CBS Broadcasts 'Sexual Assault' Claims Against Herman Cain
http://newsbusters.org/blogs/matthew-balan/2011/11/02/cbs-broadcasts-sexual-assault-claims-against-herman-cain ^

On Wednesday's Early Show, CBS's Betty Nguyen incorrectly reported that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain had been accused of "sexual assault" by two women. Nguyen later accurately reported that the women actually leveled sexual harassment allegations against Cain.

The fill-in news anchor used the erroneous term during a 14-second news brief 37 minutes into the 7 am Eastern hour: "One of two women who accuse Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual assault wants to speak out. The woman's lawyer say she wants to be released from a confidentiality agreement, so that she can publically respond to Cain's recent claims regarding the case."

Here we go. They are moving it up a notch,,,from harassment to assault. Yeah, she later corrected it,,,but the word "assault" is what will stick in peoples minds, so what she did was probably planned. Wouldn't surprise me if tommorrow a reporter says Cain has been accused of rape at knife point in a dark alley.

The Left and RINOS and whoever else do this every time. Of course, they would have never punished Bill Clinton the rapist.

A mere “slip of the tongue.” ABC would never be so low as to intentionally use inflammatory, dishonest language in portraying a Republican candidate. /major roll eyes.

Sue the network and seal the agreement. Then leak it out that CBS sexually harassed Cain.

So, will Ms. Nguyen be shown the door for her “error”?

Yeah, that’s what I thought.

I just hate the “three blind mice”, CNN and whatever they call the stealth CNN channel.

They brought us the POS who resides at 1600 Penn. Ave.

I hope they all go out of business and their talking heads have to beg for a living in the street.

Thheir hero, Bill Clinton rapes and assaults women..and then as President takes abject sexual advantage of a young intern in the Oval Office...buit that is all winked at. And anyone trying to convict him of those crimes is villafied and attacked themselves.

Now they are trumping up false allegations against this decent man, Herman Cain.

They think we the people are stupid and can be plauyed for fools. but they are going to find it is not so as Cain's support continues to grow. 2012 is coming and these leaches on society are going to be run out of office.

Big Brother's Propaganda Machine is accelerating into overdrive in its determination to destroy Herman Cain!

They will stop at NOTHING to stop this decent, brilliant man who embodies the American Dream and America's best hope!

Its threat is dangerous. This cannot be overstated.

Cain has prevailed over poverty, racial discrimination, cancer, and corporate America, but the Propaganda Machine is as ruthless, relentless, determined, and evil as all of them combined.

Will he prevail over it? If not, America is hopelessly decadent, is doomed, and will fall.

If so, there could be a renaissance of ascendancy in America.

It all depends on the American people.

Consider this an important lesson for 2012, folks, and the power today’s media REALLY holds, despite the belief of some in the “New Media”.

ONLY THE MEME MATTERS, not the truth.

You are witnessing the meme being established in real-time. Cain is being Palin’d...

An ABC Radio News reporter said the same thing earlier today, before quickly "correcting" himself. This is planned.

BTW...please note the similar treatment Cain is receiving now to what Palin was subject to the last 2 years...and the common thread behind both becomes clear.

We the People are only to “be allowed” certain candidates....

It's the David Letterman phenomenon. As we last left CBS it had been discovered that Dave had an upstairs bedroom at the studio where his show was produced. He regularly entertained his ever constant companion "Li'l Willie" with a hot and cold supply of nubile young females seeking to get ahead in the world.

Frankly, there's no one left in CBS who'd know the difference between coercive rape, statutory rape, rape rape, and violent rape. Probably why they misidentified being "uncomfortable" with sex.

For all we know that lady simply developed gastrointestinal problems whenever she was near Herman.

No, it's not planned ~ these people are simply STUPID THUGS.

Herman may or may not become our next President but he can FO SHO get really, really, really rich suing the batardes for these particular stories.

1) “A third woman who used to work for the trade group told the Associated Press that she considered filing a complaint against Cain,”


They will be crawling out of the woodwork for their 5 minutes of fame, now.

Almost 24 hrs ago, I heard ABC Radio (Vic Ranter, I think) do the same thing on a newsbreak: swapping "sexual harassment" with "sexual assault."

I mentioned it on a thread yesterday.
