Blaming Obama for West Virginia's drug problem
Has the Wheeling News-Register reached a new low?
From yesterday's editorial in the Wheeling News-Register:
It may be that some of the drug addicts President Barack Obama hears about when he visits West Virginia on Wednesday began using cocaine, heroin, pain pills or other controlled substances because of action by his administration.
We do not engage lightly in such speculation. . . .
Its "speculation" because there is no evidence and because blaming the president plays so nicely to the basest fears and prejudices of a segment of the newspaper's core readership. But that's what the Wheeling "newspapers" do.
