Media mishandled Trump's attack on Heidi Cruz

Mollie Hemingway:
3 Problems With Media Coverage Of Attacks On Heidi Cruz

Media's responses to Donald Trump's threats to and disparagement of Heidi Cruz are deeply flawed.
It is worth reading the whole thing, but their biggest mistake was misidentifying the source of the ad that set Trump off, claiming it came from a Cruz Super PAC.  It did not, but they compounded that error by claiming that  that "both sides" were wrong.  But since neither Cuz or his PAC's had anything to do with the original ad, the both sides argument failed and it ignored the fact that Cruz had denounced the ad.

Again read the whole thing.
