Hypocritical and pathetic
Mike Myer advises us not to play the “blame game”
Local Ogden editor Mike Myer’s column, “Blame Game Is Severe Side Effect,” in today’s Wheeling News-Register, asks us to refrain from what he calls the “blame game” in assessing the coronavirus pandemic. Here's his conclusion which I believe adequately summarizes the point he's trying to make:
COVID-19 isn’t the first . . .
Trump wasn’t fiddling; instead, he was playing golf
Good thing there is nothing important happening
From the online edition of today’s Palm Beach Post:

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).

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.
