Make your cross the grain cuts first the with the grain. This will clean up any tear out.

ejant is correct you need to do an end grain first then rotate the piece and do a with the grain cut followed by the next end grain and lastly the side with the grain.

Now if you still have problems things to check for are a dull bit, taking to heavy a cut but give above mentioned method a try and get back to us if you are still having problems.
