The Texas Republican may have inadvertently made the case for a Sanders presidency on the latest episode of his podcast, “Verdict with Ted Cruz.”
It happened when the senator attempted to claim without evidence that if Sanders were elected, conservative podcasts such as his own would be censored.
“As bad as [Big Tech is] now, in a Democratic administration, in a Bernie Sanders administration, they would — I am not exaggerating when I say this podcast could very well be off the air,” Cruz said.
Turns out, that could be a selling point based on the cheeky reactions of Twitter users.
Of course, some “killjoys” had to point out just how ludicrous Cruz’s claim was.
This is so divorced from reality. “Big tech” companies are not harming conservatives. Cruz’s podcast is hanging at #1. Almost all the top political podcasts are conservative hosts. The right has benefit far more from alternate media platforms “big tech” created than the left. https://t.co/GCQDB0Uxlt
