Congresswoman Liz Cheney criticized Fox News in an appearance on the network on Thursday evening, saying that the right-wing cable news channel has a "particular obligation to make sure people know the election wasn't stolen." Cheney's remarks come after House Republicans voted to remove her from her leadership position on Wednesday.
"We all have an obligation, and I would say Fox News especially, especially Fox News, has a particular obligation to make sure people know the election wasn't stolen," Cheney said in an interview with Fox News anchor Bret Baier. Cheney's ouster was a result of her frequent criticism of former President Donald Trump, and her condemnation of his repeated false claims that the election was stolen. She has also urged Republicans not to downplay the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6 by a violent mob of Trump supporters. Cheney was one of just 10 House Republicans to vote to impeach Mr. Trump on a charge of incitement of insurrection in January, and survived a previous attempt to expel her from her post in February.
