Just Another Week for Senator Ted Cruz in the Media

The Democrat party and it's ally the mainstream media have long smeared and attacked Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. Any mention of Tea Party support by a conservative candidate will get them on the leftist and BIG government supporter's target list. This last week was no exception.  The AP misquotes Senator Cruz and the Pavlovian response from the left was predictable.

Ted Cruz quotes ‘pro-choice’ jerks accurately, is falsely accused of calling them Satan worshippers

The Associated Press caught a lot of grief for their bias and ran a mostly unnoticed correction.

Correction: Republicans-Abortion story

WASHINGTON (AP) — In some versions of a story March 12 about possible Republican presidential contenders talking about abortion, The Associated Press reported erroneously that they called abortion rights activists Satan worshippers. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said abortion rights activists had chanted "Hail, Satan," referencing a rally last year in Austin, Texas.

Activists look for candidate who is as anti-abortion as they are, hear from Cruz, Huckabee

Like many abortion opponents, the Susan B. Anthony List is in search of a White House contender who won't shy from social issues after back-to-back presidential nominees in 2008 and 2012 who focused their campaigns on the economy and came up short. Several potential 2016 candidates were making their pitches in blunt terms, urging the group members to stick to their principles and fight those who would stand in their way.
Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said those who support abortion rights favor a "culture of death" and engage in "savagery."
Sen. Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican who is a favorite of the tea party, reminded the crowd of activists that supporters of abortion rights chanted "Hail, Satan" to silence their enemies during a heated protest at the Texas Capitol

The week ends for Senator Ted Cruz with a puzzling media campaign in Hollywood.

The Senator tweets this classic response:
