It’s instructive to see the MSM dishonestly describing Sen. Ted Cruz’s objections to Ann Telnaes’s denigrating cartoon as nothing more than him being angry that a cartoonist drew his daughters. No, MSM, it’s that they were depicted as tethered monkeys dancing to the tune of an organ grinder. Big difference.
Of course, as I said last night, it would be an Entirely Different Story if it were Sasha and Malia Obama being depicted in such a crude and vulgar manner. It would be beneficial for the media, and Telnaes, to be reminded that even the Obama girls participated in political campaign ads on behalf of their dad:
However, try as I might, I am unable to find any cartoon by Telnaes depicting Sasha and Malia as tethered animals as a result of this ad.
Again, try as I might, I could not find a cartoon by Telnaes depicting Clinton’s granddaughter as a tethered animal, either.
Anyway, we know how the game is played, and the usual suspects are more than willing to play the game with a standard manipulative deception:
File this under yet more proof that the MSM is not to be trusted, and is certainly not unbiased.
UPDATE: Cruz tweeted this response today:
