Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is still talk­ing. But if the point of this long speech is — oth­er than de­fund­ing the Af­ford­able Care Act — to get at­ten­tion for his cause, it doesn’t look like it’s work­ing that well with the na­tion­al me­dia.

Most ma­jor news­pa­per front pages from across the coun­try don’t men­tion this speech Wed­nes­day morn­ing, al­though the ju­ni­or sen­at­or from Texas is get­ting ma­jor play on the front pages of his home state pa­pers.

Here’s a look at how news­pa­pers are cov­er­ing Cruz across the coun­try, cour­tesy of the New­seum:
