SANDERS: MEDIA SCRUTINY OF BEN CARSON IS WHY PEOPLE HATE POLITICS

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Democratic presidential candidate Sen.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said the aggressive media scrutiny of Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson is the “reason so many people are turned off to the political process.”
When asked if the scrutiny of Carson it is fair game Sanders said, “No. Look, I listened to the interview with Dr. Carson and it’s interesting. But you know what, Chuck? The American people want to know why the middle-class of this country is disappearing. Why we have 47 million people living in poverty.



So I guess you also agree with Bernie when he said the same thing about Hillary's email?

Part of what is happening here is that Carson has no public policy or voting record to run on. Nada. Nothing. It is all just words. That means everything he has said and done outside of politics and what he has said about himself and others, particularly things that he has repeated over and over again like the Westpoint lie are all going to get even more scrutiny, as they should. How many more lies are lurking in his past? We shall see because it will all come out at some point.

Bernie has since backed off that life-line he threw Hillary Clinton. He is now questioning her emails on a private server and the top secret information found as well as her judgement.

Try to keep up.



No kidding? Really? Gee thanks.

Most of the liberal mainstream media is either downplaying the story or ignoring it completely. Easy to understand in that they have joined Obama and The DNC in deciding that Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic candidate you will be voting for.

Hey! Imbecile! His point is that the American People are turned off to politics because of what is not be covered. Not what is being covered. Bernie has consistently maintained that the media should cover the issues that are important to the future of Middle Class Americans.

Beyond that it is extremely important that Carson's claims be examined. Being President of the United States is not brain surgery. Carson's narrative is part of what he says qualifies him to be President of the United States. If his narrative is a lie how will you know who you are voting for?

Bernie Sanders said exactly what most people are also saying.
The American People want the media to report on the important issues on today.

Your “it is extremely important that Carson's claims be examined” is not equally applied to Hillary Clinton is it. The same criteria you claim was not applied to Obama was it?

The so-called “inconsistencies” are only in the eyes of the left-wing media. You should notice that examination is only one sided.

Bernie Sanders dissent of such tactics should tell the liberals that fair-minded people are tired of their bias.

Cute piece of selective editing. Of course you left out the context but that is all that the far-left can do since their candidate has no plan on any issue important to the people.

Even when Hillary Clinton does a speech on all the handouts she will give she never mentions how she intends to pay for it.
Hint to the liberals: freebies are not free.

You might want to check to see which presidents have lowered the deficits and which have blown them up over the last few decades. Hint - it wasn't a Democrat that stated that deficits don't matter.

Welfare cheat Ron is wrong again:

Obama Has Now Increased Debt More than All Presidents from George Washington Through George H.W. Bush Combined
By Terence P. Jeffrey | October 5, 2011 | 2:31 PM EDT

http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/obama-has-now-increased-debt-more-all-p residents-george-washington-through-george-hw

(CNSNews.com) - The Obama administration passed another fiscal milestone this week, according to new data released by the Treasury Department. As of the close of business on Oct. 3, the total national debt was $14,837,099,271,196.71—up about $44.8 billion from Sept. 30.

That means that in the less-than-three-years Obama has been in office, the federal debt has increased by $4.212 trillion--more than the total national debt of about $4.1672 trillion accumulated by all 41 U.S. presidents from George Washington through George H.W. Bush combined.

This $4.212-trillion increase in the national debt means that during Obama’s term the federal government has already borrowed about an additional $35,835 for every American household--or $44,980 for every full-time private-sector worker. (According to the Census Bureau there were about 117,538,000 households in the country in 2010, and, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were about 93,641,000 full-time private-sector workers.)
When Obama was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009, according to the Treasury Department, the total national debt stood at $10,626,877,048,913.08.

At the end of January 1993, the month that President George H. W. Bush left office, the total national debt was $4.1672 trillion, according to the Treasury. Thus, the total national debt accumulated by the first 41 presidents combined was about $44.8 billion less than the approximately $4.212 trillion in new debt added during Obama’s term.

As of Monday, Obama had been in office 986 days—or about 32 and a half months. During that time, the debt increased at an average pace of $4.27 billion per day. Were that rate to continue until Obama’s term ends on Jan. 20, 2013, the debt would then stand at about $16.86534 trillion—an increase of more than $6.2 trillion for Obama’s four years.
That would equal nearly $53,000 for each American household or more than $66,00 for each full-time private-sector worker.
That total national debt did not exceed $6.2 trillion until 2002, when George W. Bush was president.

Photoronnie that article you posted is complete crapola.

Percent change is a very misleading metric on this topic.

PRes. Obama is about to reach a debt load which exceeds our entire GDP, but keep on believing
that all this borrowing is "normal"

Much of the way that the national debt is perceived is based on the methodology being used. The comparative method that the right favors is very cut and dried in that if it happened on Obama's watch it is his baby. History in this sense simply consists of snap shots.

This article takes a more diachronic view of history.

quote:
Bottom Line: It's not fair to blame the debt situation on Obama, singularly because the debt numerically went up more than it did under Bush. Bush inherited a booming economy at the time of his inauguration, but his handling of many events left the country absolutely devastated; Hurricane Katrina, 9/11 (two unnecessary wars), and the looming recession. Obama inherited a country that couldn't go further down, in one of the worst recessions since the Great Depression. He had to live with the Bush tax cuts for 2 years, and two long, brutal wars for 2 after that.

The total federal debt in relation to the economy is reaching historically high levels — approaching levels not seen since World War II. But it can also be seen that the rise started long before Obama took office.

In fact, the upward trend began with Ronald Reagan’s fiscal 1982 budget, declined somewhat from fiscal 1997 through 2001, and resumed the upward climb with George W. Bush’s first budget in fiscal 2002 (which started Oct. 1, 2001).

And the rise accelerated as the economy slid into the worst recession since the Great Depression, starting in December 2007. As the economy shrank, the debt-to-GDP ratio jumped 5 percentage points in the fiscal year that started Oct. 1, 2007, and another 14.8 percentage points during the following year. Obama took office nearly one-third of the way into that 12-month period. At the time, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office was projecting the deficit for that fiscal year would be $1.2 trillion. It later rose to $1.4 trillion after enactment of Obama’s economic stimulus package, to be followed by back-to-back deficits of nearly $1.3 trillion in fiscal 2010 and $1.3 trillion again in fiscal 2011.



Another chart shows - The Democrats did a much better job of at least limiting the deficit - Bush went from about 58% GDP to 86% GDP. That is a huge jump, especially when compared with Obama''s, from 86% to 96%, a 10% jump.

Now take a look at this pictorial representation of debt ( Obama vs. Bush ):



If we break this down, we can see that the cost of Bush's policies amount to more than five times the cost of Obama's policies. The Bush tax cuts plus the costly Iraq and Afghanistan wars cost about 2.5 trillion dollars in debt. Also, the Bush administration overspending on defense cost another 1.2 trillion, which spiraled the debt out control. Let's now take a look at Obama's policies. Much of his spending has focused on the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, but even more has come from a combination of a two-year extension of the Bush tax cuts and other mandatory spending. However, Obama's increased focus on deficit reduction has paid off significantly in the long run. Automatic spending cuts have reduced the deficit by $503 billion, and cuts to defense and Health Care have amounted to a total of about $400 bilion.

Assuming the accuracy of this chart, we can conclude that: The cost of Bush's policies was $5.1 trillion, and the cost of Obama's policies was a mere $983 billion.

You also have to take into account that the year of 2009, in which the debt escalated rapidly, was not the blame of Obama. A new president is forced to adopt the old president's fiscal policies for one year, before they can implement their own more successfully. Therefore, excluding the stimulus package, one added year of debt can be mostly attributed to Bush and his policies.

"I do not remember this level of scrutiny for one President Barack Obama when he was running — in fact, I remember just the opposite," Carson said in a news conference on Friday.

Really, Dr. Carson? And with that faulty/selective memory we are supposed to elect YOU President? Really?

Watch Trevor Noah School Ben Carson After He Claimed the Media Is Harder on Him Than Obama
By Natasha Noman November 10, 2015

If you ever doubted Trevor Noah's ability to fill the massive vacancy left after Jon Stewart's Daily Show departure, expect to have those doubts erased once and for all.

On Monday night's episode of the Daily Show With Trevor Noah, the 31-year-old host continued Stewart's tradition of taking politicians to task in a way that can make the most self-assured bigwigs want to crawl under a table.

Monday's target? Ben Carson, the GOP presidential candidate who made some questionable claims about the media in a news conference on Friday.

"I do not remember this level of scrutiny for one President Barack Obama when he was running — in fact, I remember just the opposite," Carson said in a news conference on Friday, agitated by what he perceives as the media's poor treatment of him, according to ThinkProgress.

"If you can show me where that's happened with someone else, I will take that statement back," he later added.

For his part, Noah went HAM on the most bizarre of Carson's beef — the media's attempts to debunk the candidate's claim he once stabbed someone.

"That early picture of violence is not recognizable to some who grew up with Carson," one anchor argues in a clip highlighted on the Daily Show With Trevor Noah. "Ten schoolmates and neighbors all said this was not the boy they knew."

"Those claims [of the stabbing] are absolutely true," Carson said, defending his anecdotes of a violent youth, on Fox's the Kelly File.

"Okay, now, let's just take a second," Noah muses. "This is weird for me. Maybe it's me or where I'm from, but this **** is weird. So the media is saying, 'Those rumors about you having a clean record and you being an upstanding member of society are true!' And Ben Carson's, like, 'Bullshit! I'm dangerous! And I tried to kill people! And I'm a bad person! I should be president!'"

Noah categorically discredited Carson's allegations with an aggregate of news clips from 2007 and 2008 about Obama's first presidential campaign; it was a rapid fire of incredulity and skepticism.

Among the quotations the show highlighted, from Obama's rise to the presidency:

"Questions persist about Barack Obama's identity."

"You smoked marijuana, did a little blow, as you put it. Explain that — why did you do it?"

"Do you accept the support of [Nation of Islam's] Louis Farrakhan?"

Then, the most damning question of them all: "Would you vote for a smoker as president?"

The slew of accusations play on, from questioning his patriotism because of his initial refusal to wear an American flag pin to suggesting he is a Muslim, educated in a madrasa.

"Yeah... So, they vetted Obama to the point where they questioned that he was a legitimate, natural born American citizen," Noah concludes. "But at least no one ever accused Obama of not stabbing a guy. He got off easy."

Point: Noah.

interesting- I wonder why the media did not try and find all of Obamas middle school and high school stoner or snorting buddies to further investigate his drug use claims to see how big of a user he was? instead the media is fully placated with Obamas response and case closed. Vetting is completed .





Point: Ben Carson

Another selective memory. I know, 2007/08 was a long time ago, so how can anyone be expected to remember anything from back then? Might as well rewrite it I guess.

A comedy routine from Trevor Noah? Wow, that is desperate.

Obama was not vetted by the media

We do not know a lot about Barack Obama from his time before the United States Senate. Much of what we could learn has conveniently disappeared. The few things we do know — like his connections to terrorist Bill Ayers — are dismissed by the media. Obama’s affinity for Ayers’ mentor, Saul Alinsky, an avowed Socialist is ignored by the media. Alinsky is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing. He is often noted for his book Rules for Radicals.

Obama has tried desperately to distance himself from Ayers but Bill Ayers has confirmed what Obama has denied:

We know nothing about Obama’s academic or college financial records. Those documents were sealed and the media never inquired. Many more significant issues have been disregarded by the media:

No, Obama was not vetted by the media. What the left-wing attack sites are doing to Dr. Carson is not vetting, it is vendetta.

Really, Dr. Carson? And with that faulty/selective memory we are supposed to elect YOU President? Really?

Watch Trevor Noah School Ben Carson After He Claimed the Media Is Harder on Him Than Obama
By Natasha Noman November 10, 2015

If you ever doubted Trevor Noah's ability to fill the massive vacancy left after Jon Stewart's Daily Show departure, expect to have those doubts erased once and for all.

On Monday night's episode of the Daily Show With Trevor Noah, the 31-year-old host continued Stewart's tradition of taking politicians to task in a way that can make the most self-assured bigwigs want to crawl under a table.

Monday's target? Ben Carson, the GOP presidential candidate who made some questionable claims about the media in a news conference on Friday.

"I do not remember this level of scrutiny for one President Barack Obama when he was running — in fact, I remember just the opposite," Carson said in a news conference on Friday, agitated by what he perceives as the media's poor treatment of him, according to ThinkProgress.

"If you can show me where that's happened with someone else, I will take that statement back," he later added.

For his part, Noah went HAM on the most bizarre of Carson's beef — the media's attempts to debunk the candidate's claim he once stabbed someone.

"That early picture of violence is not recognizable to some who grew up with Carson," one anchor argues in a clip highlighted on the Daily Show With Trevor Noah. "Ten schoolmates and neighbors all said this was not the boy they knew."

"Those claims [of the stabbing] are absolutely true," Carson said, defending his anecdotes of a violent youth, on Fox's the Kelly File.

"Okay, now, let's just take a second," Noah muses. "This is weird for me. Maybe it's me or where I'm from, but this **** is weird. So the media is saying, 'Those rumors about you having a clean record and you being an upstanding member of society are true!' And Ben Carson's, like, 'Bullshit! I'm dangerous! And I tried to kill people! And I'm a bad person! I should be president!'"

Noah categorically discredited Carson's allegations with an aggregate of news clips from 2007 and 2008 about Obama's first presidential campaign; it was a rapid fire of incredulity and skepticism.

Among the quotations the show highlighted, from Obama's rise to the presidency:

"Questions persist about Barack Obama's identity."

"You smoked marijuana, did a little blow, as you put it. Explain that — why did you do it?"

"Do you accept the support of [Nation of Islam's] Louis Farrakhan?"

Then, the most damning question of them all: "Would you vote for a smoker as president?"

The slew of accusations play on, from questioning his patriotism because of his initial refusal to wear an American flag pin to suggesting he is a Muslim, educated in a madrasa.

"Yeah... So, they vetted Obama to the point where they questioned that he was a legitimate, natural born American citizen," Noah concludes. "But at least no one ever accused Obama of not stabbing a guy. He got off easy."

Point: Noah.

“And the dumbing down of America continues.”

Exactly right.
The media’s failure to properly vet Obama greatly helped America get stuck with a President who most consider the worst in modern history.

Look at the title of this thread: “More lies, er....... fabrications from Dr Carson”

Pops tried to call Dr. Carson a liar. Politico claimed Dr. Carson fabricated x,y and z.

It did not take long before Politico had to change their headline removing the word fabrications and in subsequent edits backtracked.

As the days went by the misrepresentation from the discredited Politico site have been proven wrong and exposed Politico as left-wing hacks.

The liberals here jumped on the attack piece from Politico and ran with the false representations as if they were fact.

When confronted with the facts the liberals threw their standard fit and took the thread off to the place where they are comfortable; the no truth zone.

I am sure that this crap from the left "journalist" has nothing to do with the fact that a recent pole had Carson 10 points ahead of Hillary if that was the matchup. Carson is trusted , Clinton is not
Just another character assassination by the left towards any one they fear, anyone that that might actually expose the real lies, that progressivism is the answer , just like the fly that keeps flying into the windshield.

'Vetting' Ben Carson: The media character assassination game is on

Dr. Ben Carson’s 1990 memoir “Gifted Hands” is being picked apart by the press. On Friday Carson objected to CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota’s line of questioning, and was summarily dismissed. “It’s called vetting in politics."

It was so predictable. In 2012, every single Republican who moved into the number one slot during the primaries was filleted by the leftist press using their fine-tuned art of personal attacks. Michelle Bachman, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney -- all went through the character assassination ringer. Even non-candidate Sarah Palin came under withering media fire, just in case.

"It's called vetting in politics." Understood in that declaration is the presumption that what is being vetted is pertinent to the presidential campaign conversation.

Nothing could be further from the truth.


This vetting process is not designed as a disinterested pathological examination of a pertinent statement or significant event. No, the objective of the vetting process is to impair, even to fatally damage, the image of the conservative target du jour.

No, the objective of the vetting process is to impair, even to fatally damage, the image of the conservative target du jour.

Dr. Ben Carson recently topped the charts in some national polls, and immediately the long knives came out. In 96 hours there were three media bombshells:

1. CNN reported breathlessly that contrary to Carson's assertion that his youth was plagued by anger, it had located no less than nine acquaintances that maintain he was a nice kid a half century ago.

2. Politico published a national broadside suggesting Carson's campaign had admitted he'd "fabricated" a story about applying to West Point.

3. The Wall Street Journal disclosed it could find no records validating his anecdote about a Yale course called "Perceptions 310" and in fact there is no evidence of a course by that name taught.

Ben Carson is a fraud.

Except that he's not.

CNN's piece in no way contradicts the idea Carson had anger issues.

Politico's piece was flat out untrue: The campaign never admitted to a fabrication because Carson never applied, or has ever claimed to have applied to West Point.

As for the Wall Street Journal, the correct name of the course was "Psychology 10."

It continues to amaze me that the national "news" media believe anything, no matter how trite, or how old, is newsworthy -- if the author is a conservative Republican. If the author is a Democrat, everything is unimportant and anything in the past should remain there.

Consider Barack Obama's autobiographies “Dreams from My Father” and “The Audacity of Hope.” During his 2008 campaign there was nothing but fawning praise for these books.

Years after they were published – and after he'd safely won election -- a couple of journalists finally decided to vet him.

Contrary to Obama's oft-repeated claims that his mother was denied health care because of a pre-existing condition, she was denied disability insurance. That lie was finally uncovered in 2011 yet not once was it reported by the networks throughout the entire 2012 presidential race.

What if Marco Rubio lied this way?

Obama wrote about his first job after Columbia, at Business International. "I had my own office, my own secretary, money in the bank... I would catch my reflection in the elevator doors -- see myself in a suit and tie, a briefcase in my hand, and for a split second, I would imagine myself as a captain of industry..."

Years after the campaign was over the Washington Post's David Maraniss reported these were untruths.

Obama had no secretary. His office was the size of a cubicle, and he "dressed like a college kid," said his supervisor.

He lied about everything, including the elevator that had no mirror.

What if Trump lied this way?

Obama claimed his step-grandfather died in Indonesia fighting the Dutch in the anti-colonial war. Again, according to Maraniss: "In fact, the man died of a heart attack falling off an ottoman changing the drapes in the living room."

What if Cruz lied this way?

So what. Why vet when there's a president to elect?

So Obama was showered with accolades instead. According to Time magazine's Joe Klein: "’Dreams from My Father’ may be the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician."

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews found it "unique" and "refreshing." "It's almost like Mark Twain. It's so American, it's so textured. It's picturesque."

Years later they're still at it. Matthews’ MSNBC colleague Lawrence O'Donnell recently stated he believes “’Dreams from My Father’ stands today as the finest literary work ever authored by a president of the United States. The book doesn’t contain the whole truth of Barack Obama’s life. Books can’t do that, but it is, by far, the most honest and open book, an artful book, ever written by a president.”

And then there's Hillary Clinton. It was Hillary who explained she turned a $1,000 investment into a $100,000 profit in one year by studying the Wall Street Journal; whose missing Rose Hill legal documents mysteriously re-appeared in her White House bedroom one day; who claimed to be shocked and "befuddled" at the news of her husband's trysts with White House intern Monica Lewinsky; who lied about coming under sniper fire in Bosnia; who slanders her GOP opponents as "terrorists"; who has repeatedly lied about not having classified files on her private server (so far, 700); whose private emails now conclusively prove she was publicly and most deliberately lying to the American people about a video causing the Benghazi slaughter; who --

None of that matters to the press. What does matter is that anyone in her way be destroyed.

Good Post.

Brent Bozell is a bit of an oddity in the media world. He presents media bias stories without any political bias.
Fortunately with that he has garnered great respect from both sides of the aisle and in the media world.
