Accuracy in Media

ABC News actually gave a fair summary; imagine that:

Rafael Cruz, Ted Cruz‘s father, called Donald Trump’s attempt to link him to John F. Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, “ludicrous.”

“It’s ludicrous, it’s ludicrous,” Cruz, 77, told ABC News today in an interview. “I was never in New Orleans at that time.”

On “Fox and Friends” Tuesday morning, Trump seized on an unsubstantiated National Enquirer story claiming the elder Cruz had ties to Oswald. The tabloid featured a photo of Oswald handing out pro-Fidel Castro pamphlets in New Orleans in 1963 alongside an unidentified man the Enquirer claimed was Rafael Cruz.
