Glenn Beck recently floated the theory that the mainstream media had deliberately chosen NOT to cover Ted Cruz’s recent decision to work with the mercy mission of Mercury One to the thousands of illegal immigrants living along our southern border. The reason the media has chosen to not cover Senator Cruz’s work? They had already chosen sides in the 2016 Presidential competition, and Senator Cruz is not a candidate that the media thinks is “acceptable.”
Mercury One, the charity Glenn Beck founded, will be in McAllen, Texas, on Saturday, passing out roughly $2 million in food, water, clothing and toys to illegal immigrant children. Beck and a number of volunteers will be there to help.
But as Beck said, while many news outlets, including MSNBC, have reported on the relief effort, few have said anything about Cruz’s involvement.
“Why is nobody covering this? This came out yesterday. This is a big deal. Why is no one covering that Ted Cruz is going down to the border for a relief program?
They cannot cover Ted Cruz going down to the border. This gives Ted Cruz the ammo to be tough on immigration, to be tough on justice. Once you have mercy established, you have credibility to talk about justice. If [former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush] were going down, I guarantee you Fox News would be covering it. NBC would have cameras there. It’s amazing. And the lack of coverage should tell you everything you need to know: We are already playing presidential games. We’re already playing presidential games. Can’t we not play games?”
I don’t know if Beck is right about the media ignoring Cruz’s trip to the border. But I think he is 100% accurate when he says that the media is terrified of a Cruz Presidency and will do anything they can to stop it.
