The Ted Cruz Media Blackout

Though he got major coverage in Texas, national papers panned his marathon Senate speech.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is still talking. But if the point of this long speech is — other than defunding the Affordable Care Act — to get attention for his cause, it doesn't look like it's working that well with the national media.

Most major newspaper front pages from across the country don't mention this speech Wednesday morning, although the junior senator from Texas is getting major play on the front pages of his home state papers.
