"Ben Carson apologizes for plagiarism (swipe)"


          

Dr. Ben Carson apologized Thursday for plagiarizing parts of his book America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great and said he's working with his editors to "rectify the situation."

BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski, one of the reporters who broke the plagiarism news, tweeted Carson's statement on Thursday:

On Wednesday, Carson's publisher Zondervan -- a Christian publisher owned by HarperCollins -- said it would review the allegations of plagiarism in Carson's book. Zondervan released another statement on Thursday, saying, "It has become apparent that further source citation is appropriate in Dr. Carson's America the Beautiful."

BuzzFeed reported Tuesday that passages from Carson's book were taken from a number of sources, including SocialismSucks.Net. See BuzzFeed's report here.

Carson has shown interest in a 2016 presidential run. He released a documentary about himself called "A Breath of Fresh Air: A New Prescription for America" the weekend after the midterm elections.

According to HuffPost Pollster, Carson is among the top of the pack of potential 2016 GOP primary candidates, trailing only 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie:


SMH... I watched his movie a while back and it was impressive. Dude is about to ruin his legacy with this political mess.

I only knew him from his autobiog, upbringing, being from Detroit, scholastic/medical achievements etc

I don't think I was aware of his political views until someone gave him a soapboax to stand on, and boy do I wish they hadn't.

i hope he's 2016s ron paul just to create more of a debate

He may be more knowledgeable, but he may not be smarter.
