Dr. Ben Carson lambasted the media during an impromptu, heated press conference Friday evening, fervently denying Friday's Politico characterization of Carson's West Point scholarship story, and going on a tirade about how he believes he is being covered unfairly compared to how President Obama was covered in the 2008 election.
"Politico, as you know, told a bald-faced lie," Carson said. "I never said I received a full scholarship. Nowhere did I say that."
A member of the media interjected: "You just told me you got a scholarship offer."
"I never said I got a scholarship," Carson replied, making a distinction between "scholarship" and "scholarship offer."
