<p>Two journalists on the 25 September 2015 edition of <i>NBC Nightly News</i> played up how the supposed "far right" of the Republican Party pushed out Rep. John Boehner, who announced earlier in the day that he would be stepping down as Speaker of the House. Lester Holt underlined that Boehner is "resigning from Congress at the end of next month in the face of a challenge from members of the far right of his party, who believe he's gone soft on Democrats."</p>
<p>Joe Scarborough later cited how when House Republicans "ran Newt Gingrich out of town – it actually put the far right on the defensive, and made the next speaker's job easier....He [Bohner] suspects this will make his successor's job easier as well."</p>
