Cain Sexual Harassment Scandal Embarrassing - For Media

PPPS (Denver) It is normally our policy not to comment on or criticise other media organizations. However, there are instances that are so outrageous, and behavior that is so unprofessional, as to be embarrassing even to the journalism profession.

We are of course speaking of the recent (and possibly racist) hit piece about Herman Cain which appeared at Politico. It is quite apparent that the accusations of sexual harassment against Mr. Cain were not of a serious nature and should not have been published as such. Instead, it is apparent that the true intent was to inflate a story that would garner headlines and derail the Cain candidacy.


Many other news organizations have been complicit in granting the story legitimacy and enthusiastically repeating and embellishing it as though it were a serious concern and a crisis for the campaign.


To what level have our brethren in the news business sunk? Have things become so bad that news organizations would actively try and influence an election? It makes you wonder.

We at the Pundit Pete Press Service, emphatically denounce this type of journalism. We stand for fair and balanced journalism.

We proudly stand with Herman Cain in this matter.

If you would like to express your outrage about the Politico hit piece, you might want to consider donating to the Cain campaign.

Good questions for Politico.
