Rupert Murdoch: Ben Carson is ‘political naif’

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch recently took to Twitter to characterize former Fox News contributor and potential Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, as a “political naif.”

Actually, some likely see Carson’s lack of political experience as a plus.

The key test will be whether or not it leads to certain critical missteps that could hurt him across a broader audience. As Mediaite reported at the time, there is at least some evidence that’s already been the case. While it’s still early enough for anyone to recover from a mistake, or even a misstatement or two, with other Republicans gearing up their efforts for a run at the top spot on the 2016 ticket, the time window for a recovery may be closing soon.

Before he has announced an official run, Carson has managed to make a number of statements just this month that have thrust him into the spotlight — not always in a good way. He told CNN he thinks being gay is a “choice,” warned that Shia and Sunni Muslims might “unite” to “destroy” America and called Obama a “psychopath” in his new GQ profile.
