Spurned by major newspapers, Dem Congressman takes 'impeach Cheney' appeal to Web

As the House Judiciary Committee continues to refuse any action on proposals to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney, three of that panel's members tried to take their case to influential op-ed pages of the nation's largest newspapers.

They were turned down by every one -- including the New York Times, Washington Post and Miami Herald -- so now one of the lawmakers has taken his campaign to the Internet.

Rep. Robert Wexler (D-FL) on Friday launched a new Web site, WexlerWantsHearings.com to advance his call to impeach Cheney. The site hosts an op-ed article censored by the nation's major newspapers and outlines the case for impeaching Cheney.

"The truth is the mainstream media have no interest in this issue," Wexler said Friday.

2. The real problem with this remark is....
"The truth is the mainstream media have no interest in this issue,"

There is no MSM anymore and there hasn't been since Bush took office.

3. What we need is a new speaker of the house.

After that we can get down to business. The MSM isn't going to cover an impeachment that isn't ongoing. Unless the DEm's start one why should they?

4. joined and such
This is my first post in months, got tired of responding. I am so tired of hearing crap and no action taking place. If it is the case that they are trying yet noone in the msm is listening, that makes sense. This administration has broken our country and now it is our turn to break them. I feel like that should be a campaign slogan :). Might be a little harsh, but it is time to fight fire with fire, cliche as it may be.

7. You'd think the CM would jump on this but only when it involves sex or a Dem.
:patriot: Thank you, Rep. Wexler!!! :patriot:
