The press may not always be a politician’s best friend, but they know the role it plays. And Thursday morning, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, came to the defense of the reporters who were arrested Wednesday night while covering the protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

Cruz took to Facebook, saying “reporters should never be detained” for doing their jobs.
