Anniversary time

Same old, same old

It’s August 24, the day that the Wheeling Intelligencer was founded in 1852. Of course, the anniversary is an excuse for an editorial telling us what a great job they are doing in serving their readers. In a long lifetime of personal and professional media observation, I have never seen a media entity praise itself to the extent that Ogden . . .

What's going on? (with update)

Why is the Intelligencer suddenly acting like a real newspaper (at least with Trump)?

Given their coverage the last two days, I was surprised that there were two stories critical of President Trump on the front page of today's Wheeling Intelligencer:

Comey Pushed Harder For Russia Probe (AP story)

and

Manchin Calls for Independent Prosecutor

And on page 7:

Republicans Question Comey's Firing (AP story)

And . . .

Catching up

News

After reading a number of out-of-town newspapers for a week, I caught up on a week's worth of the Intelligencer earlier today.

No "light of information" on Trump or Hurricane Matthew

The Intelligencer once again fails its readership

On August 24, the Wheeling Intelligencer used the anniversary of its founding to once again tell its readers why the Intelligencer is so important to the Ohio Valley:

Now more than ever, The Intelligencer strives to be the reliable, accurate provider of information for our readers. The so-called “Information Age” often resembles one of those . . .

David McKinley is upset?!

Note -- When the House Ethics Committee slapped local representative David McKinley on the wrists earlier this week, I decided not to comment -- in the great scheme of things, this was the most minimal of punishments and not all that important. However, when this morning's Intelligencer carried Mike Myer's righteous defense of . . .

"It's like déjà vu all over again."

- Yogi Berra

Silvrback blog image

Okay, today's Intelligencer editorial page looks like most Intelligencer editorial pages: it has two anti-Clinton columns, an editorial praising Shelley Moore Capito, and an op-ed piece by Intelligencer favorite Patrick Morrisey. If it looks a bit too familiar, however, there's a reason -- it's the exact same page as . . .

Friday's Intelligencer goes into full-propaganda mode for the Republican Party

Trump, Cole and Morrisey -- did they miss anyone?

"Trump: Hillary Waging Costly 'War on Energy' "

This headline in a large font accompanied by a 4" x 6" picture of Donald Trump, dominates the top half of this morning's Intelligencer front page. The article, by Intelligencer reporter and propagandist for the fossil fuel industry Casey Junkins, covers parts of . . .
