Speaking about Tea Party-favorite Ted Cruz's recent victory in the Texas primary for U.S. Senate, George Will told the panel on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that the media's constant discrediting of the Tea Party represents a "journalistic malpractice" in America.
And while the mainstream media continues dismiss the Tea Party, they just keep electing politicians, Will explained.
"Another example of journalistic malpractice in this country -- the constant writing off of the Tea Party, which just goes about its business of electing senators. They'll elect Cruz, they'll probably elect Mourdock in Indiana, they'll probably elect Deb Fischer in Nebraska," he said. "Often, George [Stephanopoulos], the most interesting and important fights in American politics aren't between the parties, they're within the parties. People say about Ted Cruz: 'well, he's part of the anti-intellectual Tea Party.' Well, Princeton, Harvard, clerked for Justice Rehnquist, I don't think so."
On a roll, Will continued: "Then they say: 'Well, he doesn't play well with others.' And people in Texas say: 'He doesn't play well with others? Send him to Washington.'"
And before he was done, he just had to add: "At Ted Cruz's victory party, they served Chick-fil-A."
