<p>The 27 March 2016 edition of Fox News Channel&#39;s&nbsp;<em>MediaBuzz</em> critiqued the media&#39;s attention on the <em>National Enquirer</em>&#39;s cover story about multiple alleged affairs involving Senator Ted Cruz. Howard Kurtz noted that &quot;the dilemma for the press here is whether to run with these unproven allegations.&quot; The Daily Caller&#39;s Gayle Trotter asserted that the press &quot;shouldn&#39;t run with it, because the story itself shows that the National Enquirer has a complete lack of evidence.&quot; Ashley Parker of the <em>New York Times</em> underlined that Cruz&#39;s &quot;unprompted&quot; response to the story &quot;makes it more complicated,&quot; as the media reports on what the candidates say.</p>
