<p>On Monday night, the major broadcast networks devoted full segments to the announcement from Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.) that he will seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, with CBS touting how he could face <strong>&ldquo;some rough sledding&rdquo; </strong>if he seeks support from<strong> &ldquo;mainstream Republicans&rdquo; </strong>and ABC made sure to point out his promises of <strong>&ldquo;no abortion, no gay marriage, no gun control,&rdquo; </strong>and <strong>&ldquo;no IRS.&rdquo;&nbsp;</strong></p>

<p>ABC&rsquo;s <em>World News Tonight </em>made the list of conservative viewpoints the centerpiece of their coverage, mentioning it three times with the first coming during an opening tease from anchor David Muir:<strong> &ldquo;Off and running. The first major candidate announcing he&#39;s running for president. Promising no abortion, no gay marriage, no gun control, no IRS.&rdquo;</strong></p>
