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. If you go to Kiosko, you'll find that all five of today’s featured papers plus The Wall Street Journal placed it at the top of their front page. As the Associated Press headlined it in one of its many reports:

Watchdog: Comey ‘ . . .

Republican Deathmatch 7

Down the stretch they come and Blankenship is gaining on the leaders

It's appears to be getting very close

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:

The results of an internal campaign poll conducted for one rival . . .

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.

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 cable news to keep me . . .

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 . . .
