Have I unknowingly slipped into some kind of alternative reality?
Earlier today, John McCabe, Editorial Director for Ogden Newspapers, criticized Fox News tweeting that the news channel was “garbage and an embarrassment to the industry”
I am still stunned. Here was McCabe’s tweet:
When in the world did this level of crap — “mannequin president” — become acceptable? Like @POTUS or not, think he’s doing the job or not, he’s still the president. @FoxNews is garbage and an embarrassment to the industry I give my life to each day. pic.twitter.com/pDDbr4qwPD— John McCabe . . .

The local’s editorial page gets into full gear
Joe Biden has not assumed the office yet, but today’s Wheeling Intelligencer editorial page gets our local Republican propaganda vehicle quickly up to speed with two attacks on the president-elect.
Ben Shapiro tells us to “Be Prepared for Media to Serve as Lapdogs for Biden.” If you read his column, Shapiro doesn’t go too far beyond . . .
Hey, was there a presidential election this week?
You wouldn't know it by the Wheeling News-Register -- most of Saturday's weekend edition is devoted to celebrating West Virginia’s Republican specialness
Readers who have taken my “quizzes” before as well as those familiar with our local Ogden papers probably got both of these right: Biden does not appear anywhere in the 6-page front section, while Trump appears 14 times.
