Hey, Ogden Newspapers: If you’re too cheap to pay for a plagiarism checker, there are free ones online
I know, I know. It doesn’t matter if the article is a “cut and paste” job – it takes up space
This morning, with a few minutes to kill, I looked at some sections of the paper that I usually don’t read. One article on page five (it’s also on page 5 of the evening paper) caught my attention:
Choose to Use Healthy Words
by Carrie White. (She apparently writes a "Healthy Ways" column.)

In need of some good publicity, Wheeling Hospital’ cites a health study that doesn’t prove what the hospital’s spokesperson says it does; local Ogden "newspapers" oblige by putting in on the front page

After lots of bad publicity from the decision by the federal government to further pursue physician kickbacks at the hospital, some good PR was certainly needed.

The Wheeling News-Register gives the Green New Deal and Ocasio-Cortez a day off
Has O’Rouke won the Democratic nomination? (Did I fall asleep for 18 months?) And what happened to Ocasio-Cortez? (I thought that Ogden papers were required to run an attack on her and her ideas every day.) Wow! Even Hillary Clinton back in 2016 was never attacked four times on one editorial page.
There is not much . . .
As the Associated Press reported:
U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin is the only Democratic senator who did not co-sponsor an LGBT anti-discrimination bill.
The Register-Herald reports 44 Democratic U.S. senators and the two independent senators that caucus with them have signed onto Senate bill 788. The bill sponsored by U.S. Sen. Jeff . . .
