Fox NewsA day after Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) was booted from Republican leadership for pushing back against the “Big Lie,” she appeared on Fox News and explicitly said the network had an “obligation” to tell its viewers that the “election wasn’t stolen.”Following months of Cheney’s criticism of former President Donald Trump’s repeated lies about the 2020 election, House Republicans voted on Wednesday to remove her as conference chair. The Wyoming congresswoman has remained defiant, however, driving home the message that the Republican Party needs to be “based on truth” and should pull itself away from the embrace of Trump, who will “drag us backward and make us complicit in his efforts to unravel our democracy.”During her Thursday evening appearance on Fox News’ Special Report, Cheney took the opportunity not only to question her party’s relationship with the truth but also to demand that Fox News do its part to clearly inform its viewers that Joe Biden is the legitimately elected president.Read more at The Daily Beast.
