Yes, it’s another editorial telling us how the Wheeling News-Register is “obliged to no individual, organization, political party or ideology"
Readers need only look at the next editorial for evidence to the contrary
Last month it was the Wheeling Intelligencer, this month it is the News-Register -- the anniversary of their founding becomes an excuse for a self-congratulatory editorial. From yesterday’s lead editorial:
We do not slant our reports to favor anyone. We let the chips fall where they may.

Trailing in the polls and with nothing positive to offer, the Morrisey campaign is beginning to show its desperation
I’ve noted previously how Republican candidate Patrick Morrisey’s campaign essentially consists of two elements: his total embrace of President Trump and the connecting of his opponent, Joe Manchin, with Democratic politicians that he believes are hated by West Virginians. While Morrisey's campaign website does have an issues section, we’ . . .
Why are papers located in WV’s 1st congressional district running a totally partisan political attack upon the Democratic candidate in WV’s 3rd district?

While other media examined the suits, Ogden devoted 665 words to WV Secretary of State Mac Warner’s outrage. (It’s the least they could do for a favorite.)
A short quiz
Here’s how several WV news sources headlined a story about the results of a lawsuit against the secretary of state. See if you can spot the headline that appeared on the front page of today’s Wheeling News-Register:
- A. Ex-Secretary of State Employees Settle Lawsuits Over Firings
- B. 4 Warner lawsuits . . .
Patrick Morrisey attacks Joe Manchin on the canceled debate; the Intelligencer covers for him by lying about what happened
I think psychologists call this "projection"
As statewide news reports noted yesterday, a second debate will not take place because the Morrisey campaign failed to meet the necessary deadlines. (See next post down.)
Earlier today, Republican senatorial candidate Patrick Morrisey retweeted this from Nathan Brand:. . .
The answer depends upon whom you ask

A recent poll explains why the Intelligencer didn't carry last week's AP story and map that showed a significant rise in local mortality rates from Trump's rollback of EPA emission standards
Last week the Associated Press provided a detailed analysis of the recently-released EPA analysis of the health effects of President Trump's rollback of Obama's EPA standards. (I wrote about it here.) The AP article included the above map which very-effectively visualized a key finding of the study:
