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:

UPDATE: President Donald Trump, back at his Mar-a-Lago estate Sunday afternoon after going to his West Palm Beach-area golf course earlier, defended his administration’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, then took a dig at a familiar foe, the New York Times.

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:

Trump has faced widespread criticism over his decision not to attend the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial over the weekend as world . . .

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 . . .
