Texas Senator Ted Cruz currently finds himself in a war of words with Daily Show host Trevor Noah after the 50-year-old shared his displeasure for one of the segments on the show.

Noah was discussing the Congressional reapportionment due to population shifts in the U.S. which caused New York to lose a U.S. House seat; meanwhile, Texas picks up two.

The segment didn’t necessarily mention Cruz by name but did show a photo of the Texas senator to explain why birth rates are falling. However, that joke didn’t sit well with Cruz, who responded on Twitter.

“Trevor Noah whines that people are fleeing high-tax blue states & moving in droves to low-tax states like Texas, where the jobs are,” Cruz tweeted. “Doesn’t understand why people like freedom.”

It didn’t take long for Noah to respond on Twitter, and the comedian decided to use the fleeing and Texas against Cruz. “Not sure I’d be using the words “fleeing” and “Texas” in the same sentence, Senator Cancun,” Noah tweeted.

Cruz wouldn’t let Noah have the last word has the senator would respond to the Daily Show host’s joke. “I wear your scorn with pride. I remember when the Daily Show was funny,” Cruz tweeted.

Then former Daily Show host Jon Stewart came in to play the moderator role in this Twitter beef between Noah and Cruz. “Ummm … you remember last night?? Bravo,” Stewart tweeted. The Texas senator responded to Stewart’s initial tweet. “See? That was funny. Not true, but funny. (The show was much better when the host wasn’t an angry, woke, partisan scold.).”

Noah would eventually have the last word in his Twitter beef with Cruz. “And with that, Ted Cruz has officially fought back harder against a tweet from a late-night show than he ever did when Trump called his wife ugly,” Noah tweeted.

CNN host Brian Stelter is set to depart after his weekly media show, Reliable Sources has been cancelled.

In a statement to NPR, Stelter said “It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential,” noting that Sunday would be the final episode.

According to a report from The Daily Beast, Stelter had been at odds with the direction of the network after the departure of CNN President Jeff Zucker.

Stelter came to CNN after working as a media reporter for The New York Times. CNN President Chris Licht informed Stelter, the host of the network’s longest running show, of the cancellation yesterday.

“CNN will end its Reliable Sources program on Sunday, August 21st. As a result Brian Stelter will leave the company. We appreciate his contributions to the network and wish him well as he embarks on new endeavors,” a network spokesperson told Mediaite.

Stelter had agreed to host a daily episode of Reliable Sources on CNN+, but the streaming platform was disbanded shortly thereafter.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham criticized a writer for The Atlantic  Tuesday after she claimed he attempted to “villainize” people who pray the rosary. 

In the article, Daniel Panneton asks why AR 15 rifles are showing up besides rosary beads online. 

“Just as the AR-15 rifle has become a sacred object for Christian nationalists in general, the rosary has acquired a militaristic meaning for radical-traditional (or “rad trad”) Catholics,” the article read.

“I am looking at the glass half-full,” Ingraham said. “Just because they demonize the rosary that must be something I should be doing more of.” 

Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo chimed in, offering that Christians have been praying the rosary for centuries adding the writer is probably,” filled with religious animus” and that “he’s afraid of faith.” 

Ingraham pointed out that The Atlantic has since changed the title of the article from “How the Rosary Became an Extremist Symbol” to “How Extremist Gun Culture Is Trying to Co-opt the Rosary.”
