Sen. Ted Cruz Intentionally Misrepresents CNN Reporter’s Observations From Kabul To Score Political Points

Filed under: General — Dana @ 11:25 am



[guest post by Dana]

CNN’s Clarissa Ward reported from the streets of Kabul yesterday. Despite the fact that the Taliban were nearby (and later approached Ward and told her to move aside because she was a woman), Ward, who wisely adapted her clothing in order to blend in, nonetheless gave us the opportunity to see what the city looked like as the Taliban moved into power. She considered the absolute surrealness of the situation, including Kabul falling to the Taliban, the lack of women on the streets, and the people’s fear of what was to come:

It’s obvious that any female news reporter in Kabul who is doing her job while in the midst of the Taliban is bravely determined to let the world see for itself what is happening. From her report in the video, Ward offered this observation of the Taliban:

“They were just chanting “Death to America,” but they seem friendly at the same time. It’s utterly bizarre.”

Now, Sen. Ted Cruz, who doesn’t lack for intelligence and clearly understood the fuller context of Ward’s obersvation, nonetheless chose to score cheap political points by insulting Ward’s (and our) intelligence by cherry picking this particular sound byte to present CNN and their reporter as un-American:

Unfortunately, other right-leaning sites chose to play Sen. Cruz’s game as well:

Cruz retweeted Benny Johnson, a right-wing activist, who shared abbreviated clips of Ward reporting from Kabul in an effort to paint her as praising the Taliban. The clip made the rounds online in right-wing circles on Monday. The Daily Wire, a right-wing outlet, and the Republicans’ House Judiciary Committee Twitter accounts also shared the clip. Other Republican lawmakers, including Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn and Georgia Rep. Jody Hice, also shared the clip criticizing CNN.

CNN wasn’t having any of it and pointed out the obvious:

“Rather than running off to Cancun in tough times, @clarissaward is risking her life to tell the world what’s happening. That’s called bravery. Instead of RTing a conspiracy theorist’s misleading soundbite, perhaps your time would be better spent helping Americans in harm’s way.”

What is absurd about Cruz and his fellow Republicans using out-of-context statements to reassure their constituents that CNN is still the enemy but Republicans are on it, is that one only has to watch the entirety of Ward’s report to know that they are intentionally misrepresenting her. And I suspect that these same politicians and pundits are likely watching CNN themselves just to see what is taking place in Kabul right now. Moreover, there is great irony here, as Erik Wemple points out:

And now for the irony: People like Cruz are wise to watch CNN’s well-funded, on-the-ground coverage of crises such as the one now unfolding in Kabul. It helps them sharpen their critiques of President Biden. They might consider how informed they would be if people like Ward weren’t risking their hides for the story. But they won’t.

So if I were playing Sen. Ted Cruz’s game, I’d ask him why he hates women so much.

  1. Kabul has fallen to the Taliban, and this is what Cruz chooses to make a stink about??

  3. As Dana alludes, Cruz is smarter than this. His major problem is that his party only values loyalty to their King, which he is not. He should really look at past Republicans who tried to ride this bull. You can trace the movement of positions the party has cast off over time in their rightward lurch by looking at once-popular pols now branded RINOs only a couple years after the ideology-front passed them by.

  12. Some of you may not remember, but then CNN’s Amanpour was clinging to a roof of a Russian hotel reporting live as the tanks rolled and guns fired during the Russian Revolution, too. Unlike the leg-lit-lip-glossed teleprompter readers in the NY studios of Fox News, these courageous women field reporters- like Ward- are actually real journalists and doing one helluva job at great personal risk.

    Exactly this, because of the absurdity.

    I took Cruz’s tweet as following the same absurdity. Now, should a sitting Senator being engaging in this sort of thing? No, it’s unbecoming.

  22. Furthermore, we seem to forget that the Taliban, as a whole, are a disgusting culture. Particularly the rapings, pedophiles and forced wedding aspect of that culture.

    It’s mindboggling that so many simply handwaves this.

    whembly (3bda0a)

  23. This is one heck of a spin on another “fiery, but mostly peaceful” propaganda piece by CNN.

    She was being a useful idiot while people were climbing onto moving airplanes and plummeting to their doom to avoid the Taliban.

  25. Ted Cruz’s career, to date, reminds me of a line from GWB’s acceptance speech in 2000. In speaking of Bill Clinton, Bush said something like: “All that talent — wasted.”

    Cruz is brilliant and has done much that I admire, but he has wasted all that talent after Trump became president. And this crack is just the latest example of that waste.

    Jim Miller (edcec1)

  26. Cruz is brilliant …

    All evidence to the contrary.

    With apologies to the great Tom Lehrer:

    ‘Gather round while I sing you of Canadian Cruz,
    A man whose allegiance is ruled by expedience;
    Call him unprincipled for changing his views,
    “Principles, schminzables” coos Canadian Cruz.

    Don’t say that he’s hypocritical,
    Say rather that he’s quite political;
    “So I chastised Miss Ward, by next week it’s old news!
    Memories are short,” coos Canadian Cruz.

    Some have harsh words for his bait-and-switch ruse,
    But some say their attitude should be one of gratitude;
    Like the wife and the father; their honor abused,
    So easily betrayed by Canadian Cruz.

    You become a conservative hero,
    Fleeing Texas when the temperature’s at zero;
    “In Calgary ‘oder’ Cancun, I keep changing my views,
    And I’ll change ’em again,” coos Canadian Cruz.

    Sorry, but Ward sounded foolish saying the Taliban “seemed friendly.”

    Absolutely correct, and she called it bizarre.

    We should try to understand what this means. They are the front line. They’ve been told not to aggravate anyone unnecessarily. They will not do anything that they have not been given orders to do.

    The thing to do is to keep the top Taliban leaders bottled up in Doha as long as possible, so they cannot issue any secret orders.

    Sammy Finkelman (51cd0c)

  28. 22. whembly (3bda0a) — 8/17/2021 @ 12:59 pm

    . Particularly the rapings, pedophiles and forced wedding aspect of that culture.

    No, no, The pedophiles were in the opposition and they stayed that way because they knew they could never be accepted by the Taliban. The homosexual ones anyway. As for rapes, the Taliban believe in marriage. So it’s forced marriages. And checking to see that men and women who are together are married.
    .

    Sammy Finkelman (51cd0c)

  29. Whembly and BuDuh – That odd combination of “Death to America!” and friendliness has happened before, perhaps often before. For example, years ago a journalist described watching one of those “Death to America” marches in Tehran, when one of the marchers stopped to talk to him. The marcher told him that he was glad to meet the journalist, and would like to visit Disneyland some time — and then picked up his sign, rejoined the crowd, and began chanting “Death to America!” again.

    Similar happenings were described over at Political Betting, when the subject came up there.

    I’ll leave it to the experts to try to explain that combination — but it does happen.

    (Sorry, I can’t remember the name of the journalist.)

    Jim Miller (edcec1)

  30. @28 Sammy… there are oodles of stories of forced child marriages for their fighters. How could you handwave that away is something other than a Taliban sanctioned rape.

    Not to mention a culture that allows men to rape young boys…

    whembly (0ae2ca)

  31. @29 Jim, it’s absurd. Sometimes absurdity need to be responded with sarcastic absurdity (ie, mostly peaceful protest in front of a burning building). It’s simply beneath Cruz’s stature to engage in this muck.

    whembly (0ae2ca)

  32. #26 “All evidence to the contrary.” All?

    Cruz attended two private high schools: Faith West Academy, near Katy, Texas;[27] and Second Baptist High School in Houston, from which he graduated as valedictorian in 1988, . . .

    Cruz graduated cum laude from Princeton University in 1992 with a Bachelor of Arts in public policy[31] from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. . . .

    After graduating from Princeton, Cruz attended Harvard Law School, graduating magna cum laude in 1995 with a Juris Doctor degree.[2][39] While at Harvard Law, he was a primary editor of the Harvard Law Review, an executive editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, and a founding editor of the Harvard Latino Law Review.[32] Referring to Cruz’s time as a student at Harvard Law, Professor Alan Dershowitz said: “Cruz was off-the-charts brilliant.

    Well, maybe not quite all.

    @28 Sammy… there are oodles of stories of forced child marriages for their fighters. How could you handwave that away is something other than a Taliban sanctioned rape.

    That’s what it amounts to, probably even in Islam. But it’s not open rape. It’s, as you said, “sanctioned.” Now they want to force families to agree to make girls available.

    The Taliban do not even like prostitution or drinking alcohol. That kept some independent Afghan warlords from defecting to the Taliban.

    Not to mention a culture that allows men to rape young boys…

    Strictly forbidden by the Taliban. It was some people who were on our side who were doing that. Of course the military was in as much denial as possible about that.

    Sammy Finkelman (51cd0c)

  34. #31 Whembly – Absolutely. (And I don’t think this kind of behavior helps him, politically, in the long run.)

  36. Here’s a journalist describing dissidents in Iran, and another example of that odd combination I mentioned in #29.

    Jim Miller (edcec1)

  37. She wasn’t cheer-leading or making excuses. Claims by lairs to the contrary she was pointing out that their behavior was bizarre and weird. Which makes sense. The Taliban is comprised of terrible people whose actions can barely be described as ‘sane’. Showing what’s happening on the street is what street reporters do. Misrepresenting that because your base hates the press and it’s a way to score cheap points is what liars like Cruz do.

    But the Taliban taking over Afghanistan is exactly what Trump, Biden, and their supporters were totally okay with. Not saying. They wanted it, but they didn’t care if it happened.

    We held the Taliban at bay for 20 years with an increasingly small force. The previous administration tried to pull out in Dec of last year, and then pushed it out to May of this year. The current administration delayed until now to put together a plan that appears to have failed completely.

  47. I watched Mitch McConnell’s statement last night, along with the short Q&A that followed and could not help but think “We would be so much better off with this man as president.” And that would be true at any time since about 2004.

    But Cruz has taken the Trump Lesson to heart: The average IQ of American voters is 100, which means a lot of them are open to transparently stupid arguments. It’s probably a corollary to Menkin’s Law.

    Kevin M (ab1c11)

  48. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who has sought to ban mask mandates in schools, tests positive for the coronavirus

    People who are around a lot of people a lot of the time will tend to get exposed. Especially if the people they are around are anti-vaxx idiots. Vaccines are not perfect. He is asymptomatic, which is a benefit of being vaccinated. I suspect that he gets tested fairly frequently, as per policy in his office.

    Again, new rule: No vaccine, no ICU.

    Kevin M (ab1c11)

  49. #44 Time123 – I agree, but it is also true that Cruz has to win general elections — and he had a close call in 2018, winning by just a little over 2.5 percentage points (50.89-48.33 percent).

    (Governor Greg Abbot was winning that year by more than 13 points, against, granted, a weaker opponent.)

    Jim Miller (edcec1)

  50. I think the strong focus on people getting covid after opposing mitigation methods is ghoulish. When the people took silly risks themselves it may be Karma.

    I simply cannot relate to this comment in any way. Her costume was worn to blend in and not draw attention to herself given the surrounding company. Should she have gone with her head uncovered and in Western garb instead?

    Why would you assume this was an “agenda driven” report? Nobody knew ahead of time what would happen during her report, nor did they know what the Taliban would say or do. Not even CNN. Further, misrepresenting Ward’s observation that the Taliban seemed friendly while chanting death to America as “cheerleading” is preposterous. She is clearly relaying to viewers the bizarreness of the situation: Two diametrically opposed behaviors on display by the Taliban.

    It’s like looking for a boogeyman under ever rock.

    mg (8cbc69)

  57. @55. She’s damn good at her job– which is more than can be said for Ted Cruz:

    ‘On 21 September 2015, CNN announced that Ward was joining the network and reporting for all of CNN’s platforms. She will remain based in London. On August 8, 2016, she spoke at a United Nations Security Council meeting on the situation in the civil war-torn Aleppo, based on her 10+ years’ experience of being a war correspondent.

    ‘In July 2018, CNN named Ward its chief international correspondent, succeeding Christiane Amanpour in the role. In 2019, she became one of the first Western reporters to report on the life in the Taliban controlled areas of Afghanistan. In August 2020, reports emerged that Ward and her team were under surveillance while in the Central African Republic in May 2019. In December 2020, in a joint investigation by The Insider and Bellingcat in co-operation with CNN and Der Spiegel, she reported how Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) members stalked Alexei Navalny for years, including just before his poisoning in August 2020. The investigation detailed a special unit of the FSB specializing in chemical substances and investigators tracked members of the unit using telecom and travel data.

    In 2021, Ward’s reporting in Myanmar was criticized by local journalists for “parachute journalism that serves no purpose other than chasing higher ratings” and for endangering the lives and families of 11 of her interview subjects. In August, 2021, Ward reported on the Taliban surge in Afghanistan, including interviews with Taliban leaders and people behind the battle lines.’- source, wikiclassact.newsgal

    She’s knows how to do her job w/o cracks from Cruz. How such a big, bearded, lard-azzed, cowardly Cuban-by-way-Canada keeps projecting the persona of such an intellectually challenged pork chop is mindboggling. Oh. Right. Texas.

    DCSCA (f4c5e5)

    He craves his name in the press cycle every 10 days; ‘any press is good publicity’… just like former president you-know-who.

Helluva win for them– something the Confederate Army could envy.

  73. So if I were playing Sen. Ted Cruz’s game, I’d ask him why he hates women so much.

    We all suffer under their constant nagging, constant putting themselves in harm’s way for personal attention, and constant deference to dubious medical, state, and religious ‘authorities’, this question is not only lazy but probably approaching counterproductive at this point. It’s well known that women seek not ‘happiness’ as such but mainly to fit in with society, and will choose shared misery as much or more readily as they’ll choose a situation that’s actually conducive to happy, peaceful and harmonious living.

    They had a good run, but it’s time to pull the plug. Banish them to the Peloton mines till they learn to be civilized again.
