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 . . .

Yet another Ogden editorial that tells us "it's the Democrats' fault"

Because it's always their fault

The straw man is back

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.

Representative McKinley

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 . . .

Did Michael Flynn do something yesterday?

The story about Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, asking for immunity broke late yesterday afternoon. It made it to the evening network newscasts and was the featured story on the non-Fox cable news stations for most of the evening. If you depend upon the Wheeling Intelligencer for your news, however, there was . . .

"Safeguarding Our Liberty, Prosperity"

Hey, its News Sunshine Week and so we get to read yet another self-congratulatory editorial

Three or four times a year, our local "newspapers" praise themselves for unselfishly doing what is right for their readers (at least as they see it). Anniversaries of both papers' founding are sure things as well as "Newspaper Sunshine Week." With Sunshine Week upon us, today's editorial, "Safeguarding Our . . .
