NY Times pushes Liz Cheney ‘crossover appeal’ with Dems, Twitter says that’s just ‘not a thing’

Regardless of all the numbers that clearly illustrate how nationally disliked Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) is, The New York Times is dedicated to waving its political pom-poms for the RINO with, the paper insists, Democratic “crossover” appeal.

As BizPac Review reported on Friday, Liz Cheney is not a popular woman.

Her time spent trashing Trump as a handpicked member of the House Jan. 6 Committee has made her persona non grata among Wyoming’s largely Republican voters.

Even CNN’s senior data reporter, Harry Enten, warned after looking at the latest polling data that “we shouldn’t mistake adoring press coverage and bipartisan bona fides for popularity in the place where popularity matters most for Cheney: Wyoming.”

In fact, Enten says, in 2021, “Cheney was the least popular member of Congress.”

And the Dem-darling’s prospects haven’t improved in 2022.

In her home state, Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman is beating Ms. Cheney “by a significant margin.”

But when it comes to “adoring press coverage and bipartisan bona fides,” Liz Cheney says “pretty please” and The New York Times says “hold my beer.”

The Times reported in late June, “In the last week, Wyoming Democrats have received mail from Ms. Cheney’s campaign with specific instructions on how to change their party affiliation to vote for her. Ms. Cheney’s campaign website now has a link to form for changing parties.”

This, despite the fact that Cheney assured the paper in February that she wouldn’t be doing exactly that.

“That is not something that I have contemplated, that I have organized or that I will organize,” she said.

Now The Times, via reporters Kate Kelly and Maggie Habermann, is touting Cheney’s “Latest Fans: Democratic Donors,” including “one of the nation’s biggest Democratic donors, the film producer Jeffrey Katzenberg.”

According to The Times, “the Democrats supporting her say they have been impressed by her courage in opposing the former president — whom she voted to impeach after the Jan. 6 attack — and standing up for the peaceful transfer of power.”

Said political strategist Dmitri Mehlhorn, “Cheney is the most important politician in America right now.”

Over on Twitter, users would beg to differ.

“Dear @maggieNYT,” replied one user, “NO, this is not a thing. Sincerely, The American People.”

“It’s all a grift,” stated another. “She’s milking out the money she can before she loses by 50 and becomes the token conservative on a morning talk show.”

“I think it does say something about the current political climate,” said a third, “but whatever that is will not matter much beyond January 2023, which is the last time she will hold any elected office of note.”

Liberals aren’t buying it either, as evidenced by one user, who displays “she/her” pronouns in her bio.

“I suppose if you support overturning Roe and voter suppression laws, Liz is your girl,” she wrote. “But don’t call them Democrat donors, their just rich White guys who don’t give a crap about women’s rights.”

So, Katzenberg, who The Times said “helped make Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton into Hollywood darlings,” is a DINO?

According to one user, the whole “Liz Cheney” subject is much ado about nothing.

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend — temporarily,” an account that goes by “Conservative Law” tweeted. “Her newly discovered ‘friends’ though her father was Darth Vader and didn’t think much more of her pre-Trump. This too shall pass.”
