Weekend Thread: Dems gets silenced on the Liz Cheney story

It’s arguably the biggest political story of the week — the GOP steps up its efforts to drive Trump non-believers from the party, and prepares to strip Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) of her leadership title. All because she won’t endorse the Big Lie about how the 2020 election was “stolen.” It’s part of a larger push to disregard election results.

But have you noticed in the coverage how infrequently Democrats are quoted and given a chance to articulate how radical and dangerous the Republican Party has become? The Cheney controversy revolves around President Joe Biden’s victory, but Democrats aren’t allowed to comment? It’s another disturbing example of how the Beltway press views the news through the prism of the GOP.

Question for PRESS RUN readers: Do you think Cheney will still be serving in Congress after the 2022 elections?
