The media is trying to level the playing field for the GOP primaries. Herman Cain has propelled up in rank leaving many of the GOP contenders behind. The media hate conservatives rising in popularity, especially a black conservative. I would think it would be a nice contrast between two black men with two different philosophies got at it in the general election. I thought giving the American public a good show was the purpose of the media.
View Video- Coulter: Politico's Smear Of Cain Shows Liberal Media "Terrified Of Strong, Conservative, Black Men"
(RealClearPolitics) Ann Coulter responds to a report from the "liberal publication" Politico that Herman Cain sexually harassed two women while he was the president of the National Restaurant Association.
"Liberals are terrified of Herman Cain. He is a strong conservative black man. Look at the way they go after Allen West and Michael Steele and they aren't even running against Obama. They are terrified of strong, conservative, black men," Coulter said.
The most damning part of the report, which is not well sourced, seems to be that Mr. Cain made "physical gestures" that weren't sexual in nature, but made the women uncomfortable:
"There were also descriptions of physical gestures that were not overtly sexual but that made women who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable and that they regarded as improper in a professional relationship."
On Sunday's edition of CNN's "Reliable Sources," one of Politico's top writers Roger Simon accused Rick Perry of being a racist, and said being one is helpful for a candidate in the Republican primary.
