Person of the Day: Dick “Hogwash” Cheney

DICK “Hogwash” CHENEY, who gave us a great week. In one interview he cried “Hogwash” when it was suggested that the GOP may feel now that his approach is too hardline. He attacked the interviewer for mentioning that Focus on the Family had objected to lesbian couples having children. “I think, quite frankly,” Cheney said, “you’re out of line with that question.” Then, of course, is Cheney’s role in the Scooter Libby trial, which is getting more interesting by the day. Although it has no bearing on the actual charges against Libby, his defense is pointing at Rove and Cheney anyway. And the fun doesn’t stop. Rove is called to testify this week! Stay tuned. (Thanks to Rob for this one.)

Impeachment, eh?


We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
