What The MSM’s Attacks on Ben Carson Looks Like to Us

CNS reports:
At Tuesday night’s GOP presidential debate in Milwaukee, Wis., retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson said he has no problem with being vetted as a presidential candidate, but he does have a problem with being lied about and the media reporting it as truth.
“The fact of the matter is, you know, what — we should vet all candidates. I have no problem with being vetted. What I do have a problem with is being lied about and then putting that out there as truth,” Carson said.

“You recently railed against the double- standard in the media, sir, that seems obsessed with inconsistencies and potential exaggerations in your life story, but looked the other way when it came to then-Senator Barack Obama’s. Still, as a candidate whose brand has always been trust, are you worried your campaign — which you’ve always said, sir, is bigger than you — is now being hurt by you?” Fox Business host Neil Cavuto asked.
“Well, first of all, thank you not asking me what I said in the 10th grade. I appreciate that,” Carson joked.
“The fact of the matter is, you know, what — we should vet all candidates. I have no problem with being vetted. What I do have a problem with is being lied about and then putting that out there as truth, and I don’t even mind that so much, if they do it about — with everybody, like people on the other side,” he added.

Carson pointed out as an example when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told her daughter Chelsea “and a government official that no,” Benghazi “was a terrorist attack, and then tells everybody else that it was a video.”
“Where I came from, they call that a lie, and I think that’s very different from, you know, somebody misinterpreting, when I said that I was offered a scholarship to West Point, that is the words that they used. But, I’ve had many people come and say the same thing to me,” Carson said.
