Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) apparently had some choice words
last week his home-state's largest paper, the Republican-leaning Las Vegas Review-Journal
columnist Sherman Frederick wrote that the paper's advertising director Bob Brown met up with Reid at a Chamber of Commerce luncheon, and that Reid told Brown: "I hope you go out of business."
Later, during his public speech, Reid clarified what he meant: That he wanted the Review-Journal to continue selling advertising, because the Las Vegas Sun -- which is a more liberal paper -- is delivered inside it.
Reid's office did not respond to a request for comment.
