“We owe no allegiance to any faction, special interest, political party or individual politician.”

Yeah, right. A look at our local papers’ coverage of the 2020 West Virginia senate race

Regular readers of Ogden’s Wheeling “newspapers” see them a couple of times a year (especially on the Intelligencer’s or News-Register’s anniversary): self-congratulatory editorials telling readers how “fair and balanced” they are. The News-Register quote in my title is from 2017 but readers can find similar sentiments every year – here’s a . . .

The Wheeling News-Register endorses McKinley. Why did they bother?

If your news source for local politics is an Ogden paper, you're probably unaware that he has a Democratic opponent

Does our local congressman have an opponent? Yes, David McKinley does have an opponent, Natalie Cline, although local readers would be hard pressed to find much evidence of her candidacy in an Ogden “newspaper.” In June, our local papers noted that Cline won the Democratic primary and would face McKinley for District 1’s House seat in . . .

Nothing to see here

Transparency? What's that?

At the top of page 4 of this morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer is this headline:

Fort Henry Restoration Awarded $1.2M Federal Loan

The article, a rewrite of a Manchin/Capito joint press release, begins:

U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., and Joe Manchin D-W.Va., members of the Senate . . .

Their silence speaks loudly

What have our local congressman and local Ogden papers had to say about the Trump/veterans story?

I assume (unless Ogden papers are the only source of news) that most of my local readers are aware of the national news stories that has probably garnered the most attention since it broke on Thursday – The Atlantic’s investigation of President Trump’s attitudes towards veterans:

In case you missed it: Monday was the Wheeling Intelligencer’s annual self-congratulatory editorial day

Don't they realize how self-serving this is?

Silvrback blog image

We see these editorials a couple of times a year. Two are definite: one in August on the Intelligencer's birthday and one next month for the News-Register's. (Addditionally, there are usually one or two self-congratulatory pieces during the rest of the year.) They all say the same thing about putting reader's first, . . .

Congressman McKinley and the US Postal Service (with some additional thoughts on socialism for the rich)

Our local congressman joins Democrats to pass a postal bill buts still finds a way to attack them

Yesterday, the House voted to support the U.S. Postal Service and local representative, David McKinley, voted with the Democratic majority. From WV Metro News:

U.S. Rep. David McKinley, R-W.Va., was one of 26 Republicans that voted in support of a $25 billion bill for the U.S. Postal Service to maintain services during the . . .

Trump and the U.S. Postal Service

We’ve seen Manchin’s perspective -- does either Senator Capito or Representative McKinley have anything to say about Trump’s attempt to sabotage the USPS?

Senator Shelley Moore Capito

As I noted Saturday, our Republican senator has said nothing about Trump’s attempt to aid his reelection by crippling the post office. However, it appears that the senator has felt some pressure to comment – or at least give the appearance that she supports the USPS. This morning she tweeted the . . .
