Reid To Newspaper: “I Hope You Go Out of Business”

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.

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.
