Does anybody at Ogden do any research before they write an editorial? I’ll answer that: apparently, not. Case in point – yesterday afternoon's Wheeling News-Register editorial on sports betting. For the sixth time, an Ogden editorial claims that the state’s take from sports betting is too small -- only 10% which the . . .
Today’s Wheeling News-Register editorial reaches the “your mother wears combat boots” level of desperation
Wheeling papers continue their frantic defense of Donald Trump
While growing up (many years ago), I occasionally found myself in arguments with friends and classmates.

From the first paragraphs of today's News-Register editorial/lecture, “Don’t Be Used by the Politicians”:
