The Intelligencer returns to its old ways
The paper drops a critical paragraph from a front page AP story and publishes yet another editorial attacking the Clintons
More than just food stamps
This morning's paper carried a front page AP story about how Trump's upcoming budget would be unpopular with many people. The Intelligencer's headline made it appear that the cuts were just connected to the food stamp program:
Cuts to Food Stamps Part of Budget Proposal
The original AP article, however, is about more than just food stamps. Here's the third paragraph:
All told, according to people familiar with the plan, Trump's budget includes $1.7 trillion over 10 years in cuts from such so-called mandatory programs. That includes cuts to pensions for federal workers and higher contributions toward those pension benefits, as well as cuts to refundable tax credits paid to the working poor. People familiar with the plan were not authorized to discuss it by name and requested anonymity.
Unfortunately for local readers, that whole paragraph was edited out of the Intelligencer's version of the AP story.
Congress should investigate the Clintons
In what looks like an editorial left over from last year, the Intelligencer tells us when it comes to Russia, an "Expanded Probe Would Be Good." And guess who that expansion would include?
But a variety of other issues involving security and specifically Russia, merit more investigation, too. It is not necessary to note they involve Hillary and Bill Clinton.
They really do miss the Clintons.
