Dr. Carson: Media Will Change When They Realize They'll Also Be Destroyed If We Destroy This Nation

"If ever the mainstream media reaches a point where they recognize that if we destroy this nation and destroy the economy, they, too, will be destroyed, I think at that point they will start asking the tough questions and helping to move the population in the right direction."

So predicted Dr. Benjamin Carson on Fox News's Hannity Monday (video follows with transcript and commentary):

DR. BENJAMIN CARSON: It seems like what the President is doing is trying to cut in the places where it hurts the most in order to prove a point. And I, if ever the mainstream media reaches a point where they recognize that if we destroy this nation and destroy the economy, they, too, will be destroyed, I think at that point they will start asking the tough questions and helping to move the population in the right direction.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: Don't hold your breath, Dr. Carson. I declared in my own medical way the media in this country dead. May they Rest in Peace.

Actually, I agree with Dr. Carson.

Consider HBO's Bill Maher saying on his program Friday that his taxes are now so high when you include what he pays in California that liberals could actually lose him.

Clearly, the policies of this President and Democrats in California are finally hitting Maher's wallet and making him think.

If and when others in the media start feeling Maher's kind of pain, now that Obama won't face another election, their priorities will be more about themselves than him if and when the economy turns back down and starts to impact them more than the previous recession did.

Stay tuned.
