GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson criticises media

(REUTERS) – Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson was on the defensive during a news conference in Florida on Friday night.

An article published earlier in the day called into question his account of being offered a scholarship to Westpoint Military Academy.

Carson took a combative tone while discussing the incident saying the media would stop at nothing to uncover dirt.


“They have been talking to everybody I’ve ever known everybody I’ve ever seen. There’s got to be a scandal there’s got to be some nurse he’s had an affair with, there’s got to be something, they are getting desperate, so next week it will be my kindergarten teacher said I peed in my pants. I mean it’s just ridiculous.”

Carson said his supporters would see through the “subterfuge”… after the speech, supporters seemed to corroborate that.


“I know that people can dig up stuff and try to make it worse than it is but I won’t judge anybody based on that, I listen to the facts and make my decision based on that.”

Carson’s account of how he attempted to stab a friend in his troubled youth also came under renewed scrutiny on Friday.

Carson is currently tied with Donald Trump in the polls.
