Yet another News-Register editorial lies about an environmental decision (with 10/18 update)

Because that’s what they do

Despite its title, "Don't Just Dismiss Pipeline Concerns," today’s News-Register editorial* primarily focuses on the recent vote to approve two pipelines by the Federal Energy Regulation Commission:

FERC approval came in a 2-1 vote by the agency’s commissioners. Two appointed by President Donald Trump voted in . . .

On the Vegas shooting: a News-Register editorial tells us to do as they say, not as they do

(Just wondering -- does anybody there actually read the editorials before they are published?)

The lead editorial in this afternoon’s Wheeling News-Register, “Wait For Facts On Mass Killing,” counsels us to wait for more information before we draw any conclusion about the Las Vegas massacre. The opening sentence tells us:

The only conclusion shocked Americans should draw in the immediate aftermath of the of the horrifying . . .

Project much?

The News-Register weighs in on aid to Hurricane Harvey victims

In an editorial, "No Room for Politics in Disaster Relief," the afternoon "newspaper" attacks Democrats for something the Republicans did with Hurricane Sandy aid:

Defending Capito

It's easy when you ignore today's early morning vote on health care

In Friday afternoon's editorial*, "Capito Position Remains Solid," the Wheeling News-Register acts as if today's health care vote didn't happen.

Coming clean on "clean coal"

Into denial, it's something Wheeling "newspapers" refuse to do

Yesterday's editorial in the News-Register, "Get Coal Back In Energy Mix," begins by praising President Trump for his efforts to wipe-out Obama's actions on the environment:

He is working energetically to win half the battle on that. He is rolling back illogical Obama-administration rules that were intended to . . .

Health care and hyperbole revisited

Can't we all just get along (by not criticizing Trump)?

The News-Register attacks Betsy DeVos

Despite having no experience in education, Betsy DeVos became Secretary of Education earlier this year by the narrowest of margins -- a tie-breaking vote by Vice President Pence. Until today, our local "newspapers" have published nothing but kind words about her. If you do a search on their website it yields at least a half-dozen . . .
