CNN Says Cruz Lying To Voters Over Carson Caucus Controversy In Iowa During New Hampshire Debate

Trump, Right, With Ben Carson, left

CNN blasted Texas Sen. and GOP Presidential candidate Ted Cruz Saturday night after the network said Cruz continues to lie to voters about its reporting Monday in Iowa regarding Dr. Ben Carson.

According to Politico:

“CNN came out swinging against Ted Cruz Saturday night after the Texas senator once again tried to blame the network for his campaign’s use of its report to tell Ben Carson’s Iowa Caucus supporters that their candidate was dropping out of the race.

“What Senator Cruz said tonight in the debate is categorically false,” a network spokesperson said in a statement. “CNN never corrected its reporting because CNN never had anything to correct. The Cruz campaign’s actions the night of the Iowa caucuses had nothing to do with CNN’s reporting. The fact that Senator Cruz continues to knowingly mislead the voters about this is astonishing.”

Right as the Iowa caucus was beginning, CNN reported that Carson was not flying directly to New Hampshire and would instead fly to Florida for some days off and to get a fresh set of clothes.

Messages sent out to Cruz supporters at the caucuses made it seem as though Carson was suspending his campaign, and urged them to convince Carson supporters to jump to Cruz, who ended up winning the Caucus.”

  1. Nobody’s lying here. CNN put up a report that sort of sounded like Carson was suspending his campaign. Cruz staffers jumped on that and put it out without looking further. They should have looked further. Cruz has apologized to Carson. End of story. Carson’s performance in Iowa was right in line with what the polls had been saying, if anything slightly ahead of the average of those polls. This is a whole lot of furor over nothing.

    • what a crock of shit……….. SOUNDED LIKE ???? Are you three years old or just stupid ? Any fool could see it was done to get one of the idiots to bite and THEY FOUND THEIR GREEDY CHEATING VOTE STEALING IDIOT !!!! Don’t try telling us again about how smart Cruz is…….. because he looks pretty damn stupid right now.

  2. CRUZ SHOULD BE TAKEN OFF THE BALLOT, IF HE IS SO STUPID NOT TO CHECK OUT THE FACTS BEFORE HE MAKES A STATEMENT, THEN HE SURE IS NOT QUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT. A LIE IS A LIE, AND WHEN YOU SAY SOMETHING THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE THE FACTS.

    WHY DONALD TRUMP?

    MSNBC HATE HIM, DEMOCRATS HATE HIM, CNN HATE HIM, REPUBLICAN PARTY HATES HIM, FOX HATES HIM, KELLY HATES HIM, POLITICAL ESTABLISHMEN HATE HIM, AND THE NEWS MEDIA HATE HIM.

    HE MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT.

    WE DO NOT NEED 1ST YEAR POLITICIANS, OR GOVERNERS THAT HAVE SOLD OUT TO BIG MONEY PACS.

    1—HE DOES NOT NEED A JOB, 2—DOES NOT LIE TO YOU, 3—DOES NOT NEED BIG PAC MONEY, 4—DOES NOT NEED A BOOK DEAL, 5—IS TIRED OF SEEING OUR COUNTRY GOING DOWN THE TOLLET.

    A NEW BRAND OF POLITICS, THE TRUTH.

    TRUMP WANTS TO FIX THIS NATION. GET OUT AND WORK FOR HIM THEN VOTE FOR HIM.

    TRUMP IS THE ONLY ONE QUALIFIED TO RUN THE LARGEST BUSINESS ON EARTH, THE US GOVRNMENT, WE DO NOT NEED, FIRST YEAR SENATORS, MAYORS, OR GOVERNERS ALL OBLIGATED TO BIG MONEY PACS WITH NO BUSINESS EXPERIENCE, WE NEED DONALD TRUMP.

    • and you’re an idiot if you think the media hates Trump. THEY DON’T CONSTANTLY GIVE PRESS TO PEOPLE THEY HATE OR FEAR!!!!!! Ask Dr. Carson who the media hates and fears. THEY NEVER MENTION HIM AT ALL !!!!!! Lastly. TRUMP IS A DEMOCRAT MORON !!!!!! Do you read?????

      • Cruz didn’t make the statement. He was out at rallies both when CNN posted about Carson and when the Cruz campaign reacted to CNN’s post. If you don’t think that “not going to New Hampshire and South Carolina” and “going home to take a break from campaigning” most likely means “getting ready to withdraw from the race”, then you haven’t been around politics very long. I’m not a politician now–I got out of all of that a long time ago and now I concentrate on preaching and teaching God’s word and administering the Sacraments–but I was a political pro who was a regional coordinator for a couple of statewide candidates and a GOP city chairman and public official for years. I know what that language generally means. It means a candidate’s getting ready to get out. In fact, three candidates did get out right after those caucuses. Cruz and his campaign didn’t do anything outrageous; they did jump to conclusions when they should have checked. It was a mistake, and not even particularly glaring one, and, when you look at Carson’s poll numbers and his ultimate result in Iowa, it didn’t even have much effect, if any at all.

        As far as Trump, I’ll vote for him if he’s the nominee, but I hope he isn’t. Have you looked at the guy’s negatives? He’s the only Republican who draws the kind of negatives that Hillary draws.

        • You are a damn fool if you don’t think everything gets ok’d through the candidate!!!!!!!!!! Those tweets and emails were WELL COORDINATED. Are you one of those fools that also don’t believe Obama knew anything about Benghazi until a few days later ???? WTFU moron. We live in a instantaneous world !!!!!

          • do you eat with that mouth? And you’ve really had no contact with politics if you think the candidate always knows every detail of the campaign. As far as Obama and Benghazi? He knew that it was terrorists, not some protest, almost instantaneously. The very next day the president of Libya was saying on TV, “This was no protest; it was terrorists connected to Al-Qaida.” So, no, I’m not a fool who thinks Obama was in the dark on it. But in this case, there’s a campaign going on, Cruz is out there at a rally, the campaign manager sees something he thinks he can jump on, and he jumps on it–and makes a fool of himself and his candidate. I’ve been a candidate, and I’ve been a campaign manager. The candidate doesn’t run the campaign; the campaign manager does.

          • you’re a wannabe moron !!!!!!!!!

            I’ve done this, I’ve been that !!!!!!!!!

            POSER pulling for a Democrat sell out dressed up like a Republican.

            H1B
