Veteran Anchor Bill Kurtis Says Bialek Was Former CBS Employee With a ‘Track Record’ . . . .
The Blaze ^ | November 8, 2011 at 10:25pm | Tiffany Gabbay

Posted on 11/09/2011 9:13:11 AM PST by TBP

On his radio program Tuesday, Mark Levin aired a clip of veteran journalist and CBS anchor Bill Kurtis on WLS saying that Herman Cain’s accuser, Sharon Bialek, is a former CBS employee with a “track record.” Given her checkered past, a chuckling Kurtis posited that Bialek‘s and Cain’s roles in the alleged car-incident could even have been reversed.

Some of Kurtis’ observations on Bialek were as follows:

“She has a history.” “There is a lot more to this story.” “I can assure you that there will be far more to this story.” “Let’s put Herman or Sharon in the car and say their roles may even have been reversed, given her track record here.”

Bialek worked for CBS radio station WCKG from 2006-2007.

This whole thing is going to backfire, Cain may gain 5 or more points in the polls before this is over and this idiot women are sent home sobbing.

You don’t understand. The only important thing is The Seriousness of the Charge.

"This is significant coming from a member of the Liberal Establishment media."

Watching the usuall talking head shows I have been shocked to see that the liberal commentators have been more willing to give Cain a fair shake and the benifit of the doubt than the conservatives. Same with much of the blogosphere. If you go to Hot Air for example, many of the "conservative" posters were immediately willing to take the word of the accusers and have been blistering in their denunciation of Cain. It's been a very eye-opening experience.

I heard Kurtis and he did not sound a bit hostile to Mr. Cain. I believe he is of the generation that placed value on personal integrity.

In other news...

WLS-AM just reported a few minutes ago that Sharon Bialek is in the process of filing bankruptcy for a THIRD time in Lake County IL. Nothing further yet.

Kurtis insinuated, two days ago, that revelations about Bialek’s time at CBS were forthcoming. So far, no facts, no corroboration, nothing.

It’s bigger than that. This is establishing in the public mind the fact that Sexual Harassment Law at this stage is nothing more than a tool for morally loose and mentally unstable women to use to extort promotions and money.

Gonna make it hard for Gloria Allred to find jurors for her future cases.

I read that the same might be true of her unemployed boyfriend.

Hmmmmm.....

Can you link to a pod cast or audio of Kurtis saying this? Thank you!

It’s not only the Democrats who want Mr. Cain out of the race. He has run an unconventional campaign and a lot of the “good old boy” campaign support network wants him gone as well. Rove has been particularly prominent in his disdain for all things Cain. The entitled “good old boy” campaign support group has as much to lose with a successful Cain campaign as any candidate.

I was wondering about that. She filed in 1991, 2001 and here it is 10 years later. Seems like she’s due.

What a great way to scam the system.

Well, not really ethical, though completely legal, as is porn, but that don’t make it right.

I think I head Beck saying on his show this morning that he will try to get a hold of Kurtis for an interview.

I’ve noticed that there are conservatives who think they bolster their own credibility by being quick to condemn any conservative candidate who makes a mistake, or comes under attack by the liberal media. This being a primary, there are also lots of supporters of other candidates who think they are helping their guy by piling onto Cain. They are making a huge mistake.

“Let’s put Herman or Sharon in the car and say their roles may even have been reversed, given her track record here.”

One must keep in mind that even if this were the case, it contradicts Cain saying that he doesn't even know who this woman is. Somebody is not telling the truth, and I hope for Cain's sake that it is this woman. We've got one woman giving details of a one on one meeting with Cain in a lobby/car, and one man saying he has no clue who this woman is.

Did you catch this?

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/accuser_went_up_hugged_him_H9zkfHv14dRcUFchh4NRnM

Jacobson’s comments came as a 64-year-old Queens woman, Anna Alexander, told The Post that she got to know Bialek in the 1990s — and that she was “a social climber’’ out for “the money.”

Alexander said she met the Chicago woman while Bialek was visiting her then-Manhattan beau at the Upper East Side restaurant where Alexander worked.

Then, “I got a phone call [from Bialek] one day. I thought she was calling to wish me happy birthday,’’ Alexander said.

“She was sobbing and crying that she was going to lose her apartment. She said, ‘Please help me out.’ ”

Alexander said she gave Bialek around $2,000 — and never got it back.

“She said, ‘I will give it to you when I have it. In the meantime, go on welfare,’ ” Alexander said.

“I don’t believe her [Cain story], not because I’m trying to get even or anything,’’ insisted Alexander, who runs an employment agency in Manhattan. “I’ve been to dinner with her and with men, and I know how she acts.”

Yep, that's the case over at "Hot Air". It's sort of like feeding your allies to the alligator in the hopes he won't get to you until last.

It’s also rather interesting because Mr. Kurtis wasn’t at WBBM when she was employed there. He only recently returned to CBS after many years as a documentary producer/host for various cable networks, including A&E. Whatever Bill Kurtis knows about this, he apparently heard through the Chicago media grapevine, or in the halls of CBS. In any event, this bimbo made quite an impression during her brief run at one of the network’s FM stations in the Windy City.

I’m also surprised that no one has bothered to contact former talk show host Steve Dahl. I believe he was at the station when Bialek worked there; he’s currently collecting the remainder of his CBS contract (and sitting out a non-compete clause) after getting the axe at the station. I’m guessing that Steve might have even more insights about this woman and her reputation at CBS/Chicago.

Simple....Allred will say her client suffers from mental problems caused by Cain’s attack and therefore has not be able to hold a job. I’ll bet there’s a civil suit in the future.

Cain may have to say she offered and he turned her down. That he was trying to help her preserve some dignity.

But truthfully, if she was fired for falsely accusing someone and then Cain met her at a restaurant, or even accepted her phone calls, he’s got problems. I hope that’s not the case and he’ll get my vote no matter what.

This early scandal stuff is a POTUS-run vaccine: Cain gets a little sick, but does not die.

I’ll vote 4 him for SURE.

The libs were murmuring for me to vote for him, but now they’re shrieking that right into my ear.
