Newspaper war

Posted By on Mon, Aug 31, 2009 at 2:52 PM

By popular demand: Nevada's pugnacious Sen. Harry Reid has sent ill wishes to the major Las Vegas newspaper (owned by Little Rock's Stephens Inc.). The newspaper's publisher, Sherm Frederick, who oversees a number of papers in Arkansas, has responded in a column that characterizes Reid as a bully. 

In short: One of the country's most powerful politicians doesn't like newspaper that criticizes him. Fabulously profitable monopoly newspaper owned by billionaire complains about being picked on. I'm having a hard time finding a dog in this hunt.
