It is unfortunate that the Ted Cruz campaign and Rep. Steve King sent out misleading and even erroneous information about Dr. Ben Carson's campaign plans, for which Cruz and King have apologized. But CNN is also to blame, and its self-righteous, overly indignant condemnation of the Cruz campaign exposes its own hypocrisy.
Bill O'Reilly blasted CNN's "breaking news" report, calling it "false" and "flat out untrue," also stating that the "news agency screwed up big time and apparently doesn't care ... ." (He also rebuked the Cruz campaign.)
While O'Reilly's criticism of CNN is clearly exaggerated, it is certainly deserved, as Mark Levin and others have pointed out.
To repeat: Jake Tapper, Dana Bash and Wolf Blitzer (or at the least their people) had access to the truth, yet they didn't feel the need to tell the whole world, "While we find this hiatus highly significant, we want to underscore that our man Chris Moody also reports that Dr. Carson is not suspending his campaign and that he plans to be in New Hampshire later this week."
Why, then, were the actions of the Cruz people so deplorable while CNN has no culpability at all?
