Radio and Television Business Review took issue with Seventh District Congressman Roy Blunt's lament that the media was responsible for his loss to John Boehner in the majority leader vote last week.
"Implying that the other 225 Republicans in the House were dependent on the media for learning how they should vote is an insult to the members and attributes to the media much more power than it actually has, particularly over an intramural occasion such as this. Can you say sour grapes?" the magazine editorialized.
In its comments, magazine editors noted that Boehner was the subject of just as much scrutiny about his connections with lobbyists as Blunt was.
