New Ad From Liz Cheney’s Group Bashes Olbermann, Matthews As “Afraid” To Debate Her

New Ad From Liz Cheney’s Group Bashes Olbermann, Matthews As “Afraid” To Debate Her
(Ad at link)

Liz Cheney’s new group designed to critique Obama’s national security policies, Keep America Safe, is putting the media on notice: It’s going to play rough. And weak-kneed liberal media whimps should be very, very afraid.

A source sends over a new Web ad just produced by Ms. Cheney’s group, which is devoted to making the case that Obama’s reversal of Bush policies is radical and dangerous. The ad bashes Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews as “afraid” to debate her on the “substance” of national security policy:

The ad airs footage of Olbermann, Matthews, and Ed Schultz mocking the recent announcement of her group, and concludes:

“Why don’t they want to talk substance? Why are they panicked? Why don’t they want to debate the issues?”


The implication being, of course, that the MSNBC gang is running scared from Ms. Cheney. If memory serves, though, Ms. Cheney has repeatedly been granted a platform on … MSNBC, again and again and again, to defend her pop’s legacy and champion policies that don’t even exist anymore.

Looking forward to the lily-livered liberal network crew’s response to this one. Maybe they’ll invite her on again a bunch more times to discuss her contempt for them.

Separately, we were hoping you could help us write a profile of Ms. Cheney over at the moderated wiki in the WhoRunsGov mothership. You can get instructions on how to do that right here. We assume you have lots to say about her.

18. She wouldn't shut up long enough for that to happen.
Unless KO cut her mike. She's like the Energizer Bunny -- she keeps going and going and going.

5. I'd like to see her debate with Rachel! You know, woman to woman.
That way she can;t claim gender bias an all. Chris or Keith afraid to debate her is just silly BS.

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

16. Well, isn't she the little
fucking innovator?

Or has this been done before..big rwanker donors funding a motormouth who has not one fact at her disposal but will take on a non facist pundit if they'd only let her.

Wonder if this will warrant a dismissal from KO and/or Tweety?

Just wondering.

Being a hypocrite and a coward runs in the Cheney family.
