Has our local Ogden newspaper done the right thing, has it joined “cancel culture”, or is there another reason why the strip is not in this morning’s newspaper?
After reading about Scott Adams’ racist outburst this weekend, I looked for his comic strip, Dilbert, in the morning Wheeling Intelligencer. There was no Dilbert. The comic strip is no longer on the comic page of the Wheeling Intelligencer or any other Ogden newspapers. The chain, like hundreds of newspapers nationwide, no longer carries . . .

Have I unknowingly slipped into some kind of alternative reality?
Earlier today, John McCabe, Editorial Director for Ogden Newspapers, criticized Fox News tweeting that the news channel was “garbage and an embarrassment to the industry”
I am still stunned. Here was McCabe’s tweet:
When in the world did this level of crap — “mannequin president” — become acceptable? Like @POTUS or not, think he’s doing the job or not, he’s still the president. @FoxNews is garbage and an embarrassment to the industry I give my life to each day. pic.twitter.com/pDDbr4qwPD— John McCabe . . .
Is Trump done?
Maybe not, but it would appear that Trump has lost the Wheeling Intelligencer
I’m trying not to make too big of a deal out of it (I realize that it’s not quite at the level of Lyndon Johnson losing Walter Cronkite in 1968), but today, Donald Trump appears to have lost the Wheeling Intelligencer. This morning, not one, but two of the Intelligencer’s syndicated columnists suggested that it’s time for Trump to leave . . .
A look at Ogden's “Best of the Ohio Valley Award”
Is it an accurate reading of who are the best businesses in the Ohio Valley or another revenue-generating promotion from our local Ogden newspapers?
The largest headline on the front page of today’s Wheeling Intelligencer’s tells us:
Simply The Best
As the subheading explains:
Readers Choose The Best Of The Ohio Valley
Yes, it’s time for the results of Ogden’s annual reader survey of Ohio Valley businesses. As the article explains, . . .

More Colorado problems for Ogden Newspapers
With 11/2 correction
Are some of Ogden’s Colorado papers rigging their search engine’s results?
From Real Vail’s David Williams:
Let's just go ahead and call it "Search-Gate." More questionable Colorado news for West Virginia's Ogden Newspapers. https://t.co/jlrlOE4GJM— davidowilliams (@davidowilliams) October 29, 2022

Ogden Newspapers covers Trump’s Youngstown rally
Ogden reporter David Skolnick’s piece is balanced but does he tell us enough -- most importantly, what about the fascists?
Former president Donald Trump held a political rally in nearby Youngstown, Ohio on Saturday. Rather than ignoring the rally, today’s Wheeling Intelligencer used the story filed by a reporter from Ogden’s Youngstown Vindicator, David Skolnick. Skolnik’s coverage of Trump’s is balanced; it provides some of what Trump and Republican senate . . .
Whatever happened to Representative David McKinley?
Yes, he’s still our congressman even if he has disappeared from local news reports
Until recently, local congressman, David McKinley, has always been in the local news
Newspapers: Since David McKinley was elected to Congress in 2010, Ogden Newspapers have reported his every move and utterance. Whether it was a visit with veterans, a trip to the Highlands, or talking to constituents, Ogden was there to cover (and . . .
