What is news?

A look at how the Wheeling Intelligencer and national newspapers handled the report on priest molestation in Pennsylvania (with afternoon update)

The top story on last evening’s network newscasts was the report from a Pennsylvania grand jury that Roman Catholic priests had molested over 1,000 children.

How did major U.S. newspapers handle the story?

Here are the headlines from this morning’s Kiosko.net:

The New York Times put it at the top of their front . . .

It’s old news but now there are pictures (lots of them)!

with 5:15 PM impeachment update

Silvrback blog image

The judicial excess that was practiced by some members of the West Virginia Supreme Court is news and it has been treated as such for the last couple of months. Does it justify half of this morning’s front page? Okay, there are now pictures. Was it that slow of a news day? I looked around to see what stories other news sources were . . .

Did the Justice Department release something important yesterday?

I must be wrong – there’s nothing about it in this morning’s Intelligencer

If you watched any national news yesterday on network or cable channels, the top story was the same.

As the Associated Press headlined it in one of its many reports:

Watchdog: Comey . . .

Republican Deathmatch 7

Politico reported on Saturday night that recent Republican internal polls suggested that Don Blankenship had made significant gains on his two rivals. A few minutes ago, the conservative Weekly Standard claimed to have the specifics:

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:

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.

The contrast was stark -- most notably on national news coverage. I've always been bothered by the lack of national news in our local papers and consequently I use the internet and . . .
