Using the fear factor: Trump, aided by Fox News and social media, may be winning the battle for the hearts and minds of Americans

A closer look at the coverage of the rumored antifa rally in Wheeling

What happened

It was on local news last night and the Wheeling Intelligencer’s homepage previewed its coverage yesterday on its homepage. This morning’s paper made it the top story:

Planned Protest in Wheeling Canceled After Rumors of Threats

It begins:

A protest planned Tuesday afternoon in . . .

At yesterday’s coronavirus briefing, President Trump suggested ultraviolet light and injecting disinfectants as possible treatments for the coronavirus (with updates)

Trump covered other subjects -- his briefing is news and yet there is no mention of it in this morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer

Here is some video from yesterday’s briefing:

As doctors and Lysol were quick to point out, drinking or injecting a disinfectant is an incredibly dangerous thing to do.

Did our morning “newspaper” cover any of this? . . .

Coronavirus news and views from the Wheeling Intelligencer

On Friday, the Intelligencer wrapped-up a 7,500 word, six-part, front-page series on the pandemic

Unfortunately, it was the 1918 pandemic. Couldn’t this have been summarized in one story with the rest of space devoted to the 2020 pandemic?

Easter Bunny virus news

From Friday, page 7:

An update on the USS Theodore Roosevelt story

Despite more news and greater coverage, our local congressman and local “newspapers” continue to ignore the story

Just out, from the San Francisco Chronicle:

Exclusive: Coronavirus cleanup crews on infected Navy ship using T-shirts for masks

Yesterday, in The Hill:

More than 200 sailors aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt test positive for coronavirus

Yesterday, in Politico:

So much for concern for those who serve in the military (with update)

The Wheeling Intelligencer and our local representative, David McKinley, have had nothing to say about the Captain Brett Crozier story

I have a hunch that my blog-readers are aware of how Commander Brett Crozier was relieved of his duties for publicly calling attention to an outbreak of coronavirus aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt. In very recent developments, it was announced yesterday that Crozier has tested positive for the coronavirus. This morning, Reuters reported . . .

Lowlights from this week’s Wheeling Intelligencer

Intelligencer breaks its own one-day record for most PR releases passing as news stories

On Monday of this week, the front “news” section of the Wheeling Intelligencer published six public relations releases disguised as news reports. Three of them were from West Virginia University, and there was one each from a local realtor, . . .

Plain and simple plagiarism

Yet another reason to call the Wheeling Intelligencer a “newspaper”

Yesterday, the Washington Post released the Vatican report on former Bishop Michael J. Bransfield. (See next post down.) This morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer covered some of the findings of the document in a front-page article attributed to "staff reports." Much of the article quotes directly from the report – that makes sense . . .
