• Ben Carson Reveals What ‘Biased’ Media Has Done For His Campaign

    GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson predicted on Friday, while furiously refuting media reports that claimed he lied about his childhood, that the media piling on him was going to help him because people understand “that this is a witch hunt.”

    And he was right.

    The retired neurosurgeon pulled in $3.5 million in campaign donations this week along with 100,000 new followers on Facebook.

    “What I have always said about the media is being proven for everyone to see,” Carson said in a Facebook post. “But I have news for them. This week alone we raised $3,500,000.00 from almost 70,000 donations. Just here on Facebook we have gained over 100,000 new followers this week.”

    “Their bias will only make us grow bigger, better and bolder!” he added.

    Politico published a story Friday alleging that the Carson campaign admitted he lied about being offered a full scholarship to West Point and claiming that West Point did not offer scholarships. Yet, Carson had admitted no such thing and West Point has offered full scholarships in past.

    Carson’s campaign took in $20.8 million the last fundraising quarter which was the most in the GOP field.
