Sen. Ted Cruz told Texas-based radio host Michael Berry that there were more than a few players at Fox News with a disproportionate role in the rise of Donald Trump.
Berry asked Cruz, “You took to task several folks on Fox News and I think you were right to do so. You’ve never been one to whine throughout the course of the campaign, but do you think you were treated fairly and particularly by Fox News?
Well, listen, you know there’s time for recriminations and you know, everyone who was responsible for the rise of Donald Trump, they will bear that responsibility going forward. But there were more than a few players who played a disproportionate role in that rise and you know I’m gonna focus, instead of looking backwards, I’m gonna focus on looking forwards. And looking forward, you know a lot of folks in the media are trying to write the story of the death of the conservative movement. And quite frankly that’s a story they’ve always wanted to write. And I think the story is utter nonsense. I think the conservative movement is strong and thriving, and I believe, you know, the great thing about eternal principles, they’re always true. The free market principles, the constitutional liberties that built America, they work, they are commonsense conservative principles, and I believe America still hungers for us to get back to them.
There is little doubt that Cruz was referring to Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly. Cruz has gone head to head with both hosts because they held Cruz accountable for not answering questions posed to him — something Cruz loves to do.
