Is this really a Wheeling “newspaper”?

Maybe it’s time to switch the quotation marks

Another day and two more irrelevant Ohio editorials for the readers of Ogden’s local West Virginia “newspapers”

The first of today's Wheeling Intelligencer editorials is about juvenile crime in Steubenville and Jefferson County, Ohio. Neither Wheeling nor West Virginia is mentioned in the editorial. (Steubenville is 29.4 miles . . .

More hypocrisy -- Ogden Newspapers and Mike Myer on West Virginia’s drug crisis

They had no problem blaming Obama when he was president; today’s column doesn’t even mention Trump

A 2015 Wheeling News-Register editorial

It was the fall of 2015 and then President Obama was set to visit West Virginia, one of the states that was being overwhelmed by the opioid epidemic. On the Sunday before his visit, the Wheeling News-Register editorialized:

It may be that some of the drug addicts President Barack . . .

A look at an important health care story that was not important enough for the Wheeling Intelligencer

From the Associated Press: "Trump, GOP states ask appeals court to kill ‘Obamacare’"

Here's the first paragraph for this AP article:

Taking a harder line on health care, the Trump administration joined a coalition of Republican-led states Wednesday in asking a federal appeals court to entirely overturn former President Barack Obama’s signature health care law — a decision that could leave millions uninsured. . . .

Obamacare’s positive effects on WV’s opioid crisis

(This is probably the last time you’ll read about this)

A number of sites that cover health care are featuring a just-released study of Obamacare’s effects on the West Virginia’s opioid crisis. For example, Vox reported earlier today:

Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion is helping fight West Virginia’s opioid epidemic

It begins:

A follow-up on reactions to Trump’s executive order

What did West Virginia's congressional delegation and the Wheeling Intelligencer have to say about Trump's order?

What do West Virginia’s representatives think?

The Charleston Gazette-Mail took what I consider the logical next step following President Trump’s executive order to build his wall – they checked with West Virginia’s congressional representation to complement their national coverage. Here is what reporter Jake Zuckerman found.

Obamacare is declared unconstitutional but more importantly, our local community college has regained ownership of a city lot

Who said the Wheeling Intelligencer's front page doesn't cover the news that’s important to West Virginians?

Yesterday’s news event with the largest impact upon West Virginians was undoubtedly the ruling by a federal judge in Texas that the entirety of Obamacare was unconstitutional. (Hundreds of thousands of West Virginians will lose their health insurance if the ruling is upheld.) Here are the related front-page headlines from major U.S. . . .

Almost 600,000 West Virginians as collateral damage?

Mike Myer may get the numbers right but does he care what happens to health care in West Virginia if the U.S. Supreme Court ends Obamacare?

Silvrback blog image

In addition to discussing whether Senator Joe Manchin will support Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, today’s Mike Myer column wants to argue with the senator about how many West Virginians would be affected if the U.S. Supreme Court were to find Obamacare unconstitutional.

Myer quotes Manchin that 800,000 West Virginians would . . .
