On Sunday evening, the Washington Post published another report in its continuing investigation of the Bransfield scandal. (See previous post.) This article examined the controversies surrounding the Diocese of West Virginia’s sale of the former bishop’s home in Wheeling. The article appeared in the Post’s Monday edition. Additionally, the . . .
Another weekend, another Riley Moore article
Yes, it's another weekend and time for yet another Ogden article about their new favorite, Riley Moore, candidate for West Virginia state treasurer.

How does it begin?

More love for the descendants of Arch Moore*
A year ago, the Sunday Wheeling News-Register published a front-page article about Riley Moore, Senator Capito’s nephew and grandson of former West Virginia governor, Arch Moore. As I wrote then:
Ogden political reporter, Steven Allen Adams, and the News-Register have outdone themselves with one of the longest front-page stories . . .
Zero: The sum total of articles in today’s Wheeling Intelligencer about the arrest of Rudy Giuliani’s buddies or their contribution to WV AG Morrisey’s PAC (with afternoon update)

McKinley sort-of explains his vote against VAWA

In need of some good publicity, Wheeling Hospital’ cites a health study that doesn’t prove what the hospital’s spokesperson says it does; local Ogden "newspapers" oblige by putting in on the front page
It’s not been a good week for Wheeling Hospital. After lots of bad publicity from the decision by the federal government to further pursue physician kickbacks at the hospital, some good PR was certainly needed. Luckily, Ogden Newspapers readily obliged by sending a stenographer, Linda Comins, to report the hospital’s spin on . . .
