Bull's eye? AP defends itself over controversial Ted Cruz photo

The Associated Press has come under fire in social media for a photo of Ted Cruz at a campaign event in which a drawing of a handgun is pointing directly at the senator’s head.

Taken from the candidate’s right-hand side, the images captured Cruz, who was at a campaign event at CrossRoads Shooting Sports in Johnston, Iowa, in front of a large poster about safe handling procedures for firearms while speaking about the need to defend Americans’ Second Amendment rights.

Social media commentators and conservative websites were quick to point out the apparently hostile images and suggested that it would not have been allowed by editors if another candidate was in the photo.

“How would the world respond if the name on those photos read … Hillary Clinton?” the website Breitbart.com wondered.
