Trump compares his impeachment to a “lynching”

Will the Wheeling Intelligencer finally criticize the president? Don’t bet on it.

A lynching?

Newspapers on the cheap (again)

Silvrback blog image

Today’s front page of the Wheeling Intelligencer features three pictures of construction equipment* that take-up roughly half of the front page. Two of them are connected to a story about the construction of a home improvement store at the Highlands:

Reporters vs. stenographers

Some thoughts on why our local media underserves us

The title of today’s Wheeling Intelligencer editorial asks the following questions about the abuses of former Bishop Bransfield: “Who knew? Why did no one act?” The editorial rightly faults the Catholic Church but shouldn’t West Virginia media be asking themselves that same question?

More "newspapers on the cheap" from the Wheeling Intelligencer: today’s Wheeling Intelligencer features some borrowing and “borrowing” from others to fill-up its paper

An editorial about local sewage from another Ogden paper 29 miles away and more plagiarism from one its columnists

Today’s Wheeling Intelligencer lead editorial begins by asking:

Newspapers on the cheap (the saga continues)

More examples of how Bob Nutting makes money in the newspaper business: a front-page non-story about an Ogden-favored candidate and two irrelevant editorials from Ogden’s Steubenville paper

(I most recently wrote about Nutting's "newspapers on the cheap" business model here.)

Breaking: Joanna Tabit continues to run for office

The front page of this morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer tells us that “Tabit to Try Again For Supreme Court.” In May of this year, Chief Kanawha Circuit Judge Joanna Tabit . . .

Still shilling for the fracking industry

A recent Intelligencer editorial tells us: “Gas Executive Right on Values”

Saturday’s Intelligencer editorial explains how new ownership at the large fracking company, EQT, cares about West Virginia. “Gas Executive Right on Values” tells us:

West Virginians are big on the concept of being good neighbors. So, when the head of the second-largest natural gas producer in our state talks about “old-school . . .
