The race in Texas between Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke has been getting a lot of attention.
It’s one that Democrats feel they actually have a chance at taking away from Republicans. So, a ton of money has been sunk into the race and the media has been heavily covering it, essentially from the beginning.
Now, part of that media coverage includes rallies, high-profile endorsements, debates, examining, overanalyzing every tweet sent out by the two campaigns and also interviews with the candidates themselves. But whenever the media gets involved, especially the national media, you can bet they are likely to slant their coverage in one way or the other. But nine times out 10, you ask a reporter/anchor about biased and they are going to vehemently disagree with you. However, one clip posted on social media that may prove otherwise.
ABC News Politics’ Paula Faris recently profiled the Democrat looking to end Ted Cruz’s political career. In the clip posted by ABC News on Twitter she’s following O’Rourke and glowingly refers to him as “a rock star,” telling the Democrat “you’re a rock star, you really are.” In a voiceover she says “you can’t go 10 feet without an interruption from a Beto backer.”
Really? 10 feet? C’mon, and this is supposedly coming from an unbiased reporter.
Watch the entire clip:
