Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain
“In only eight and a half days, NBC,
CBS and ABC have devoted a staggering 99 stories to sexual harassment
charges against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain. In comparison,
eight days into Bill Clinton's scandal's with Paula Jones, Kathleen
Willey and Juanita Broaddrick, there were a combined eight reports.
the three network newscasts on Monday offered scant information about
the fact that Cain's accuser, Sharon Bialek, has hired the extremely
liberal lawyer Gloria Allred. On NBC's Nightly News, reporter Kelly
O'Donnell described Allred as a "high profile attorney." On CBS's
Evening News, Jan Crawford referred to her as a "celebrity lawyer."
ABC's World News, Brian Ross avoided discussing Allred and focused on
Bialek: "It's been 14 years since the alleged incident with Cain, but
Sharon Bialek seemed to have perfect recall of the details today at a
New York news conference."
tone had changed on Tuesday. He clarified, "Overnight, the Cain
campaign described Sharon Bialek as a person with a history of severe
financial difficulties and questioned who was paying for her lawyer,
Gloria Allred, who they said was a long-time contributor to Democratic Party causes."
on Monday also defined the new accusations rather flippantly, calling
the charges a "blond bombshell." (Bialek has blond hair.)
Monday's Nightly News, O'Donnell, who didn't identify Allred's
ideology, did explain to viewers: "Allred made a point to say that
Bialek is a Republican and that she has not sold her story. Bialek
acknowledges she has had some financial and legal problems in the past."
Monday evening to Tuesday morning there were 15 new stories. One report
each on Monday night's evening newscasts and one on ABC's Nightline.
Tuesday's Good Morning America had three. There were four on the Today
show and another four on the Early Show.”
Hmmmm....99 - 8. That’s about par for the course.
