Did something important happen to Trump’s former 2016 campaign chair yesterday?

Trump-supporting Ogden "newspapers" once again demonstrate that what is not covered is just as important as what is covered

Today, two stories were on the front page of every national newspapers (for examples, see Kiosko.net or newseum): Former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort’s sentencing and the new charges against him and the FAA’s decision to ground the Boeing 737.

Today, Paul Manafort received no coverage in either Wheeling paper and you can find . . .

A follow-up on reactions to Trump’s executive order

What did West Virginia's congressional delegation and the Wheeling Intelligencer have to say about Trump's order?

Note to Representative McKinley: President Trump is upset that he hasn't received the Nobel Peace Prize

Maybe you should nominate him again

Last May, WV Rep. David McKinley was among 18 Republican congressmen who nominated Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize. (I wrote about it here.)

Has Trump abandoned “clean, beautiful coal”?

In his SOTU address, the president talked extensively about energy but never uttered the word “coal*”

The president’s omission was not missed by the media:

The Washington Post:

The Energy 202: Trump didn't mention coal once during his State of the Union

Trump ditches coal when hyping 'revolution in American energy' in SOTU speech

West Virginians still support Trump

A 60% approval rating (2nd highest in the nation)

West Virginia still has the 2nd highest approval rating for Trump among the states according to the Morning Consult’s monthly poll released yesterday. 60% of West Virginians approve while 33% disapprove.

The Intelligencer’s coverage of Trump’s State of the Union address

It's predictable: nothing on the Democratic response or any fact checking

Trump’s speech covered; Democratic response ignored

The Wheeling Intelligencer used one of the early Associated Press articles. Dropped from the original AP story was mention of the Democratic response:

Another Democratic star, Stacey Abrams, will deliver the party’s response to Trump. Abrams narrowly lost her bid in . . .
