This morning, the front-page headlines at major American newspaper featured at Kiosko.net covered the concerns over President Trump’s actions in the Roger Stone case and his continuing abuse of power. For example:
The Washington Post:
Trump tests limits of executive power in settling scores
President attacks judge who will sentence Stone
The New York Times:
U.S. Lawyers Fear Removal Of a Guardrail
The Dallas Morning News:
Fight over Stone’s sentencing grows
Barr stands by Trump – at all costs
The Wheeling Intelligencer
There was nothing on any of this in this morning's Wheeling Intelligencer. Instead, the Intelligencer published an abbreviated version of an AP article that questioned the Democrat's choice in New Hampshire and an editorial page made-up of attacks upon the Democratic Party.
On page 3, we get the first 30% of an AP article about the Democratic Party:
Some Dems Fear Fallout from Sanders Atop the Ticket
Of course, among what is missing from the Intelligencer’s edit is material that the AP used to balance the article like:
Progressives argue the fears are overblown. Republicans tried to tie Democrats to socialism and liberal causes like Medicare for All during the 2018 campaign, they note, yet Democrats won a resounding majority in the House. And they argue that nominating Sanders could change the electorate in ways that help the party.
So, not only is the Intelligencer not interested in informing us about the possible abuse of power by Trump, they ignore the journalistic practice of balance in discussing his potential opponent.
If you turn to the editorial page, the assault on Sanders and the Democratic Party continues. Here are today’s three syndicated columns:
Think Before You Vote, Socialists
by Townhall’s David Levin.
Democrats Fall Prey to Radicalism They Hoped to Use
by Ben Shapiro. And
Trump Not Cause of Division
by Patrick Buchanan in which the Intelligencer’s resident nativist once again tries to scare white, European-descent Americans:
That Americans of European descent, 90% of the nation in 1960, close to 60% today, will, in 20 years, be less than half of the population, is for Democrats a cause of ceaseless celebration.
America, they [Democrats] contend, will be a far, far better place than we have ever known when a far smaller share of the population is white. The greater the racial, credal, cultural and ethnic diversity, the better the country.
This, according to Buchanan, is a bad thing. Hey, Pat: some Americans don’t care about the color of a person’s skin and where they came from.
