After Much Hype From Fox, Ted Cruz Closes GOP Debate With Plug For 13 Hours


Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-TX) began his closing statement on the Fox Business GOP debate with a plug for Michael Bay's Benghazi movie, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi. Cruz's movie endorsement parrots Fox News' campaign to use the movie to undermine Hillary Clinton. Recently Fox has co-opted the film as an attack against her presidential run and devoted a substantial number of segments to promoting the film, including an upcoming hour-long special on The Kelly File. A 13 Hours reference by Rick Santorum also made its way into Fox Business' undercard debate earlier in the evening. From the January 14 Fox Business' Republican Candidates Debate:

TED CRUZ: "13 Hours." Tomorrow morning, a new movie will debut about the incredible bravery of the men fighting for their lives in Benghazi and the politicians that abandoned them.
