Is the Media Circus Distracting From the Real Issues?
On the brink of a government shutdown, the media’s attention is on the Washington circus and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). Last week, Sen. Cruz spoke for more than 21 hours in protest of ObamaCare. Today on Media Buzz, Howard Kurtz and his panel discussed the coverage.
Kurtz ran into Sen. Cruz prior to the show. The Republican senator said he welcomed media critics, like Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, because they bring attention to his cause.
But is the mainstream media making Cruz the issue, instead of the health care law and the government shutdown? Fox News contributor Lauren Ashburn said Cruz likely welcomes the attention because he may run for president in 2016.
