Today's Wheeling Intelligencer editorial makes up stuff to prove that radicals have taken control of the Democratic Party

They claim this even though Ohio Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown refuted the Intelligencer's and others' “concern troll” points yesterday

The editorial

This morning’s editorial, “Ultra-Leftists Gain Control of Party,” starts by expressing sympathy for Ohio Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown. Brown had been considering running for president but decided last Thursday against it. According to the editorial, Brown chose not to run because extremists have taken over . . .

The Intelligencer, out of its concern for the poor, editorializes that plastic bags should not be banned

Silvrback blog image

Yes, my bridge is still for sale.

This morning's Wheeling Intelligencer editorial, “Plastic Bag Fees Not Good Idea,” argues that a plastic bag fee at Ohio’s grocery stores would put an unfair burden upon the poor and it chastises liberals for even suggesting the idea.

The editorial points to . . .

From today’s Wheeling Intelligencer editorial: “This is not a political issue”

It never is when Republicans are at fault*

I seldom comment upon local editorials about Ohio politics. (Ogden editorials about West Virginia politics are usually more than enough to keep me busy.) A sentence in the editorial, “Probe Charter School Fiasco,” caught my attention, however, and I couldn’t let it go by without some research and comments.

The editorial is about a . . .

Does today's pro-Warner editorial actually show some insight and honesty?

(Yes, a little insight and some inadvertent honesty)

No Warner news story but we do get the inevitable editorial

Regular readers of the Wheeling Intelligencer knew it was coming. In the absence of any actual news coverage of West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner just having cost the state a couple of million dollars (see previous two posts), we instead get an editorial defending . . .

Yes, it's the obvious reason

A recent poll explains why the Intelligencer didn't carry last week's AP story and map that showed a significant rise in local mortality rates from Trump's rollback of EPA emission standards

Silvrback blog image

Last week the Associated Press provided a detailed analysis of the recently-released EPA analysis of the health effects of President Trump's rollback of Obama's EPA standards. (I wrote about it here.) The AP article included the above map which very-effectively visualized a key finding of the study:

Nationally, . . .

Hey, what happened to the Wheeling Intelligencer’s “light and information” anniversary editorial?

Answer: The self-serving parts are still there but the paper has rebranded itself as “a community newspaper”

For the first time in years, the Wheeling Intelligencer editorial on the anniversary of its founding does not mention the promise to provide “light and information.” Instead, the paper has rebranded itself as a community newspaper. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, to rebrand is

to change the way that an organization, . . .

This morning's Intelligencer editorial thinks that West Virginia should "Clean Up Court Without Politics"

Silvrback blog image

On Thursday, I wrote about how rejected Republican senatorial candidate, Nobel-Peace-Prize-for-Trump booster, and West Virginia's current 3rd District Congressman, Evan Jenkins, was considering a run for West Virginia's Supreme Court. (See next post down.) I assumed that the Wheeling Intelligencer would cover that news on . . .
