Shorter Mike Myer: No one should question WV’s Supreme Court impeachment

Least of all a woman!

If you read Saturday’s Mike Myer column, “Conspiracy Claim Ridiculous,” our local editor argues that any argument that there was a political component to impeachment of West Virginia Supreme Court justices is “ridiculous.”

His target is former WV Supreme Court Justice Robin Davis who, earlier this week, filed a federal lawsuit . . .

Morrisey chutzpah on the debates

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:

It’s good to be home so I can read a real newspaper!

Away for most of the week, yesterday’s Sunday Wheeling News-Register reminded me of what was missing from my daily media diet

Quiz time

See if you can spot which of following is the largest headline on the front page of the Sunday News-Register. (The rest of the headlines come from the local news section of The Onion, the online satirical newspaper.)

Almost 600,000 West Virginians as collateral damage?

Mike Myer may get the numbers right but does he care what happens to health care in West Virginia if the U.S. Supreme Court ends Obamacare?

Silvrback blog image

In addition to discussing whether Senator Joe Manchin will support Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, today’s Mike Myer column wants to argue with the senator about how many West Virginians would be affected if the U.S. Supreme Court were to find Obamacare unconstitutional.

Myer quotes Manchin that 800,000 West Virginians would . . .

Choosing winners and losers

Mike Myer knows his audience: Yes, it's another column that scapegoats Obama

Today’s Mike Myer column, "Picking Winners and Losers," is mostly an attack upon the Obama administration’s supposed “war on coal.” Of course, Myer totally ignores the obvious – that market forces, especially cheap natural gas, is the primary cause for coal’s decline. As Joshua Rhodes wrote in Forbes earlier this week:

Mike Myer echoes the NRA: it’s not guns, its violent video games

Sunday’s Mike Myer column, “What’s Wrong With Us,” argued that it’s video games, not guns, that need restricting.

The beginning of the column attacks “Active Shooter,” a video game that will likely not be released. (It fits his thesis, however.) Myer then moves on to attack older video games like “Thrill Kill” and “Grand Theft Auto. . . .

"Why do we want all these people from 'shithole countries' coming here?"

Local editor Mike Myer wants to end racism but he (and his “newspapers”) have yet to write a single word criticizing Trump's racist rants

Sunday morning's Mike Myer column, “Let’s Find A Solution To Bigotry,” made a number of points about racism. After giving a personal example and acknowledging that racism exists in the Ohio Valley, he said that he wished that we could find a solution:

Racism is too serious to drop at that. We shouldn’t just be patting . . .
