'This Is a Hit Job': Goldberg Defends Ben Carson's Oregon Shooting Comments
Dr. Ben Carson is catching some heat for saying on "Fox and Friends" that he would have attacked the Oregon college shooter, rather than allow himself to be shot.
"I would not just stand there and let him shoot me. I would say, 'Hey, guys, everybody attack him. He may shoot me, but he can’t get us all,'" said Carson.
The comments drew criticism as being insensitive to the victims of last week's attack on Umpqua Community College, which left nine people dead.
On "The O'Reilly Factor," Bernie Goldberg said he doesn't support Carson as a presidential candidate, but the press' attacks on the retired neurosurgeon are way off-base.
"This is a hit job on the doctor," Goldberg said.
He explained that Carson was asked specifically what he would do in that situation, so that's how he responded.
"It didn't even occur to me that he was second-guessing the victims," Golberg said. "But this is what happens, Bill. This is what happens when you're a conservative Republican with good poll numbers. The other side has to bring you down."
