Candidate Warren spoke yesterday to a crowd in Kermit, West Virginia. Here's the AP headline and story that ran in over 600 news sources in the last 24 hours:
Warren's opioids message applauded in hard-hit West Virginia
And here's the story's lede:
Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s plan to battle the nation’s drug addiction problem drew an enthusiastic response Friday in a small West Virginia community waging its own fight against opioid abuse.
Additionally, the Charleston Gazette-Mail featured Warren's visit prominently on this morning's front page as did media sources that use WV Metro News. Local TV station WTRF and West Virginia Media also covered Warren's visit on its newscasts.
This morning's Wheeling Intelligencer does not mention candidate Warren's visit to West Virginia. This should not surprise local readers: as with the opponents of congressman David McKinley, Democratic candidates are routinely ignored in the news section. The Democrats running for president can be found on the editorial page, however, where they are regularly attacked by the chain's stable of syndicated columnists and political cartoonists. Look for an attack on Warren in the upcoming days.
