Some thought on Ogden’s downsizing
Back in May of 2020, the local Ogden newspapers joined what was already a growing trend among daily newspapers across America, the elimination of at least one day of publishing each week. In Wheeling, that meant that the Saturday edition of the Intelligencer and the Sunday edition of the News-Register would be replaced by the Sunday . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .

The largest headline on the front page of today’s Wheeling Intelligencer’s tells us:
Simply The Best

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, . . .

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 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 . . .
