The Media Research Center’s Matthew Balan reports, “NBCNews.com followed the lead of Politico on Wednesday in hyping left-leaning attacks of Senator Ted Cruz for reading Dr. Seuss’ ‘Green Eggs and Ham.’ … The two writers also turned to Kansas State University’s Phil Nel, whom they identified as a ‘Seuss biographer.’ However, they omitted that Nel donated thousands of dollars to Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns, as well as to pro-abortion group Emily’s List and to MoveOn.org.”
Washington Post mocker-in-chief Dana Milbank quoted no facts about Obamacare that Mr. Cruz shared and related only personal stories Mr. Cruz told about his life and family. The message: Mr. Cruz is an egomaniac, nothing more.
In July 1987, Oliver North made fools of liberal lawmakers who tried to crucify him in the Iran-Contra hearings. If you had not been watching on C-SPAN, and relied only on media reports, you would have thought that Col. North had been shamed and bested.
Those who haven’t seen portions of Mr. Cruz’s speech and have heard only the establishment GOP, Democrats and their hambone media allies have no clue about what really happened last week.
