Twitchy reported earlier that Sen. Ted Cruz earned the first spontaneous standing ovation of the day at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa with his promise to “cut off every penny” of taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood. There have been many more ovations as the day has progressed, but one noted as particularly enthusiastic came as Gov. Bobby Jindal called out the mainstream media on its pro-liberal, pro-Obama bias.
Isn’t it risky to target the same media who will be responsible for covering his campaign? Yes and no, considering that the best take the Washington Post could come up with was to report that “There’s not much Indian left in Bobby Jindal.” At least that quote was real, if idiotic. The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates and CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill both anxiously retweeted a parody news site reporting that Jindal had for years been trying to “distance himself from his Indian roots.” Great research, guys.
Just for fun, what is today’s mainstream media take on President Obama, as news breaks that a fifth service member has died as the result of an apparent Islamic terrorist attack?
