CNN Ignores The Black Guy...Again
Herman Cain is the only person who has taken the step of forming a Presidential Exploratory Committee and yet CNN leaves him out of their montage of potential GOP candidates. Why? Is their reporting just that shoddy, or do they not want to show a conservative black man?
Herman had me at his support of the Fair Tax, but once again the so called experts in the national media are going about picking and choosing who they want as candidates. By ignoring Mr Cain they gloming onto the more famous pop culture figures, probably because they feel they make better copy and therefore translate into better mileage for the organizations they work for which of course in the end leads to what they hope are increased revenues.
So while they play the woulda, coulda, shoulda game there is only one candidate on the GOP who has announced his serious intentions and is not merely batting his or her eyes at the press and giving them a flirty come hither stare.
One more observation on the collection of photos CNN has. There is not a smile to be seen, except for maybe on the face of the Huckster. All they had was pictures of the people frowning, sneering, or angry looking? Yet another way media can be used to manipulate your views and opinions.
