    I should attempt to make my comments pertinent so I don’t appear to be not applicable to the FOWC Fandango 🙂

      I’d say most of your comments are more irreverent than they are irrelevant. 😉

    I suppose they (faces put forth regularly on broadcast news [some with cable pairings] for appealing to the public about the status quo) could try arguing that reporting on Mike Lee is irrelevant to patting Chip Roy in the back for being less evil or for seeing his way through the fog, but…

    Will the media let Sen. Mike Lee go unquestioned?

    In the days leading up to Jan. 6, however, Roy recognized the dangers of this plot. “The president should call everyone off,” he texted Meadows on Dec. 31. “It’s the only path. If we substitute the will of states through electors with a vote by Congress every 4 years … we have destroyed the electoral college.”

    Lee, however, continued searching for some justification for Eastman’s approach. “I’ve been calling state legislators for hours today,” he told Meadows on Jan. 4. “We need something from state legislatures to make this legitimate and to have any hope of winning.” When no state legislature was forthcoming, and Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol, Lee did vote to certify the results.

    But since then, as Amanda Carpenter and others noted, Lee has downplayed his earlier efforts, telling CBS’s Robert Costa and The Post’s Bob Woodward that he only learned of Eastman’s idea on Jan. 2.

    So a Republican senator — a self-proclaimed “constitutional conservative,” no less — misled the country about his participation in a plot to overturn a presidential election. And yet not one of the five major Sunday talk shows mentioned one word about Lee. (CNN’s “State of the Union” had a good excuse: Almost its entire run-time was dedicated to an interview with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.) But the other four — “Meet the Press,” ABC’s “This Week,” CBS’s “Face the Nation” and “Fox News Sunday” — couldn’t find time for one question, let alone one segment, about Lee.

    It is not the media’s job to reflexively boost Republicans who stand up to Trump. Most of the current coverage that portrays Pence and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) as brave holdouts against the Trump mob frequently omits the many lows from the rest of their careers.
