Once again the Intelligencer moves their anti-Obama bias to the front page
It also drops part of the original article which suggests Republicans might work with the president
Here's the first paragraph from today's AP story on President Obama's speech to the NAACP:
Calling it an issue America can't afford to ignore, President Barack Obama laid out an expansive vision Tuesday for fixing the criminal justice system by focusing on communities, courtrooms and cellblocks. He announced a federal review of the use of solitary confinement and urged Congress to pass a sentencing reform bill by year's end.
The story goes on to discuss his speech and possible congressional reaction on the matter. Here are the first two headlines if you google the article and the headline on the first Fox News link:
From Business Insider:
Obama has an expansive new vision for fixing the criminal justice system
From ABC News and the first Fox News outlet:
Obama Calls for Shorter Sentences for Nonviolent Convicts
And here is this morning's Wheeling Intelligencer:
Obama Calls for Reduced Sentences for Drug Dealers
Please note that the AP story mentions drug dealers only once in the 786 word article:
Low-level drug dealers, for example, owe a debt to society, but not a life sentence or 20-year prison term, he said.
Additionally, the Intelligencer deletes four paragraphs from the original: three of those paragraphs detail how Republicans might work with the president while the fourth notes that not all Republicans might be receptive. Obviously the Intelligencer doesn't want us to think that there are any Republican who might share the president's concern.
