It doesn’t matter -- editor Mike Myer suggests how to bring them back to West Virginia
On the front page of yesterday's Wheeling News-Register, editor Mike Myer wants to “Bring the Kids Back Home.” Last January, Myer wrote a similar column. (No link – it wasn’t posted. I wrote about it here.) Like that earlier column, Myer has still not done any research into that age group or what they believe is important. Instead, the . . .
The congressman says different things about red flag laws in different parts of his congressional district but no one at an Ogden call him out on it
Five days ago, the Wheeling News-Register’s front page featured this story about West Virginia’s 1st District congressman:
McKinley Backs ‘Red Flag’ Gun Regulations
McKinley, of course, was following President Trump’s lead and our local Republican paper was more than willing to publicize how one of its favorites . . .

Another look at Bob Nutting’s similar business models for his newspaper chain and baseball team

President Trump on August 9: "On background checks, we have tremendous support for really common-sense, sensible, important background checks."
After the deaths at Sandy Hook in 2013, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin co-sponsored an amendment to expand background checks only to see his efforts fail as only 54 senators (out of the 60 needed) supported his amendment. Two days ago, on Face the Nation, he discussed working with Trump’s staff on passing similar background . . .
Today’s Wheeling News-Register features our local congressman and the paper’s editor on gun control
Representative McKinley is doing the same thing on guns as he did on climate change
Earlier this year, I wrote an extended post on how our local representative, David McKinley, had apparently moved away from being a climate-change denier. I argued that McKinley had changed his position because, given the preponderant amount of . . .
A story you most likely won't see in Wheeling's "newspapers"
The previous post looked at our local Ogden newspapers' largely-positive coverage of President Trump's recent
