Suddenly Senator Capito cares about what might happen if Republicans end Obamacare

Here is what I about wrote about Capito's position on Obamacare in 2014 when she was running for the U.S. Senate:

House Republicans, including Capito, have voted to end Obamacare at least 54 times. Earlier this year at her West Liberty University-sponsored political rally, she asserted that "everybody is unhappy" . . .

Documenting the locals' anti-Clinton agenda 16

More hypocrisy from the Wheeling "newspapers"

Yesterday, I documented how local Ohio Congressman Bill Johnson has changed his mind on the Trans-Pacific Partnership and yet the locals' front-page article about his views on trade said nothing about it. Today, both local "newspapers" featured a similar front-page story, "West Virginia Lawmakers Oppose Trade Deal," . . .

Covering Monday's energy innovation conference

It's a good day for local favorites McKinley and Capito (even if she wasn't there)

Covering the conference -- the Intelligencer and the Associated Press saw it differently

More on Capito, in-the-know West Virginians, and "the war on affordable electricity"

That didn't take long -- one day to be precise (see the last paragraph of the previous post). This morning's Intelligencer editorial is back to praising West Virginians for being smarter than everyone else and for fighting the good fight on the use of coal:

West Virginians were reminded Tuesday night of why, when it . . .

The local "newspapers" explain why Trump won't forget West Virginia

If you believe them, I've got a bridge in Benwood that I can sell you

For our local "newspapers," Tuesday was dedicated to selling Trump and the Republicans to the local readers. You couldn't miss it. The locals invested in a 600+ word, inconsequential , front-page article in both "newspapers"(taking up about one-half of the front-page news space) plus an afternoon editorial; both of . . .
