Ogden’s Wheeling papers cover antisemitism
The front page of this morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer featured an article about local antisemitism training hosted yesterday at Wheeling’s Temple Shalom by United States Attorneys William Ihlenheld and the FBI’s Will Thompson:

A look at West Virginia’s “Best Editorial Page” as The Wheeling Intelligencer celebrates an anniversary
August 24 and August 25 are probably the two most predictable days on this blogger’s calendar. I’m in my tenth year of blogging and often I write about Wheeling’s two Ogden newspapers, the Intelligencer and the News-Register. And while headlines and stories certainly change from day to day, the Wheeling Intelligencer’s August 24 editorial . . .
More importantly, it is also intellectually dishonest
Today’s editorial, “Poor Timing at Play With Ohio Issue 1,” follows its Monday predecessors – it’s old and it’s from an Ogden Ohio paper. (In this case, it appears to have been first published by the Youngstown Vindicator over two months ago on May 21.) Most importantly, it wants us to believe that Ohio Issue 1, which will change the Ohio . . .

The Monday Intelligencer: Another recycled editorial and Steven Allen Adams writes about a popular meme that he says doesn’t make West Virginians look good
The lazy Intelligencer once again demonstrates its disdain for its readership
Steven Allen Adams blames West Virginians for . . .
Answer: A three-year-old editorial, an op-ed that hasn’t changed much in ten years, and the thoughts of a self-righteous Ohio legislator
Question: What can I find on today’s Wheeling Intelligencer’s editorial page?
Today’s only Wheeling Intelligencer editorial, “Freedom Is Key To Independence,” has made the rounds of at least twenty Ogden’s newspapers since 2019. The editorial is cliched and predictable; my hunch is that few readers actually made it all the way through this long, by Ogden standards, editorial. It does take up lots . . .
