Celebrity Cruz?

CambriaNovember 21, 2013 

We have only been in San Luis Obispo County for seven months, and until recently, have really appreciated The Tribune’s impartial coverage. Your front page Sunday, Nov. 17, with the Cruzes on it was disappointing. It showed them like a celebrity couple that we should all strive to be. No matter what party you are, we all know the government shutdown was not a good thing for any of us.

The story quotes, “We were in no way well known,” and then you say that changed when Ted Cruz became the Tea Party spokesperson? Hmm, is this really Sunday frontpage news? Looks as if you are trying to let the paper and Mrs. Cruz’s words soften his far-right reputation. It didn’t work for me.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
