So the guy is running for president and CNN is investiagting his childhood escapades instead of his campaign policies??????

Wish they were that serious about investigating obama from 2007 until today. But hey, you can keep your doctor, period!
You are aware that your statement is a logical fallacy, right?

Ben Carson shake hands with Brian Williams. Appears his book is mostly a work of fiction. It's a shame. His real life story was impressive. Black kid from Detroit becoming a famous surgeon. Wonder what his poll numbers will be in the future.

I'm starting to wonder about how true his claims are about his poverty stricken childhood...

So Ben Carson is a liar because CNN says so? Seems liberals haven't learned to think for themselves yet.

No, he's a liar because he admits he's a liar. But only after he's been exposed and has no other out.

I'm not sticking up for Carson. Remember, I'm one of those "crazies" voting for Trump. I just think you investigate to dig up dirt not good things. A pattern of Brian Williamsing would be troublesome.

This will finish him off. He is now passing Brian Williams in the 'two lies' lane and speeding into huge lies territory. And it is in print in his book.

The guy is not sincere. He lied during the debates about his dealings with Mannitech. His fabrications reflect a pattern of pathological 'fibbing' (which is putting it nicely). Anyone who has been critical of Williams, but is making excuses and giving a pass to Carson, is being totally disingenuous.

Ben Carson said he saw the names of the people CNN talked to and none of them would know about the stabbing incident or the incident with his mother.
