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 . . .

Wheeling’s “newspapers” apparently care about veterans

They have remained totally silent, however, when President Trump has disrespected them as he did this weekend

A look at the president’s Veteran’s Day weekend:

Saturday

On Saturday, Trump skipped a World War I commemoration ceremony because it was raining. As was widely-reported:

Today’s News-Register editorial may have reached a new low in callousness, taste and hypocrisy

And don't forget to subtract penalty points for not giving proper credit to Representative Louis Gohmert

This afternoon’s Ogden “newspaper” defended President Trump by resorting to the style and level of argument used by Representative Louis Gohmert (R, Texas). The Republican congressman from Texas is infamous for his racism, sexism, nativism, and fill-in-the-blankism. (Typical is when he wanted to make César Chavez's birthday "National . . .

From this morning’s editorial, “Pass Budget, Then Act on ‘Dreamers,’” in the Wheeling Intelligencer*:

Democratic leaders in Congress seem more interest in political grandstanding than in keeping essential government services available. Their demand regarding budget bills that need to be enacted by . . .

Intelligencer coverage of the Trump presidency

Still keeping its readers uninformed or ill-informed

As could be expected given its importance, major U.S. newspapers made Trump's divulging of top secret and highly-classified information their top story. As Kiosko.net currently demonstrates, the Trump story is at the top of the front page and it is the headline with the largest font on each of the five newspapers featured at the top of . . .

The hypocrisy continues

Rep. McKinley and our local "newspapers" continue to remain silent on Trump's executive orders

Indy 100 is out with an interesting comparison of the number of Trump executive orders compared to the number of Obama orders for the same time period:

Not surprisingly, there has been silence from certain quarters.

Here is one of McKinley's attacks upon Obama's use of such . . .

Taking the "news" out of "newspaper"

A look at today's Wheeling News-Register

National news coverage

There are no Associated Press or national news stories anywhere in today's edition of the Wheeling News-Register. While World War III apparently did not begin yesterday and President Trump refrained from personally attacking anyone on Twitter (Easter break?), there were important national and international . . .
