Martinsburg Mall makes Wall Street Journal

"Back to School for Failing Mall" was the headline for a short article in Wednesday's Wall Street Journal. The story explained how Mountain State University purchased the mall from the receivership holding the mall, Jones Lang LaSalle.

Does Martinsburg get any good press? The last big national article was in the New York Times about Martinsburg High School and the Times certainly made it sound like Martinsburg High was failing. Those of us who live here know better, but it's still irksome.

The attitude of the big media is that if it's in West Virginia, it's failing.
