Poll Context: Geraldo Rivera said Thursday night that Ted Cruz’s attack on “New York values” is actually a form of anti-Semitism. In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “O’Reilly Factor,” Mr. Rivera, also a Fox News correspondent, said that Mr. Cruz’s explanation that he meant to attack a certain sort of liberalism didn’t hold water because ‘He could have very easily said that.’
Mr. Rivera called the “New York values” comment an example of “stinking anti-Semitic implications” pandering to Iowa voters, the nominal audience for the debate during which Mr. Cruz made the remarks about real-estate tycoon Donald Trump.
What do you think? Were his comments anti-Semitic?
