Here's one reason. Unlike other GOP establishment types who are willing to let the media walk all over them, the mild-mannered Carson still takes on the media in a way that not only resonates, it illustrates the media hypocrisy.
Like he did last night, after a smear story by Politico claimed Carson lied about being offered a scholarship from West Point. Carson took the media on and threw it back in their faces, showing them he won't play their game (The Blaze).
“I do not remember this level of scrutiny for one President Barack Obama when he was running,” Carson said. “In fact, I remember just the opposite. I remember people just – oh wait, we won’t talk about that. We won’t talk about that relationship.”
“Why is his records sealed?” he later asked. “Why are you guys not interested in his record are sealed? Why are you not interested in that? Let me ask that. Can someone tell me why please?”
A reporter asked, “Why do you think they are?”
“I’m asking you why it’s sealed. No, no, no! Don’t change it!” he said over the reporter. “I’m asking you will someone, will someone tell me why you have not investigated that? I want to know.”
“Why are you raising it?” a reporter asked.
“Because I want to know. You should want to know too,” Carson answered.
He added, “Hold on one second. You are saying that something that happened with the words ‘a scholarship was offered’ is a big deal, but president of the United States, his academic records being sealed is not? Tell me how there is equivalency there!”And another thing, how come it is safe for liberals and media liberals to attack Carson racially, compared to how just a policy disagreement with Obama is called "racist" or "dog whistle racism." Yet a liberal professor can call Carson a "coon," while others can call him a "token" and a "safe negro."
Which is why liberals want to see him destroyed.
