Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan, who'll host a national radio show when his term ends, made a tactical error in blasting conservative talk giants Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, according to Tim Graham, director of media analysis for the Media Research Center.

"This is not the way you say howdy-do and welcome," Graham told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Rogers, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said in an interview with The New York Times that fans of Hannity and Limbaugh do not learn anything.

"I think there is room for a more productive, you-might-actually-learn-something kind of talk radio in the marketplace,'' Rogers told the newspaper.

"I’m a bit of a canary in a coal mine," he continued. "And I am hoping I don’t choke on fumes at the bottom of the shaft.''

Graham said Rogers' dismissal of his future competition is not the way to launch a radio career.

"You don't come in and say, everybody else here is a moron, and by the way, if you listen to them you're a moron," Graham said.

Story continues below video.




On the surprise firing of New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson — who some believe got the ax after she complained about not making as much money as her male counterparts — Graham said:

"Liberals are very big about transparency about pay, they want to make sure that everyone knows how much everybody else in your office makes. Clearly that wasn't the way they wanted it at The New York Times."
