So how does the Wheeling News-Register get a 1300 word article that features mostly Republican attacks?
The indictment against former president Donald Trump is sealed but that doesn’t prevent today’s Wheeling News-Register from giving local Republicans free reign to attack the prosecutor and Democrats. The top-of-the-front-page headline on this morning’s Wheeling News-Register reads:

This morning, not one, but two of the Intelligencer’s syndicated columnists suggested that it’s time for Trump to leave . . .
Four Republican constitutional amendments lose and this is their top story?
What was today’s top story in Wheeling, West Virginia? I think most readers who follow local and state politics would quickly answer “the defeat of all four proposed amendments to the West Virginia Constitution.” Why?
