Is Nexstar supporting Republican Patrick Morrisey’s run for governor? It sure looks like it
Nexstar owns four television outlets in West Virginia. (Local WTRF is one of them.) A segment from last weeks’ political interview show, “Inside WV Politics,” should make viewers wonder if it isn’t already supporting Morrisey’s run for governor. Watch as Nexstar political reporter Mark Curtis asks Morrisey a softball question while viewers get to watch video clips that supplement what Morrisey is saying:
(I checked: this and the video used in additional Morrisey tweets are in the actual program.) Where did these clips come from? Did Morrisey bring the clips or did WOWK insert them to visually supplement Morrisey’s points? This news segment clearly looks like a campaign ad – it is no wonder that Morrisey is highlighting this interview in his twitter feed.
Not surprising, there are no difficult questions for Morrisey from Mark Curtis in the five minute “news” segment. I realize that Nexstar is a conservative company but why are they interviewing Morrisey with pre-packaged material ready for Twitter feeds and campaign commercials?

That’s because Morrisey is still a toady:
And here is what Trump has been saying lately:
Yes, WV’s top legal officer has no problem with Trump's authoritarianism. Morrisey is pathetic.
