nonprofits now in, it’s clear that no other conservative or . . .
