Media Bias: Ted Cruz gets it


After a young staffer told Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz how “nice” a member of the media is, Cruz said he actually stopped the young man with a harsh reminder about the intentions of most reporters. “I actually stopped him and I said, ‘You know what? No, she’s not [nice]. She wants to destroy you. Nothing would make her happier than to take your life and filet you on the front pages. And don’t think for a minute that because she smiles and is friendly to you, that it’s anything else,’” Cruz said, sharing the story on The Glenn Beck Program. “Isn’t that pretty cynical?” Beck asked with a laugh. “I mean, I agree with you 100 percent, but it’s a little cynical!” Cruz responded that the mainstream media is full partisans who have “picked a team,” and “when the sheep are walking among coyotes, it pays to be cynical.” “You see Republicans when they’re interviewed by left-wing reporters, and they get afraid,” Cruz said. “They want them to like them. They are not going to like us! They hate us.” Cruz said he finds it amusing that, even though his father was imprisoned in Cuba for supporting Castro, sometimes the mainstream media tries to say other candidates are “more Hispanic” than he is, “because there’s nothing that makes you Hispanic like embracing the left-wing amnesty agenda.” “And look, that’s fine, the media is who they are,” Cruz concluded. “What we need to do when we deal with the media is speak the truth, but do it with a smile. Margaret Thatcher said, ‘First you win the argument, then you win the vote.’ The last several elections, we haven’t won the argument. We haven’t even made the argument.” Source:

  1. Why can’t we have somebody like Cruz as our nominee? He gets it. He’s not a moron. Why can’t we have a non-moron? I’m serious.

      I’m just hoping Cruz has a really good security team. If he becomes a serious threat, I wouldn’t put it past the Dems to put a hit out on him.

    The dems don’t need to worry.The GOP elites and their big money backers will never allow anyone to disrupt their profit machine.


  3. Intriguing comment (#100 on EMT) over at Ace this July 4th morn:

    “Ted Cruz says that he agreed with The Donald.

    “In the ultimate scenario I envision Trump enters the debates and raises viewer interest through the roof. A couple hundred million American people tune in for the spectacle.

    “Trump is good, makes a strong populist case. But Cruz is just as good and Trump realizes it and throws his support and wheelbarrows full of money behind Cruz, knowing what is good for America is good for Trump.

    “That’s my fantasy and I’m sticking to it.”

    Hm-mm .. stranger things have happened, I suppose. Interesting times …
