“After a great deal of consideration and prayer, I have come to the conclusion that if I am nominated to be president of the United States that I will run on a ticket with my vice presidential nominee Carly Fiorina,” Cruz said during a rally in Indianapolis. CNN
Why are CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC broadcasting the long, illogical, and pastoral rhetoric of Senator Ted Cruz announcing Carly Fiorina as his Vice Presidential candidate? They’ve cutoff Senator Bernie Sanders (Kasich too) many times during his speeches. I understand it may be “Breaking News” for some, but it is uncontested with context.
The context I thought of while watching was the write-in candidate. All media focuses on both parties nominees achieving the required delegates. Journalism’s Code of Ethics suggests providing information relevant of topic; albeit, it is not a “must”directive, but a “should.”
For example, Chuck Todd, on September 18, 2013 during the Morning Joe show (MSNBC), stated this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opgYsJ1F3kE (I couldn’t embed the video, because the owner, TPMTV, made such decision, and seems to be the only one having the video online-thankfully).
It’s all for ratings. Mass Media needs to drop any inclination being a news source (journalism), and advertise themselves as heavily inconsistent reporting of facts and less informational for public necessity while implying partisan views.
Senator Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz kept on with his hate mongering, calling President Obama a narcissist before Mrs. Fiorna took the mic. Laughable, because he cannot get enough attention, complaining about everyone-pointing fingers to no end without reasonable . . . anything.
Divided, this country is becoming a nation discriminating Liberty rather than the Pursuit for which it was founded for.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
