Rounding up the usual suspects

A predictable editorial with a predictable scapegoat

After the Wheeling Intelligencer published four articles of questionable front-page news value in three days from West Virginia University's Academic Media Days, an editorial (or Myer column) was the predictable next step.

Attention Senator Ferns: Some teachers didn’t wait until November to remember

Please note how anti-union state senator Robert Karns (R – Upshur) got schooled earlier this week

“School Could Be Out Indefinitely”

With pictures of Ryan Ferns and Robin Capehart

The accompanying pictures explain a lot

This morning’s top-of-the-front-page story in the Wheeling News-Register is, of course, the West Virginia teachers strike which looks like it may continue. Under the headline are two pictures which probably say more to answer the “why” of the school strike than the 700 words that follow.

Quick takes
