Carson Says ‘Liberal Media’ Is ‘Afraid’ of Him

Ben Carson on Monday accused the news media of failing to cover his presidential campaign fairly because “they don’t want people to take me seriously.”

The Republican candidate said on Newsmax TV that mainstream reporters “are very afraid of my message getting out there because it flies directly in the face of the secular progressive movement. I am a huge threat to them and therefore if they can find a kink in the armor and they can concentrate on that, they can get you off of the things that are so important to our nation.”

Carson named CNN as one of the news organizations that is harming is White House bid. He said the network misinterpreted his proposal to employ drones to help secure the Mexican border. After Carson explained his plan Sunday on “State of the Union,” CNN reported that he favored killing undocumented immigrants with drones. According to the retired neurosurgeon, he was only advocating attacks on caves in which immigrants allegedly hide.

Carson called CNN’s reporting “certainly problematic” and typical of the “liberal media in general.”

“When I made my initial comments about drones and all the media was there, I said some of you, some of the left wing of you, will take these comments and try to make people think that I want to kill people with drone strikes. I do not want to do that. But you will say that anyway, and they went out and did it,” the candidate told Newsmax TV.
