So how does the Wheeling News-Register get a 1300 word article that features mostly Republican attacks?
The indictment against former president Donald Trump is sealed but that doesn’t prevent today’s Wheeling News-Register from giving local Republicans free reign to attack the prosecutor and Democrats. The top-of-the-front-page headline on this morning’s Wheeling News-Register reads:
