Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on CBS Face the Nation on Sunday morning and was met with a barrage of questions from host Bob Schieffer about his involvement in the government shutdown. Apart from being the victim of Schieffer’s accusations that the Tea Party senator was to blame for the shutdown, it also appears that Mr. Cruz was the victim of editing by CBS.
Based on video from Senator Cruz’s YouTube page and what aired on today’s Face the Nation broadcast, the senator’s comments surrounding President Obama’s “abuse of power” were edited from the program. Instead what aired was a segment that ignored many of the senator’s complaints directed at President Obama.
CBS and the other liberal news networks have been doing this for years, today there is no (technical) reason for any conservative to say word one to anyone in the media without making and retaining a personal copy of the exchange.
With proper editing, they can turn your own words upside down. And that’s as clear as the bloody gash on the top of your head.
