Sexual harassment (with 1/26 update)

According to the local papers, is it something only Democrats do? And is it all Obama's fault?

In a 17-day period two months ago, the two Wheeling “newspapers” carried 23 articles that mentioned John Conyers, a Democratic African-American congressman from Michigan. (See here.) In the same period, there were three editorials that dealt only with Conyers. Both the articles and editorials dealt with the harassment charges against Conyers . . .

Trump vacations

One more hypocrisy for our local "newspapers"

Silvrback blog image

The Wheeling papers have certainly adapted well to the first year of the Trump presidency especially on subjects for which they routinely criticized the Obama administration. For the year, the "newspapers" have yet to criticize Trump for his use of executive orders -- something that was a regular feature of editorials and Mike Myer . . .

Liars and hypocrites

Our local “newspapers” continue their anti-gun control crusade

Putting words in the mouths of local police officials

As I’ve written on a number of occasions, most newspaper readers read only the headlines and the headline on Tuesday’s front page article tells us:

Wheeling Police: More Gun Restrictions Wouldn’t Have Stopped Las Vegas Massacre

Most of what is in the article is an explanation of the . . .

On the Vegas shooting: a News-Register editorial tells us to do as they say, not as they do

(Just wondering -- does anybody there actually read the editorials before they are published?)

The lead editorial in this afternoon’s Wheeling News-Register, “Wait For Facts On Mass Killing,” counsels us to wait for more information before we draw any conclusion about the Las Vegas massacre. The opening sentence tells us:

The only conclusion shocked Americans should draw in the immediate aftermath of the of the horrifying massacre in . . .

Drinking the Kool-Aid

Poll numbers, swamp definitions, and hypocrisy

Myer reads the polls

Today's Mike Myer's column asks the question:

"Will Trump's Strategy Work?"

After reviewing November's election results, Myer wants to comment upon Trump's favorable and unfavorable approval ratings. To that end, he quotes statistics from Real Clear Politics which regularly averages . . .
