There are two (at first blush unrelated) related phenomena I have noted recently–1. The automatic labeling recently of presidential contender Dr. Ben Carson' discussions regarding West Point as "Dr. Carson, caught in big lie", and, 2. The negative conclusions put forth in Bill O'Reilly's ("The O'Reilly Factor") newest book, "Killing Reagan". On the surface these two things may may not seem to be related, but they both appear to involve an author or journalist trying to make a name for himself by using partial information to come to the worst possible conclusion about a person. I'm sure I am guilty of this to some degree as I assess certain public figures–but I hope I admit when I'm wrong, and also always hope that the worst conclusions about a person are not true, and that I will try to keep an open mind as to the possibility of mitigating aspects of the situation; for the possibility that the allegations are flatly false. There is every possibility that Dr. Carson has not lied at all about the West Point issue–and eyewitnesses to the life and work of Ronald Reagan flatly contradict the highly negative allegations/conclusions about President Reagan in Bill O'Reily's newest book. I may be wrong of course, but I will go out on a limb and say that I believe both of these fine men (Reagan and Carson) will be vindicated-- but not before someone has made an name, and some money, for themselves, based on partial or just plain wrong information.
May God have grace for us all,
