THE DOCTOR IS IN
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.
