Cruz vs. Warren media treatment

Ann Althouse:
Big Media is hot to wreck Ted Cruz. Here's the NYT piece: "Texas Senator Goes on Attack and Raises Bipartisan Hackles." Oh? Bipartisan has hackles? Well, then I guess those bipartisan hackles are also raised by Elizabeth Warren. Here's HuffPo: "Elizabeth Warren's Aggressive Questioning Prompts Anger From Wall Street."

The NYT forefronts this quote from Barbara Boxer:

“It was really reminiscent of a different time and place, when you said, ‘I have here in my pocket a speech you made on such and such a date,’ and, of course, nothing was in the pocket,” she said, a reference to Senator Joseph R. McCarthy’s pursuit of Communists in the 1950s. “It was reminiscent of some bad times.”
Boxer didn't name names, but the NYT wants us to know that referred to Cruz, but why not Warren too? Because the NYT wouldn't have structured its rhetoric that way if it had known that a new Senator from the Democratic Party was going to go into attack dog mode the day they published the piece? 
... 
At least Cruz angered people by digging for the facts while Warren was engaged in a demagogic  attack on the victims of regulatory malpractice by Democrats and their allies.

Daniel Horowitz also comes to criticize the Cruz critiques.
...It is precisely this bipartisan collegial demeanor that has saddled us with incorrigible debt, distorted our free market economy, limited our liberties, attenuated our esteem throughout the world, and weakened our sovereignty.  If we ever hope to restore the strength and character of this Republic, we need to seek out more people like Ted Cruz – patriots who will not wait a single day to begin delivering on their campaign promises....
