Fox News cuts ties with Ben Carson after announcement of self-promotional video

In advance of the release of a self-promotional video, Fox News has cut ties with retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, but it isn’t a bad thing.

The nearly hour long documentary, titled “A Breath of Fresh Air: A New Prescription for America,” is designed to introduce Carson to the American people as a potential 2016 Republican presidential contender.

As for ending their relationship with Carson, who was a Fox News contributor, the decision is standard fare at the network. According to The Washinton Post, Fox News took the same step during the 2012 presidential election, cutting ties with eventual candidates Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.

Here’s a clip of the documentary from YouTube:
