Dr. Ben Carson Takes on the Media Over THIS!


On Friday evening, Dr. Ben Carson held a contentious Press Conference with reporters to address his West Point Scholarship Controversy and questions surrounding other things in his biography – particularly from his youth. Carson did not back down one iota. He blistered the media, even telling reporters he thinks the questions they are raising are “going to help me,” because people are fed up with the media.

Carson maintained he did receive a Scholarship offer – or what he said he regarded as an offer – when he met with Gen. William Westmoreland in Detroit at an event in 1969. But Carson, when asked, could not remember who made that offer.

Carson went after the media asking why they are so interested in him but have never investigated Barack Obama and why he refuses to this day to unseal his college records.


When the Politico story on Carson initially broke – and was reported by numerous other outlets that the Carson Campaign had admitted they fabricated the West Point Scholarship – I thought the Carson Campaign would be dead in the water. But, as Politico has changed its story and the headline, Carson was able to push back effectively and make the media the story.

Assuming no other issues arise with Carson’s biography – if there are no other shoes to drop – I think Carson will weather this and may even turn it to his advantage.

    People understand what the media is doing. The Media are so stupid to play theses games. The American people has woke up to the media games. The more they go after Carson and Trump the more people like them. Their rate go up.
