    MSM meme — Elizabeth Warren is nicely bold while Ted Cruz is offensively aggressive

    MSM meme — Elizabeth Warren is nicely bold while Ted Cruz is offensively aggressive

    Look at how dreamy Morning Joe treats Elizabeth Warren’s “grilling” of bank regulators (it hardly was a grilling, just a single inane gotcha question she repeated over and over for dramatic effect):

    Now contrast that with how Morning Joe treats Ted Cruz’s grilling of Chuck Hagel, via Mike Allen of Politico (which is pushing really hard the Ted Cruz is extremist meme):

    Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

    Politico even is in love with the fact that Warren will not make herself available to reporters, a continuation of her campaign tactics.

    Your media bias in action, and in video.

    Warren’s image is being groomed (for higher office?), while the Stop Extremist Ted Cruz meme develops.

    Can you imagine what the reaction will be if Cruz ever takes a drink of water?

    Update:  I told you so, it’s why we have preserved the months of research at and will continue to add to it:

    Imagine if Ted Cruz had also taken a drink of water……

    We always get to see who really terrifies the Left: Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz & Allen West – the Tea Party.

    What is it with the Progressives so bent out of shape over latinos drinking water? Are they afraid of Montezuma’s Revenge?

    Dos cervezas por favor, muy frejas.

    Like Breitbart said, it’s all about the narrative.

    Note a coupla thangs…

    1. “taking to trial” CAN mean you forced to settlement WITHOUT trial. (Most litigation never gets to trial…especially when brought by the Federal govt.)

    2. but wasn’t Warren indicting the Obamic DoJ and regulators? Why, yes, she WAS.

      If companies insisted on going to trial on everything the entire regulatory structure would collapse. Same with criminal defendants and the criminal justice system. Plus, what would it mean for regulators when companies started winning their cases? Inane was a very kind description of her questioning.

      @Rags: I was thinking about this the other day. I’m old enough to remember the S&L crisis of the late 80s early ’90s. Keating was the media figurehead for it because they could link him to John McCain and four other senators (the Keating Five, the media dubbed them), but hundreds of S&L execs went to jail when Reagan and Bush41 were in office.

      Then after Clinton’s tech bubble burst in the first months of Bush43’s term, think about all the hucksters who went to jail: Tyco exec Kozlowski, Worlcomm exec Ebbers, the guys who ran Adelphia and Enron, and others. All high profile prosecutions that occured while Bush41 was in office.

      I’m not sure if fraud at Wall Street firms can be proven as part of the subprime mortgage crisis, but it’s certainly a widely held belief that fraud did occur. Yet no senior Wall Street execs have been “perp walked” in orange jumpsuits under Obama.

        Yes, Jon Corzine “disappears” over a billion dollars of his clients’ money, and not only does he not go to trial, he never even gets charged with any crime. And I’m sure the fact that he is a Democrat and an Obama supporter had nothing to do with Lizzie Warren’s lack of outrage over his obvious corruption.

        Yep. Me, too, on the old enough part. I ALSO remember that a major cause of the S&L crisis was the market distorting “capital investment” tax provision that was suddenly killed, leaving a huge mass of investments people had made under a totally rational set of assumptions worth much less than they expected.

        This will happen every time government distorts markets, either in big or small crises, as markets reassert themselves. It is a matter of pure cause >>>> effect.
