Editor suggests group Liz Cheney fronts is bogus


The editor of a prominent progressive magazine has suggested that Liz Cheney's political pressure group may be a bogus front that gives news networks an excuse to put the younger Cheney on TV.

The only reason that Liz Cheney makes it on the news talk show rounds is that "she's Dick Cheney's daughter," and her political pressure group is little more than an excuse "so that there is some putative reason, other than being Dick Cheney's daughter, to put her on the TV," Nation Washington editor Chris Hayes told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.

"There is no earthly reason that anyone should be listening to Liz Cheney on anything, other than the fact that she is the progeny of an alleged war criminal," Hayes told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Monday night.

Hayes said it's virtually impossible to track down what the younger Cheney's political pressure group, KeepAmericaSafe.com, has been doing and spending.

"I‘m trying to find on the Internet if there is any tabulation of actually how many points ... they‘ve purchased of advertising, because it‘s very unclear how much they‘ve actually spent and where. And that‘s incredibly hard to come by. I couldn‘t find it anywhere," Hayes said..........
