Former presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson has called on the mainstream media to hold a national summit to discuss how to provide fair coverage.

Carson told Fox News that “the media is the only business that is protected by our constitution. They are supposed to be on the side of the people, they are not supposed to be distorting the information that they give in order to put forth a particular view point or an ideology and that is what they are doing.”

Carson emphasized that the purpose of the summit should be “to come up with some rules. And they need to abide by those rules. And we need to make those rules public, because I think most of them don't even know the rules any more. And that's why they act the way they do.”

He reiterated that he would be happy to work with media, explaining that already, “Every time I see a young journalist anywhere, I talk to them about the role of the media. And I say, maybe you can be the new wave. You can bring some integrity back to honorable profession and it can be done and it must be done. Because it is essential to the well-being of our country.”

Carson, who has been a member of President-elect Donald Trump's transition team, said last week he did not want a cabinet position, because he had not government experience and had never run a federal agency, The Hill reported.
 
The retired neurosurgeon had been touted as a possible secretary of Health and Human Services, so that he could take a leading role in helping to roll back Obamacare in the new administration. He reiterated, however, that he would continue to advise the Trump administration in an unofficial capacity
