Ted Cruz sat down with Howard Kurtz for an interview on Fox News slamming ‘partisan’ mainstream media.
HOWARD KURTZ: When you bash the media, and you have been treated unfairly at times portrayed as somebody who scares little children, but isn’t that in your interest to do that? Your base loves that. They don’t like the mainstream media.
TED CRUZ: There is a reason they don’t like the mainstream media because they are partisan liberal democrats.
KURTZ: Every single journalist?
CRUZ: Almost without exception.
KURTZ: Almost without exception?
CRUZ: Almost without exception they have a partisan agenda. And we understand – let’s take a substantive issue: police officers. If you have one police officer somewhere who does something he shouldn’t have, the press will breathlessly report on this terrible, horrible police officer and all the democratic politicians will jump in and demonize and vilify the cops. Let me ask you something? How come the press doesn’t tell stories of heroism? The great news is we don’t live anymore in a world of three networks that have a stranglehold on information. We have got the internet. We have got the Drudge Report. We have got talk radio. We have got social media. We’ve got the ability to go directly around, and directly to the people.
