• Even This Democrat Admits Media Attacks On Carson Are Unfair

    Even Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says the mainstream media’s scrutiny of Ben Carson is unfair.

    NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd asked Sanders on Sunday morning what he thought about “the Ben Carson stuff.”

    “You have seen some people leak out stuff you wrote 30 and 40 years ago,” Todd said. “Is this fair game?”

    “No,” Sanders replied.

    The self-ascribed socialist argued that the interviews with the GOP presidential candidate about things he’s said of his past have been “interesting,” but the American people are more concerned with more important issues.

    “It gets back to media coverage of these campaigns. How we lived our lives, what happened to us 30 or 40 or 50 years ago is interesting, and not unimportant,” he said.

    Sanders then ripped his Republican opponent on issues such as Medicare and climate change, without hesitation.

    “You know what is more important to me about Ben Carson, and what I think is more important to the American people: Ben Carson, as I understand it, wants to abolish Medicare — how’s that?” Sanders said. “You’ve got millions of old people whose entire healthcare existence rests on Medicare — he wants to get rid of it. That’s of some significance of me, actually more important that what may or may not have happened 40 or 50 years ago.”
