More misrepresentation and bias from the Wheeling Intelligencer
On page 2 of today's Wheeling Intelligencer, our local “newspaper” prints a little over half of an AP story that documents the feud between President Trump and West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. Comparing today's printed article with the Associated Press original, I found that the Intelligencer edited out a sentence explaining the . . .

Sorry, Joe, it’s doomed -- you're going to have to vote on the articles of impeachment
Senator Manchin has proposed censuring President Trump rather than impeaching him. (See previous post.) Here’s more evidence from The Hill that it’s not going to happen:
Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.), asked if there was an appetite for a potential censure, said, “No. Zero.”
