CBS edits Ted Cruz interview to remove his comments on Dinesh D’Souza’s indictment and Barack Obama’s abuse of power
I have written several times in the past about the Republicans’ ineptitude when it comes to getting their message out but the role the mainstream media plays in this should not be overlooked. Even when they try to get the word out there they are facing an uphill battle.
For instance, take the interview Ted Cruz recently did with CBS’s program ‘Face the Nation’ as a case in point. When Ted Cruz was on the show all that Bob Schieffer seemed interested in talking about was Ted Cruz’s role in the government shutdown, while Ted Cruz wanted to talk about Barack Obama’s abuse of power.
Here is part of what Ted Cruz had to say during that interview:
Let me tell you something that is deeply concerning—the abuse of power from this Administration. We’ve seen multiple filmmakers prosecuted and the government’s gone after them. Whether it’s the poor fellow that did the film that the President blamed Benghazi and the terrorist attacks on, turns out that wasn’t the reason for the attack but the Administration went and put that poor fellow in jail on unrelated charges. Just this week it was broken that Dinesh D’Souza, who did a very big movie criticizing the president, is now being prosecuted by this Administration.”
Can you image the reaction if the Bush Administration had went, gone and prosecuted Michael Moore and Alec Baldwin and Sean Penn?”
It should trouble everyone the government uses government power and the IRS in particular to target their enemies and you are talking a new minutes to Chuck Schumer
At this point Ted Cruz was cut off by Bob Schieffer who said, “we are going to leave this for another day, Senator. Thank you for joining us and we’ll talk to you again.”
At this point the interview was over, but the American people never saw any of this because CBS left this whole portion of the interview on the cutting room floor and we all know why, it didn’t fit the agenda the mainstream media is pushing. They are going to leave that subject for another day? I guess that will be the same day that hell freezes over, unless of course global warming stops that from happening.
