Ted Cruz Argues That The Media Supports His Rival Donald Trump

On Monday, Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz railed against the media for supporting GOP presidential front-runner, Donald Trump. During an interview with Hallie Jackson on MSNBC in Marion, Ind., Cruz was asked what would be in store for his campaign if he loses the Hoosier State primary on Tuesday. Cruz then referenced an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd on Sunday where the host consistently asked Cruz if he would support Trump as the nominee--Cruz would not answer Todd's question nine times.

Cruz said, "I think one question the voters are asking at home is, 'Why is the mainstream media so desperate to get conservatives to abandon our principles and support Donald Trump?'" Jackson pushed back. Cruz then said, "Virtually all of the network execs are partisan, liberal Democrats. And if Donald Trump is the nominee, from a partisan Democrat's perspective, it's a win-win."

On Monday, several Trump supporters crashed a Cruz event and told the senator to "do the math" and drop out of the race.

Cruz insisted on MSNBC, "We are headed to the convention." Cruz added, "The reason that Donald Trump is so desperate to get everyone to call this race over — and the reason why so many of his media acolytes echo that sentiment — is that Donald knows he cannot earn a majority at the convention of the delegates who've been elected by the people."
