Skip to comments.Ted Cruz: Breitbart.com Symbolizes 'Fantastic Democratization' of News
Posted on 03/04/2014 6:21:19 AM PST by SoConPubbie
Appearing on the inaugural edition of Breitbart News Saturday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125, Cruz said that "what Breitbart does is so important" because it helps conservatives bypass those in the legacy media who once were the sole gatekeepers. Cruz was speaking to Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon--who, along with a rotation of Breitbart News editors and contributors, will host the weekly show from 10 AM to 1 PM EST.
"If we were still in the world of 30 years ago when there were three networks that decided what the news was, then nothing you and I are talking about would have made it through the filter," Cruz said. "But there has been a fantastic democratization of the news where we can go directly to the people."
Cruz also praised "American citizens who are becoming their own journalists" and spreading the word to their friends and neighbors.
"That's how we turn this country around," Cruz said before noting that citizen journalists give him "hope and optimism" for America's future.
As Breitbart News reported, the late Andrew Breitbart and Cruz bonded well before Cruz became a household name. Bannon told Cruz that Breitbart respected his fearlessness and said he was one of the rising stars that he most admired and supported before his tragic passing. Bannon said that the late Breitbart hated Washington politicians, and he saw in Cruz a kindred spirit who was an anti-establishment figure who wanted to reform the country's institutions.

Ted Cruz Ping!
If you want on/off this ping list, please let me know.
Please beware, this is a high-volume ping list!
Breitbart.com is today’s samizdat.
Breitbart.com/SiriusXM doing the job LSM and GOPe won’t do.
God bless and keep Breitbart.com.
Breitbart is busy trashing Stockman....why?
Did anyone notice Breitbarts new writers from TX in their restructuring? One is a lib in Darby...believes IA’s should be allowed to remain and work. He made a name for himself uncovering the atrocities of human smuggling and the sex-slave trade. The other is Bob Price former member of US Border Watch who went the way of working for the paymasters of the huge construction outfits. Price also wrote amnesty pushing over at GOPVote. It seems Breitbart made some changes favorable to the cheap labor status quo...hmmm...then they level attacks at Stockman. OK I get it..he must be the candidate that threatens the status quo.
SoCon, thought I had asked once to be on list... but may be wrong... ;^)
(I was still trying to see who was who with all of the newcomers. I was right in my intuition to wait it out...
too many had positive ideas about pretty much all of the newcomers (who were ‘TEA Party’ back then... but I held back.. and it has paid off..
I think out of all of the selections we had back then, only 1 stands out holding his ground... that would be Cruz.)
Sorry for the oversight Bikkuri.
I’ve added you to the ping list.
No worries (think I picked that up from the NZlanders or Aussies in the last few years here :p) , like I said, I may have just forgotten.. we were all caught up ‘in the moment’ at the time :p
TY for adding ;^)
