"I got it," says Politico. "Let's just make some stuff up, be hazy on the details, protect the alleged victims' identity and we'll capture the nation's attention."
What a crock.
Didn't we see this kind of BS back in '93 over the Clarence Thomas hearings at the onset of Slick Willie's presidency (y'all remember Clinton--our first black president)?
According to the non-reaction of the NAACP and SCLC and other pro-radical/liberal/militant black taxpayer funded associations, Cain must be guilty. After all, those groups are pretty quiet right now.
Maybe it was over the price of cigars they had to buy the new daddy?
But the "Rev" Jackson has some sexual harassment problems of his own right now. What--you hadn't heard that from the big media? Check it out.
So people are starting to really dig Herman Cain, his message is resonating, his popularity soaring, other candidates are attacking him and mimicking his proposals and the mainstream media just can't have that.
So, a plant piece.
Only, nobody's buying it.
I suspect if Al Gore had got off his ass sooner in '93 and given us the internet a little quicker, the same thing would've been said about Justice Clarence Thomas. Oh, except even back then nobody was really buying it, especially when it was proven what a notorious liar and goldbrick Anita Hill was--and is.
So how does this all make the mainstream media irrelevant?
Simple. I've been waiting on a "story" like this to appear. I figure it would have no facts, only speculation. No basis, other than political envy, and that the so-called "research" for such a story could've been funded just as easily from Mitt Romney's "killing machine" as it could have been from the DNC.
It would come from some two-bit no-name reporter who will peddle the story upwards until someone's attention was garnered, then the story would be pitched.
Real news doesn't have to be pitched, and right now, the mainstream media is having to pitch the vast majority of their stories.
Like I said, irrelevant.
