The editorial cartoon in this morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer:
Is there any evidence that dead people voted?
I could find no evidence of even one such occurrence. On Tuesday, the . . .
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.
Today’s paper is not about news; it’s about propagandizing for the Republican Party. There is little . . .
What a surprise: our local Ogden papers fail to report what may have been the most importance finding of the latest West Virginia Poll
Here’s the lede from today’s local Ogden “newspapers” article summarizing a new WV Metro News poll:
More than half of West Virginians believe the United States is headed in the wrong direction, the latest MetroNews West Virginia Poll said.

Today’s Intelligencer editorial page continues its “wide range of viewpoints” supporting Trump’s Republican Party
Last week, in one of its periodic self-congratulatory editorials, the Wheeling Intelligencer bragged about the "wide range of viewpoints" on its editorial page.
