Ames, Iowa — Ted Cruz declined to take a position on whether the Republican National Committe is right to boycott NBC and CNN for primary debates if the networks go ahead with their plans to air movies on Hillary Clinton, but made it clear he anticipated such movies would be biased.
“I don’t think anybody is surprsised to discover that the mainstream media are in love with Hillary Clinton,” Cruz told reporters after delivering a speech at the Family Leader Summit. “I would expect both of those movies to be released on Valentine’s Day. That is her base.”
But ultimately, he concluded, the decision on whether to boycott or not should be left up to RNC chairman Reince Priebus.
“At the end of the day, if Hillary Clinton chooses to run for president, she is going to find hosannas from the mainstream media,” Cruz said.
