[See NewsBusters for more.] Hillary Clinton on Tuesday night went down to defeat in Indiana. This is her 18th primary or caucus loss to Bernie Sanders. The former Secretary of State has won an unimpressive 23 times against the aging socialist. Yet, ABC and CBS largely glossed over Clinton’s string of losses and insisted the important part is that she’ll win the nomination.
On Tuesday morning's Fox & Friends, Trump spread an unproven National Enquirer smear claiming Ted Cruz's father was "caught on camera" next to John F.

I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous....I mean, what was he doing — what was he doing with Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before the death? Before the shooting? It’s horrible.”
Mark Levin on Tuesday ripped into Fox News for allowing Donald Trump to smear Ted Cruz with JFK assassination lies.
Senator Bernie Sanders scored a major victory in his fight against the Clinton political machine Tuesday night in the Indiana primary. Even with that victory the Hillary Clinton friendly media is still calling for Sanders to suspend his campaign and drop out of the race. “Staying in this race, aren't you effectively making it harder for the Democrats to beat the man who you say would be so bad?” inquired CNN’s Dana Bash to Sanders over the phone.
