West Virginia Republicans get their revenge on public school teachers

Senator Patricia Rucker (R-Jefferson) named the new chair of the Senate Education Committee

Ogden’s West Virginia political reporter, Steven Allen Adams, detailed the Republican plans for the upcoming legislative session on the front page of today’s Wheeling newspapers. Most of the article is an interview with Senate President Mitch Carmichael who explains Republican legislative plans as well as leadership changes.

The Wheeling Intelligencer in August: “Special interests and powerful politicians seeking to influence us are wasting their time”

Yeah, right. Then why is it astroturfing us with a Koch-backed energy industry lobbyist pushing fossil fuel propaganda?

The quotation in today’s title is from an August Intelligencer editorial celebrating their anniversary. Unfortunately for its readership, their willingness to bow to special interests (especially in the fossil fuel industries) is once again borne out on its front page.

The morning paper’s headline read:

Report: Shale . . .

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?

Melody Potter, Chairwoman of the WV Republican Party, wrote an op-ed that appeared today in both Wheeling “newspapers.” The Intelligencer headlined it with

W.Va. Voters Can’t Trust Ojeda

While the News-Register used:

Ojeda a Tool of Liberals, Not A genuine Defender of W.Va.

It begins:

Have Ogden "newspapers" picked a favorite in WV's Republican senatorial primary?

What looks like a Jenkins' PR release is passed off as front page news

The front pages of both Wednesday Wheeling "newspapers" feature an article about West Virginia Representative and Republican senatorial candidate Evan Jenkins' efforts to pass anti-drug legislation. The morning headline states

Jenkins Pushes Anti-Drug Bills in House

The supportive article describes . . .

Not just the front page

This morning's Intelligencer edits and slants an AP sports story

According to the Associated Press:

David Freese thinks Pirates are not trying hard enough to win

That's the headline that most news sources placed atop the AP story about Pittsburgh Pirate third baseman David Freese. This morning's Wheeling Intelligencer headline isn't as specific:

Wheeling Intelligencer readers: you may think that you read an unbiased Associated Press assessment of Trump’s first year in office earlier today.

You didn’t. You read a highly-edited AP report that kept the positives while dropping most of the negatives.

Last night, the Associated Press assessed the Trump presidency on a wide range of topics as the president gets ready to deliver his first State of the Union address tonight. Unfortunately for local readers, the Intelligencer edited out much that was neutral or negative while keeping most of what was positive. (36% of the original article was . . .

The Trump administration had done next to nothing about the opioid epidemic

And our local “newspapers” have said nothing about it

Earlier today I googled “Trump response to the opioid epidemic” under “news.” (Go ahead and see what comes up.) At 5 PM a Vox article topped the list. The headline:

Trump’s pathetic response to the opioid epidemic

And the sub-headline:

The consensus from experts and advocates: “a lot of talk, little . . .
