9/26/13 - In the wake of Ted Cruz's epic 21-hour-long filibuster on Obamacare, many conservatives called out the media bias inherent in the coverage, especially when compared to the way the media fawned over Wendy Davis. But what really made the media coverage so openly negative towards Cruz, in Glenn Beck's estimation, was the "blindfolded fear" they have for Cruz and the power of what he's saying.
he had no problem with people praising Davis for her filibuster, but now
that conservatives have someone to cheer on, liberals are trying to
distort what Cruz said by making him "look foolish and dangerous," then
going on to "destroy" him. Most people who watched bits and pieces of
Cruz's filibuster in the liberal media, Beck believed, wouldn't know
much else besides the Green Eggs and Ham reading, because the media is
trying to dampen the effectiveness of Cruz's message.
continues to do what the press does best: smear, distort, and lie. They
are terrified about Ted Cruz. Terrified. You don't spend this much time
tearing somebody down. You ignore them. They are terrified, because they
saw, as anybody who actually watched it, anybody who actually listened
to him, they saw exactly how smart he is, how stable he is, how cogent
he is, how together he is, even after 20 hours."
Beck also called out
Cruz's fellow Republicans for thinking they can distance themselves as
much as possible from Cruz and not get hit in the crossfire, but they're
mistaken because, as Beck warned, once they're done taking down Cruz,
"they will come for you."
