Cain and Manipulative Role of Media in Selecting Candidates

Posted on September 29, 2011


There was an excellent piece on Herman Cain on the CNN Political Ticker today and it went down as fast as it went up.  The hook was Cain’s remark that blacks have been brainwashed but at the end of the article, Cain made some astute observations about the roll of the media in this campaign:

Cain also weighed in on the recent chatter surrounding Chris Christie, saying the recent reports the New Jersey governor is reconsidering a run for president were hurting the electorate.

“It’s not insulting as much as it is a disservice to the American people,” Cain said. “Chris Christie has been saying for a long time he’s not interested in running. The media is trying to create a story by sucking Chris Christie into race, just like they made a story by sucking Rick Perry into the race.”

Cain said the media should focus on the candidates who have already declared their candidacy to give voters a better idea of the field. CNN

 

Cain’s plain prose and consummate common sense should reach more hearts and ears.
