Cruz is well embedded in journalism - even Breitbart fell victim:

Breitbart's former editor Ben Shapiro killed the story. He was later asked for his resignation after fellow Cruz activist Michelle Fields perpetrated the hoax of claiming to have been pushed down by Trump's campaign manager [and the video surfaced, debunking her]. Both she and Shapiro were asked for their resignations after that. Shapiro then went to work for an online magazine owned by a Cruz backer [who donated something like $600,000 to his campaign].

So it's significant that the man spiking the Cruz story [Shapiro] had extensive ties to Cruz and his financial backers. He was clearly protecting the man.

Footnote: It's telling that all these people busted for dishonesty [Ben Shapiro, Michelle Fields, her boyfriend, Cruz fundraiser Jamie Weinstein] are all tied to a man known affectionately as "Lyin' Ted," and all busted for . . . well . . . lyin'. Guess the fruit doesn't fall too far from the tree.

The Fields story is still disputed. The video show Lewandowski and the secret service may have both made contact with Fields. Yet, Lewandowski denies anything and the Trump campaign attacks Fields.

Calling this a hoax is disingenuous.

How did Cruz get all these talk hosts? Are the Limbaugh boys still doubling down on him? Levin going to admit he was scammed? Is he going to scream at his fiancee?
