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.

The locals cover Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement

"Forget it, Jake. It's a Wheeling newspaper."

Covering the news

Editing out justification for the agreement

Last Thursday, President Trump withdrew the United States from the Paris climate agreement. On Friday morning, the Wheeling Intelligencer's coverage edited the Associated Press' report and removed the AP's explanation for why we had joined the Paris . . .

Reading the Sunday opinion section

Myer on health care

Mike Myer asks us "Is Health Care A Bargain?" In a meandering column (root canals, anyone?) with undocumented statistics and no acknowledgement that the U.S. pays twice as much for health care as most advanced nations with single payer/socialized health care with much worse results, he finally gets to . . .
