Imagine a long editorial about how our country “needs to unite, not fight” without once mentioning President Trump
With only a week to go, it appears that the Wheeling papers will make it through Trump’s entire term without a single editorial that criticized him or his policies
Today’s afternoon editorial*, “Country Needs to Unite, Not Fight,” may be one of the worst-written in years. After a couple of readings, I was still not sure of what the editorial* was calling for beyond “uniting not fighting.” Here are the last two paragraphs:
We are better than this. We are better than a man waving a . . .
On today’s Wheeling Intelligencer editorial page, syndicated columnist Jeff Crouere wants us to:
Wake Up, America – Purge is Here
Crouere’s column rounds up the usual liberal suspects from Town Hall’s list of enemies: Hillary Clinton, the Deep State, Peter Strzok, and Anderson Cooper, among others. The column . . .
Our local editor asks us a loaded question to further the Republican cause
”Are you still beating your wife?”
How do you answer this question? Built into the question is a hidden premise: that at some time or another, you have beaten your wife.

The local Ogden papers continue their descent from “newspaper” to propaganda outlet for Donald Trump and the WV GOP

“Better late than never” from the mainstream media: most national media accurately covered “the most important speech” of Trump’s presidency
“Better never than late”: The Wheeling Intelligencer simply ignored it
If you follow national news, you’ve probably noticed that lately there have been some not-so-subtle changes in the coverage of President Trump's statements and speeches. For most of his presidency, the mainstream media have allowed Trump to make-up evidence, lie, and distort without much fact checking. The few corrections were usually . . .
Ogden “newspapers” to its Wheeling readers: forget about that landfill outside Steubenville, we now have a new president to trash
The editor of the Wheeling News-Register gives us an editorial preview of the paper's next four years
My hunch is that, for our local Wheeling papers, Joe Biden’s election victory over Donald Trump was one of those “bad news, good news” situations. The bad news for Ogden is obvious: come January, Donald Trump will no longer be president. The good news is that, at long last, Ogden’s Wheeling’s editorial page will have something to criticize . . .

Is there any evidence that dead people voted?
I could find no evidence of even one such occurrence. On Tuesday, the . . .
