Rush Limbaugh opened his friday show with a bombshell expose' of a collaborative effort to sabotage the Cruz speech event at the New York GOP Gala.
The sound feed, which worked perfectly all night, suddenly switched off the Cruz microphone as he was in the first portion of his speech. But all the other microphones were switched on to full gain to magnify every "house" sound, including the noisey catering staff who decided to start serving the dinner meal as Cruz was introducing his remarks.
To the people in the room, all seemed perfectly normal and thus the prank continued.
Fox News was the sole media outlet carrying the event live. They let the prank play out without any explanation or even acknowledgement of a sound glitch. Then they cut out of the event before Cruz finished, effectively shorting him of an equal opportunity.
then they went immediately to the set of the Sean Hannity show, where Sean was expressing sympathy for his studio guest, Cory Lewandowski of the Trump Campaign.
Then Fox continued to pitch the narrative of Cruz being too boring for the crowd and the attendees tuned him out simply out of disinterest. John Roberts is pitching that spin even as I write this post.
