Senator Ted Cruz strikes again this time destroying former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau. Cruz was posting on Twitter about how wrong it is that the New York Times plans to call Trump a racist for the next 18 months since the Russian collusion angle failed. He called them out for not reporting the news. But apparently this upset the Liberal Favreau, so he thought he should bash Cruz. But he was not prepared for what followed.
“There was a time when journalists covered “news.” The NYT has given up on even pretending anymore. Today, they are Pravda, a propaganda outlet by liberals, for liberals. These remarks at their “town hall” are a scandal & would be a firing offense at any real journalistic outlet.”
“If you cared about journalism, or the First Amendt, READ the transcript. The Editor says (in effect) “for 2 yrs, we covered ‘Russia, Russia, Russia,’ facts be damned; now we’ll scream ‘racism, racism, racism’ for 18 mos, and the rest of the media follow us.” That’s not journalism.”
Obama’s former speechwriter Jon Favreau took offense to Cruz for pointing out the truth and tweeted about how he felt it was wrong.
“Ted Cruz picking a bad faith media bias fight with the New York Times and then retweeting all of the glowing coverage from right-wing propaganda sites is literally everything you need to know about @tedcruz.”
“Obama’s speechwriter demonstrates the problem. (1) He attacks, impugning motives, and ignores the substance. (2) With Dems (esp Obama), the media adoringly amplifies every word they say. (3) They refuse to cover any facts that conflict with their chosen Left-wing narrative. 1/x https://twitter.com/jonfavs/status/1163675822730797056 …”
“So of course I retweet stories about the NYT scandal (from Fox, Wash Times, Daily Wire, etc.) BECAUSE THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA REFUSES TO COVER IT. As best I can tell, ZERO stories in NYT, WaPo, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN. Like you, they ignore the actual transcript of the NYT town hall. 2/x”
Favreau should have known better than to mess with Senator Cruz. He clearly didn’t read the article and thought he was being clever. He didn’t stand a chance.
