Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson is under fire for comments he made this week during a meeting with local staff in California. The media once again pulled something out of context and omitted facts to create a damaging story.
Carson was accused of making transphobic remarks about “big hairy men” trying to get into women’s shelters.
Of course, none of the media stories mentioned that those concerns were raised by women’s health groups, not specifically by Carson.
To the media, the concerns of workers and users of women’s shelters aren’t valid – at least not when there’s an opportunity to smear Trump or his cabinet members.
Instead of shining a light on the real problem, the media attempted to defame a hardworking person who truly cares.
Ben Carson has an amazing record of helping solve issues and improving lives for thousands. The media should be concerned about reporting stories in context instead of spreading fake news.
