YOU STAY CLASSY, CNN:

Washington (CNN) Ted Cruz obtained new ammunition Tuesday to shoot at his favorite bogeyman, the mainstream media, after The Washington Post depicted his two young daughters as monkey-like characters doing the bidding of their father.

Beyond the “monkey-like characters” weasel words, nice eliminationist rhetoric there. This from the network where in January 2011, in the immediate wake of the shooting of Democrat Gabrielle Giffords, Republican-appointed Federal Judge¬†John Roll and 17 others, anchor John King “issued a prompt on-air apology minutes after a guest on his program used the term ‘crosshairs’ during a segment: ‘We’re trying to get away from using that kind of language.'”

Feel free to start anytime, fellas.
