The Intelligencer attacks Obamacare (again)
The editorial actually makes Fox News look "fair and balanced"
This morning's Intelligencer editorial is another in a long line of unethical editorials which uses information not previously reported by the paper as the basis for an editorial written by a writer who then picks and chooses the information that best supports his/her thesis. (Note, I realize that this is an editorial and not a news . . .

Covering the Blankenship decision
A screenshot is worth a thousand words
A tale of two newspapers
Here are screenshots of the Charleston Gazette-Mail's coverage of the decision in the Blankenship trial (four full pages):
And here is a screenshot of the Wheeling Intelligencer's coverage of the same decision (nothing):
"When we err, we . . . . make corrections" -- Mike Myer, 11/8/15

Not surprisingly, the Wheeling Intelligencer was not among them.
Here is what the AP did:
At the request of The Associated Press, eight climate and biological scientists graded for . . .
More coal propaganda from the Intelligencer (with Nov. 21 update)
With conflicts-of-interest, flawed methodology and misinformation -- another biased coal study predicts rising energy costs
The front-page headline yells "Power Plan Hits Home" and the sub-headline warns "Would raise electric rates for residents." Yes, the Intelligencer's front page features another biased energy study. Casey Junkins writes:
