Fox Contributor Debunks Claim That Ben Carson's Background Is Being Unfairly Criticized By Media
From the November 9 edition of Fox News' The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson:
GRETCHEN CARLSON (HOST): Then it brings you back to, do they do this for all the candidates in the same way? Listen to Reince Priebus this morning.
REINCE PRIEBUS: This is a totally crazy obsession over incredible detail from 30 and 40 years ago. We kind of wish the media would be just as obsessed or half-obsessed with Hillary Clinton's lies. The difference is that the media is actually -- they do have an actual vendetta or at least an agenda against some of these candidates.
CARLSON: All right, so Eboni, what do you think about that? Is it fair?
EBONI WILLIAMS: Yeah, I heard that full interview, Gretchen. I don't think it's fair. I think what Priebus is saying there falls empty. Because we have to go all the way back to the vetting of Barack Obama, an unknown who had not a lot of political record to run on. He also, like Dr. Carson, relied heavily on personal narrative. And before he was America's media darling, which I acknowledge he became, I mean they were tearing this man apart about his association with Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers and what have you. So I do think this is consistent in the media in the beginning.
