THE DOC­TOR IS IN

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Fox News con­tin­ues to up the ante. Yes, they’ve over­hauled their prime-time sched­ul­ing and cre­ated a pair of new pro­grams. Now comes the ad­di­tion of colum­nist, au­thor and hu­man­i­tar­ian Dr. Ben Car­son as a con­trib­u­tor.

“Dr. Car­son is a bril­liant neu­ro­sur­geon who has ded­i­cated his life to heal­ing oth­ers. He also has a broad per­spec­tive on what’s go­ing on in the coun­try and his wis­dom and provoca­tive view­points will make a ma­jor con­tri­bu­tion to our net­work,” says Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.

The physi­cian’s frank and com­mon-sense ob­ser­va­tions about pol­i­tics and Oba­macare have won him many fans; nu­mer­ous “Ben Car­son for Pres­i­dent” in­ter­est groups and web­sites have sprung up in the past 10 months.

John Philip Sousa IV, the great-grand­son of the fa­mous com­poser, launched the su­per PAC “Na­tional Draft Ben Car­son for Pres­i­dent Com­mit­tee” in Au­gust, and it is now reg­is­tered with the Fed­eral Elec­tion Com­mis­sion, com­plete with web­site Run­Ben­Run.org.
