What is “news” to the Wheeling News-Register?

It’s certainly not young people calling for change

If the Wheeling News-Register is part of your Sunday reading:

Answer: C, D and E.

Before beginning, a quick glance at today’s papers from around the country might be helpful. This morning, Kiosko.net highlighted the front page of the following five newspapers:

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"

Silvrback blog image

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 . . .

Today's AP article on the Republican tax plan must have been insufficiently pro-Trump

And so the Wheeling News-Register rewrote it

Here are the first two paragraphs of the Associated Press' story on the Republican tax package with the wording that was changed or dropped by the News-Register in bold:

Closing in on the first major legislative achievement of his term, President Donald Trump on Saturday defended the Republican tax cut as a good deal for the middle class . . .

Reading outdated opinion

If timeliness and relevance are important to you, ignore the Sunday News-Register

While reading the various opinion writers in today’s “Opinion” section of the Wheeling News-Register, the timeliness of the columnists kept jumping out at me. Delegate Tim Armstead, for instance, discussed Trump’s tax plan as though it was seriously being considered. It’s not – both the Senate and the House have had their own plans for at . . .

Maybe we should wait to open the champagne: more on the China/West Virginia “deal”

Sunday News-Register still celebrating

Two front page articles in this morning’s paper continue the reveling following Thursday’s announced $84 billion deal (to be more precise, it was a “statement of intent”) with China. The larger article, with an accompanying picture of a gas worker, takes up almost half of the front page:

Legislators, . . .

According to the Sunday News-Register -- nothing happened in the world yesterday or Friday

Our Sunday "newspaper" continues its mission of providing no or low information for the uninformed

If you go to Kiosko.net and look at the front page of today's major U.S. newspapers, you'd probably conclude that no one story dominates the news. However, most of the five newspapers featured at the top of the site dedicated major space to the following stories:

  • President Trump's attendance at the G-20 Summit
  • The meeting between . . .

News-Register ignores the story with the most interest for West Virginians

Hey, but how about that dog park?

Late last night the Republicans and Democrats got together and came up with a trillion dollar spending bill that will finance the federal government through September. My concern when I first heard about it this morning was, probably not unlike many West Virginians, the fate of the retired UMWA miners. The lateness of the agreement meant that . . .
