The Wheeling News-Register lends what credibility it has left to yet another conspiracy theory

Forget Benghazi and Russian uranium deals, it's the "deep state"

Earlier this week, a number of congressional Republicans hyped a story that some FBI agents were part of a "secret society" that was conspiring against President Trump. According to two Republican representatives, new evidence had surfaced in a text message between two FBI agents that proved the existence of such a group. . . .

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:

Trump, the Republican Party, and of course, Wheeling “newspapers” response to questions about the president’s Russian connections? Attack Hillary.

Trump, some Republicans, and rightwing media are back to one of their old tricks to deflect the increasing scrutiny of the president’s Russian connections – bring back a previously discredited story about Hillary Clinton, Russia and uranium. Trump on Tuesday and Wednesday raised the point again followed by the usual suspects. Breitbart, for . . .

Biased reporting sometimes comes from what isn’t covered (with 10/20 update)

The locals ignore another important Trump story

If you get your news from any other source than our local “newspapers,” I’m sure that you are aware of the controversial call from President Trump to the widow of one of the soldiers killed in Niger. Here are today’s front page headlines from two national newspapers:

New York Times:

Condolence Call To Widow Ignites . . .

Guess where Trump will do a live audience interview and guess who will ask him questions

Answers: Morgantown, West Virginia and Sean Hannity

From USA Today:

Fox News host Sean Hannity, an unabashed backer and die-hard defender of the commander-in-chief, will get an exclusive interview Wednesday with Trump in West Virginia, the network announced Saturday.

The interview will take place in front . . .
