TEXT HIGHLIGHTS:

Chris Moody, Senior Digital Correspondent for CNN Politics on his scoop from Monday night that reported Ben Carson was not traveling straight to New Hampshire following the end of the Iowa Caucuses: “The reporting stands on its own.  I don't have to necessarily comment or extrapolate on it…….Let me give you a tick-tock about what happened that night.  I was assigned to cover Carson's victory party in West Des Moines, in Iowa.  His campaign, two sources told me on the record told me that instead of going straight to New Hampshire or straight to South Carolina as most candidates do, he’s going to take just a short, brief rest.  They described it as a deep breath, by going home to Florida, get his affairs in order, and head to Washington, D.C., for the National Prayer Breakfast.  Then, after that, head to New Hampshire for the debate. And so, I reported all of those things in order.  He's going to Florida.  He's - then I said, he's not dropping out.  Ted Cruz's campaign cherry-picked part of that information, and not only sent messages to precinct captain on e-mail but also called and said he's suspending campaigning - which is something I or no one else at CNN ever said.  We also had a story on CNNPolitics.com that had all of that information. So, either Ted Cruz's campaign just stopped reading, or - as others have said, it was something that was misleading intentionally.

Larry Sabato, Director, UVA Center for Politics on the controversy surrounding the Cruz campaign’s actions during the Iowa Caucuses and his assertions about CNN: “Oh, there's no question about it.  This isn't a close call.  Cruz is to blame - Cruz and his staff.

Sabato on the spread of falsifications in the 2016 campaign:  “Brian, I think one of the most disturbing things about a very disturbing election cycle, for me, has been the growth of this idea that somehow we're in a post-factual era.  Well, God help us if we're in a post-factual era."

Moody on Cruz’s false assertions about CNN’s reporting: “But again, it was never reported on CNN television, digital, or social media that Ben Carson was dropping out.  In fact, almost in the same breath, it was reported that he was staying in the race, the exact opposite."
