Harper blasts media, touts successes

NATCHEZ — U.S. Rep. Gregg Harper (R–Miss.) said Monday the national media’s obsession with controversy is overshadowing the many accomplishments of this year’s Congress…

…“The media is so toxic,” Harper said. “It is hard to get to the truth.”

Harper said more than 250 bills had been passed by the House this year.

“They have been good bills,” Harper said.

Many of the bills have yet to be taken up by the Senate, which tends to be slower to act, Harper said.
