Ted Cruz said on "The O'Reilly Factor" that he didn't get as much airtime as some other candidates at the GOP debate because media interviewers are often more concerned with what will get ratings than real issues.

He said he's not discouraged, however, because he believes that the American people are less interested in "schoolyard insults" than they are in substance.

"On this stage, there were a lot of what I call 'campaign conservatives' people who talk a good game, but they haven't walked the walk," Cruz said. "And I think people are looking for a consistent conservative, someone who's been the same yesterday, today and tomorrow."

He said from amnesty to ObamaCare, the Second Amendment to religious freedom, he's been that consistent candidate who's done what he's said he'll do.
