The Press’s Phony Evenhandedness About Trump and Cruz

Ron Fournier of National Journal says that the GOP’s “top two presidential candidates are abusing each other’s wives.” Mollie Hemingway comments: “This is simply not true. Trump has abused Cruz’s wife. But Cruz has praised Trump’s wife. There is not any reason to believe that Cruz has done anything that Fournier accuses him of. I asked Fournier for evidence of his incendiary claim. He didn’t provide any.” And as Hemingway points out, Fournier isn’t the only one who is pretending that Cruz has gotten into the gutter with Trump.
