Howard Kurtz notes the Republican candidates striking back at the news agency’s that snub them. Monday, Rick Perry went back and forth with Politico’s Mike Allen over a story on the DC-based site that claims the Perry campaign is extremely disorganized based on the corroborated testimonies of unnamed staffers. At the same time, Rick Santorum bashed Bill O’Reilly for not inviting the candidate on his Fox News show. “Life is indeed tough when you’re an also-ran,” writes Kurtz.
