‘Face the Nation’ Edits Out Senator Cruz Condemning Obama’s ‘Abuse of Power'

‘Face the Nation’ Edits Out Senator Cruz Condemning Obama’s ‘Abuse of Power'

By Jeffrey Meyer | January 26, 2014

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on CBS Face the Nation on Sunday morning and was met with a barrage of questions from host Bob Schieffer about his involvement in the government shutdown. Apart from being the victim of Schieffer’s accusations that the Tea Party senator was to blame for the shutdown, it also appears that Mr. Cruz was the victim of editing by CBS.

Based on video from Senator Cruz’s YouTube page and what aired on today’s Face the Nation broadcast, the senator’s comments surrounding President Obama’s “abuse of power” were edited from the program. Instead what aired was a segment that ignored many of the senator’s complaints directed at President Obama. [See the aired and unaired videos below.]

Bob Schieffer is a huge enemy of liberty and the truth.

Not surprising that they cut out the part of Cruz's interview that had substance.

Freedom of speech?? Shit. Why would anyone even go on that show? The media in this country is a fucking joke.

The Ministry of Truth stepped-in and redacted history.

With Obama giving the SOTU speech tomorrow, the Ministry of Truth had to do something, so they did. They stepped-in and redacted history.

How many times has Ron Paul been cut-off by these low-lifes?

Why?

Why would they edit this out?

I think your downvotes are

because people can't see you intended sarcasm. Am I right or am I missing something?

Apparently...

I forgot to use the sarcasm font
