At Tuesday night’s town hall on CNN, Ted Cruz started out by criticizing the outlet for giving rival Donald Trump so many “hours of free media.”
“How many hours of free media does CNN and Fox and every other station — you let him call in. And for a year he got $2 billion in free media,” Cruz said.
But CNN host Anderson Cooper wasn’t having any of it. Right away he shot back at Cruz, “We’ve asked you for interviews pretty much every day and you’ve declined every offer on my program,” said Cooper.
