9. They just don't want to waste the precious time they have
to give her yet another platform to spew nonsense.

Cheney & her pals NEED free airtime, and the way they get it is to say weird & wacky stuff, and then get asked to defend it on-air..

If the media would ignore them, the way liberals were ignored for decades, they too would become irrelevant.

How many times during the past decades have we seen Chomsky invited on the mainstream media for his comments? or Phil Donahue? or Glenn Greenwald?

Media's go-to people have usually been right wing. Pat Buchanan has been an on-air personality for 30 years or more, and in the for 10 minutes all those years ago, he said all he "knew"....and yet we have been hearing from him ever since

Liz knows that her income depends on her being on tv
