Liberal media hacks falsely claim Ted Cruz called U.S. soldiers ‘psychopaths’

Ted_Cruz_by_Gage_Skidmore_5It’s pretty much a given these days that much of what gets reported by what I now call “operatives” of the “Democrat-media complex” (previously known as “reporters”) simply can’t be trusted anymore.

Case in point:

Earlier Sunday, CNBC’s John Harwood and CNN’s Teddy Schleifer “quoted” Ted Cruz on the subject of women being drafted.

And by “quoted,” I mean, “wildly taken out of context.”

Harwood posted the same message, but had the good sense to delete it.

Naturally, many took the tweets and began spreading lies:

But, T. Becket Adams noted the whole thing was taken out of context:

Yes, it does.  But this has basically become SOP when covering Republicans.

Do you see what the Democrat-media complex operatives did here?  They failed to provide the whole quote.  If they had, the reaction would’ve been much different, and I suspect they probably knew it at the time.

After all, it’s in plain English, and it isn’t even that difficult to read or comprehend.

This, at least to me, is a clear-cut case of liberal media bias with the intended goal of hurting Ted Cruz.  And we can expect to see much more of this crap between now and the election.

No wonder Pat Caddell said the media is America’s greatest enemy.

Exit question: Do media operatives even CARE about getting anything right?  Or are they just paid propagandists?
