Friday afternoon's Wheeling News-Register carries another ugly anti-Whitmer political cartoon (#10 in the series) the day after a plot to kidnap her was broken-up by the FBI
As I suggested would happen in yesterday’s blog post, neither the morning Wheeling Intelligencer nor the afternoon News-Register carried what was the top story on last night’s network news reports and a front-page story on most national newspapers: the FBI’s thwarting of a kidnapping plot against Michigan’s governor, Gretchen Whitmer.. . .
Nothing out of the ordinary: just more Koch propaganda and the usual Clinton-bashing
More unlabeled Koch propaganda from the Wheeling News-Register
Yesterday’s News-Register featured yet another piece of Koch propaganda pretending to be a serious study. The editorial, “Cutting Back on Regulations,” references a recent study done by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. The study looked at the number of . . .

Why are they returning to Hillary? While I'm not . . .
For our local "newspapers," she may be gone but she won't be forgotten
What's a biased "newspaper" to do when longtime targets are no longer on the scene? Perhaps like Louisiana Republicans who held President Obama responsible for the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, they'll continue to ignore factual details and continue their hate fest. For instance, I suspect that our locals . . .
Intelligencer stays true to form
The largest headline on this morning's front page tells us:
Candidates Make Their Final Pitches
