In case you missed it, Tea Party Senator Ted Cruz has been revealed as a modern-day Joe McCarthy, thanks to the reporting of the New Yorker. The magazine quoted him a few months ago as saying Harvard Law School had “twelve” Communists who “believed in the overthrow of the U.S. Government” on its faculty when he attended in the early nineties. That allegation is disputed by one of Cruz’ former professors, Charles Fried, a Republican who served as Solicitor General in the Reagan administration. But yesterday, Megyn Kelly, in a segment obviously designed to present Cruz as a conservative victim of liberals, “asked,” when confronted with Cruz’ McCarthy-esque allegation, “But do you have reason to believe that’s not true?”
Either Kelly did no research for this segment or she was only interested in presenting one side of the picture. Regardless, she once again proved that on Fox News, asking loaded questions is more important than imparting information.

The foxies are so wont to going on and on about mere exposure to progressive ideas being supposedly sufficient to pervert young minds.
