    Anyone else noticed the Breitbart meltdown this morning? I think that they are officially in MSNBC-type credibility territory now.

    Seems like the tone of their headlines this morning are more anti Cruz than usual.

    "Hillary fires at Ted: Mean-Sirited Guy."
    "Establishment Gives Cruz Big Win."
    "Miller: Trump Won on the Issues... Republican Donor Class Has Lost."
    "Trump: 'Trojan Horse' Used by 'Party Bosses'."

    It looks like those headlines are based on quotes of other people. How is that a meltdown?

    The editor decides which stories to run. Obviously they are deciding to run anti-Cruz articles after he had a decisive victory in Wisconsin. Where are the stories about Cruz uniting Republicans in Wisconsin? About him beating Trump by 13 points? About the Evangelicals coalescing around Cruz?

    Breitbart has never had any credibility as an unbiased news source. Seems they are even further on the fringe now. As one of their staff members said when he quit, Breitbart has simply become a super-pac for Trump.

    I have given up on the media outlets, and now only trust what I see on the internet forums and FaceBook, Twitter, etc.
