Pistol Pointed at Ted Cruz's Head in Series of AP Photos
Tune in to "The Kelly File" tonight for reaction, starting at 9p ET on Fox News Channel.
The Associated Press is under fire after it published a series of photos which show a pistol pointed at Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s head.
The photos were taken at a “Celebrate the 2nd Amendment Event” at the CrossRoads Shooting Sports in Johnston, Iowa this weekend.
Charlie Neibergall captured the photos, which show the 2016 presidential contender speaking in front of a poster of a pistol, which is pointed at his head.
The Associated Press has since removed the photos. AP said in a statement:
"Five of the photos published by AP included images of guns seen on a wall in the background so that it appeared a pistol was pointed at Sen. Cruz’s head. The images were not intended to portray Sen. Cruz in a negative light.”
