CNN, Not Cruz Team, Announced Carson ‘Taking Break’ Before Iowa Caucus

Fifteen minutes before the Iowa caucus officially opened, CNN reported the following regarding the suspension of Dr. Ben Carson’s campaign:

From Trevor Loudon​:

“CNN, NOT Cruz staff, responsible for Ben Carson campaign suspension ‘rumor’. For those saying that Cruz apologizing means he is guilty – you need to pay attention to what he actually said:

‘Ted Cruz said in a statement that ‘when our political team saw the CNN post saying that Dr. Carson was not carrying on to New Hampshire and South Carolina,’ his campaign ‘updated grassroots leaders just as we would with any breaking news story.’ He conceded, however, that what the Cruz team ‘then should have done was send around the follow-up statement from the Carson campaign clarifying that he was indeed staying in the race when that came out.

Basically, the Cruz team should have known better than to trust the media.'”

And here are multiple tweets prior to Iowa caucus citing CNN–and not Sen. Cruz.  Note the date and times of the tweets:
