Las Vegas Review-Journal to Harry Reid, D-NV, Senate majority leader (for now): Enough is enough, Harry, stop the childish bullying

Reid to Review-Journal advertising director: “I hope you go out of business”.

This newspaper traces its roots to before Las Vegas was Las Vegas.

We’ve seen cattle ranches give way to railroads. We chronicled the construction of Hoover Dam. We reported on the first day of legalized gambling. The first hospital. The first school. The first church. We survived the mob, Howard Hughes, the Great Depression, several recessions, two world wars, dozens of news competitors and any number of two-bit politicians who couldn’t stand scrutiny, much less criticism.

We’re still here doing what we do for the people of Las Vegas and Nevada. So, let me assure you, if we weathered all of that, we can damn sure outlast the bully threats of Sen. Harry Reid.

On Wednesday, before he addressed a Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce luncheon, Reid joined the chamber’s board members for a meet-’n'-greet and a photo. One of the last in line was the Review-Journal’s director of advertising, Bob Brown, a hard-working Nevadan who toils every day on behalf of advertisers. He has nothing to do with news coverage or the opinion pages of the Review-Journal.

Yet, as Bob shook hands with our senior U.S. senator in what should have been nothing but a gracious business setting, Reid said: “I hope you go out of business.”

Such behavior cannot go unchallenged.

You could call Reid’s remark ugly and be right. It certainly was boorish. Asinine? That goes without saying.

But to fully capture the magnitude of Reid’s remark (and to stop him from doing the same thing to others) it must be called what it was — a full-on threat perpetrated by a bully who has forgotten that he was elected to office to protect Nevadans, not sound like he’s shaking them down.

No citizen should expect this kind of behavior from a U.S. senator.

If he thinks he can push the state’s largest newspaper around by exacting some kind of economic punishment in retaliation for not seeing eye to eye with him on matters of politics, I can only imagine how he pressures businesses and individuals who don’t have the wherewithal of the Review-Journal.

For the sake of all who live and work in Nevada, we can’t let this bully behavior pass without calling out Sen. Reid. If he’ll try it with the Review-Journal, you can bet that he’s tried it with others. So today, we serve notice on Sen. Reid that this creepy tactic will not be tolerated.

We won’t allow you to bully us. And if you try it with anyone else, count on going through us first.

That’s a promise, not a threat.

And it’s a promise to our readers, not to you, Sen. Reid.

    re: #2 Charles

    If I have to choose between believing Van Jones or believing 9/11 Truthers, there’s no contest.

    Truthers lie constantly. It boggles my mind that people are willing to accept their word for anything.

    But what about this crucial sentence in the article:

    “He did not explain how his name came to be on the petition.”

    He very pointedly fails to says that he didn’t sign the petition. He simply glosses over that fact.

    I suspect he did indeed sign it, and either:

    a. Had no idea the significance of what he was signing; or
    b. Is now backpedaling as best he can, without stating any obvious falsehoods.

    So, basically, he doesn’t deny being on the petition, just that he no longer (and never did) believe in what the petition stood for.

    The Truthers have not been proven to be lying yet. Yes, they’re Truthers, and completely demented as a result, but he signed on to their petition, and doesn’t deny that he signed on to their petition, even now.

    re: #7 by Rodan

    I love the last paragraph:

    There is simply no point any longer arguing with CJ or protesting his bannings or all the rest of it. He is plainly an ObamaBot, as zealous a partisan as Eric Holder or David Axelrod, and it’s time to just accept that and MoveOn.org.

    Not much you can add to that…


  13. 13 | September 3, 2009 7:40 pm

    Since January, The Congress AND The Administration have started to bully any press that goes against them, and has started to bully common citizens who speak against them.

    The stage is being set for something big. Something so outlandish that the bullied press will not air it and the folks who discuss it will be seen as lying radicals.

    Something so radically socialist that it will be hard to believe that it happened.

    So, how did his name get on it?

    It’s extremely common for 9/11 Truthers, creationists, and anti-AGW groups to add prominent people’s names to lists like this without their knowledge.

    Show of hands: Who here had ever heard of Van Jones in 2004, which is apparently when that petition was signed?

    that said,the fairness doctrine is a scary thing and should be fought at all costs. why cant the stations just ignore the order from the fcc. if they all (or a majority) do then the order is useless and could be used against the government in a very real way as in many very public, sit in-free speech protests.

    If the radio stations are forced to get him off the air to make room for ‘local’ (i.e, liberal local pipsqueaks who whine about not being able to marry their same-sex partners and not having free healthcare to support their illegal drug habit) folks, then we will ONLY be able to listen to him on the internet.

    If Rush were forced off the air, I can just about guarantee that he’d end up on Sirius within a week.

    If half his audience bought Sirius subscriptions as a result, it would solve Sirius’ cash flow problems, as well.

    And then, the FCC will come up with a rationale for regulating satellite radio…

    Zombie is not believable then. sort of sad. Made a couple of good life point stories that Sharmuta and Charles preferred to gloss over.

    This is a constant theme with Sharmuta. All the other posters on LGF are dumbasses. She’ll be nice to someone for awhile but you can see she is just boiling with feigned offense. I myself think Charles’ precision on Vlaams Belang past and imprecision on Van Jones past questions his credibility. He is acting much like Van Jones.

    Sharmuta is not thinking here before she types. just reacting to something not logical. Keep that in mind when she makes a point. I have seen her do this several times.

    Yes Charles and Sharmuta are now constantly berating the comprehension of the blogging community there. IF that is not cult like behavior I don’t know what is. I believe they are doing this on purpose to root out trolls. But everyone is guilty til proven innocent.

    Charles was shocked that no one down dinged the Mad Mullah comment. Then some people went and did so. Charles inspired downdings to shore up his perceptions on racism. The dinging system is a card check activity.

    Sharmuta doesn’t value the community at LGF.

    Iceweasel is just a tough obnoxious read. I agree with the poster that told her she needed more life experience. She lacks a lot of wisdom.

    Some possibilities:

    2. He becomes even more irrational in his spinning and a bunch of people quit in protest.
    3. He shuts down the site in protest was a possibility suggested by Macker. Given the level of crazy over there, I wouldn’t be surprised.

    Why doesn’t he just come out and admit he supports Obama and is now shilling for him.

    You are grasping at straws.

    I don’t see how. The document places Jones at the cusp of Trutherism; it’s not such a stretch to see how he could take the extra half-step to signing that petition (or allowing his name to be put on it).

    I never imagined this issue would grow so huge. I have personal knowledge about Jones that I’m loathe to reveal in public which puts him all over the truther scene and other bizarre conspiracy scenes. I don’t know about this petition specifically, but I have with my own eyes seen Jones at Truther events. Problem is, I can’t prove it -- at least without exposing myself. So I will remain mute on the subject.

    I don’t trust zombie. Too often these days I find him to be dangerously close to the Pamela Geller/ Glenn Beck type hysterics. That whole Holdren piece, for example -- just woeful.

    Not just the Holdren piece. This recent nonsense of claiming that there aren’t more threats to Obama, or that threats to Bush were underreported by the media, or that threats to Bush were not as vigorously pursued by the Secret service-- because they weren’t reported by the media. Huh? If the Secret Service relies on the media for clues about who to investiagte we’re in deeper shit than I thought.

    Without a statement from the Secret Service zombie has no basis whatsoever for making those claims. Although it’s difficult to tell exactly what claims zombie intends to make in those posts, because he changes his mind all the time.

    Apparently zombie did good work at one point taking pictures of the fringe left and rallies. Good for him.

    But these recent posts make it look less like zombie is interested in citizen journalism or exposing the fringe than in pushing a partisan agenda, and that’s a shame. The recent posts about Bush threats in particular. I fail to see the relevance of pointing out that the left went crazy over Bush-- except as a way of somehow downplaying, justifying, or minimising the crazy happening on the right at the moment. It’s not 2002, 2004, or 2006 any more.

    Lending credence to this Van Jones conspiracy stuff is just more evidence of that partisan agenda, in my opinion. And that’s a shame. I’d rather see someone who can point out the lunacy on both sides, and doesn’t develop a mysterious blind spot for only one.

    I just realized that one of our resident pot-stirrers, Champion, is right! Some of us spend waaay too much energy posting about 1.0.

    You have just nailed it for me Island:

    I’m hoping that this will be the catharsis we need to let “LittleGreenFootballs” go off and be forgotten, never to be mentioned again. It’s like talking about the EX-wife/husband that screwed you over……one day, your tired of it and it’s finished.
    The opposite of love is apathy, not ha

    LGF is the ex-wife that I cannot stop talking about in mixed company. Damn I wish I had come up with that analogy.

    I think a lot of 1.0ers would fit in fine here. Having said that, I think there are some big problems with some of the things that go on here. If some of the more flamboyant Blogmocracy posters can be convinced to temper their comments I think 2.0 can truly be a refuge of the “banned”.

    Just my opinion….

    Well Ma Sands, I must confess that I would rather listen to Jazz lite any day over “patriotic music”. Sorry, not to trying to be difficult but these days “patriotic” music means contemporary country music with predictable lyrics. If you like that, fine. I just prefer different music.

    Charles it has now been 2 1/2 since you first suggested that I supported the BNP and 2 hours and ten minutes since I first requested a retraction. I have repeated these requests several times and have been totally ignored.

    I now formally request an apology from you for the suggestion that I support the BNP or that I wrote in the support of the BNP on a post on this blog. I further formally request a retraction of your comment # 369.

    It is now 1:18 a.m. here in Massachusetts, I’ll wait another 12 minutes or so and if I receive no reply I will demand both the apology and a retraction from a post I have written on my own blog which will go up at that time. If I receive satisfaction before that time I will delete said post unpublished.

    As this is your blog and it is certainly your right to ignore me if you so choose. That’s why I have phrased this as a request. It’s your blog and your rules but I won’t be called a supporter of a Racist/Fascist group like the BNP without answering such a slander.

    I do think it’s interesting that they can have over 1200 posts on a thread about something as stupid as whether or not Van Jones signed a petition 5 years ago, but everyone seems perfectly fine with the fact that he’s a race-baiting Marxist.

    Good to see they have their priorities straight over there…

    Interesting thread.

    I’m just a little surprised at one thing:

    Huh?

    “Weeks” after 9/11, were there any remotely SANE people who thought the WTC had been “bombed”?!

    If you really want to debate this, it’s not hard to argue that the planes that struck the WTC towers were themselves huge bombs full of jet fuel.

    And yes, I still see people referring to the “bombing” of the WTC. It’s imprecise, sure, but it’s certainly not evidence that these people are Truthers

    I know CJ’s not admitting to being a Truther but why parse the comments of a Truther in order to justify your offensive against said Truther’s critics?
