Herman Cain atty Lin Wood: Media is "participating in the deterioration of the political process"
CNN ^ | 120111 | Piers Morgan

Posted on 12/01/2011 9:39:29 PM PST by Fred

Herman Cain attorney Lin Wood is a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" this evening, in an exclusive interview in the wake of the latest accusation aimed at his client. "What I find naive is the failure on the part of members of the media to be asking the tough questions of the accuser, someone who has, obviously a troubled past," Wood tells Piers Morgan. "Why don't you look at yourself, Piers, and the members of your media?"

“Media is “participating in the deterioration of the political process”

#####

Nothing new.

See the Watergate Media Circus, circa 1973

Piers Morgan is an assclown. Need I say more! He thinks he’s smarter than everyone else.

“exactly what I was going to say

####

The Marxist media was able to derail a highly successful war that was an across the board TROUNCING of the Reds, and then conduct a coup against a sitting President (who, not coincidentally, had previously been a markedly effective Commie hunter in the HUAC hearings), all within the space of 5 years.

Is it any wonder that, to this day, they feel themselves invincible?

That is all changing. Quickly and fundamentally.

I am going to again thank God tonight in my prayers for the emergence of the Internet and disseminated media in general.

Lin Wood quotes:

‘Five lies do not make one truth’

‘The media refuses two move to the issues and want to focus on the salacious’

‘You just made a question that does not have one fact’

‘Cannot judge character based on accusations’

‘There is not one fact to support that Herman Cain was continuously texting Ginger White’

texting over a four week period

total texts 70
White 57
Cain 17 responses

Ginger White has not presented any proof of her allegations.

Told Piers to have Ginger White answer his questions and prove them.

He’s got a good point. Correct me if any of these are wrong, but here’s the summation of the women accusing Cain of things:

#1. Won’t give her name or what he did.

#2. Won’t give her name or what he did.

#3. Says he didn’t do anything to her, but he said something sort of about another woman that she kind-of, sort-of construed as maybe somewhat inappropriate...or anyway it gave her a bad feeling.

#4. Gave her name but won’t say what he did. BTW, did I mention she works for the Obama admin at the Treasury dept?

#5. Sharon Bialek. False claims of sexual harrassment and basically a lifelong grifter, among other things.

#6. Ginger White. Not much different than Bialek in her history. Says the affair happened over 13 years, yet her only supporting evidence are very recent phone records with no detail of who called who are how much was paid or how often, or whether there was quid pro quo, which there seems to not be.

If I missed one or got a timeline wrong let me know. There was one promised but she never came forward. That’s all I’m aware of.

Everyone of these accusers screams an accusation and then give no details or even their name on a couple. The two that did both look like professional con artists and blackmailers.

Cain’s biggest failing here has been his shoot-from-the-hip responses and attitude and hiring piss poor campaign people. That and not telling his wife on the last one. Definitely worth a ‘WTF?’ but the litany of accusers have all fallen flat so far.

Love it when Morgan says, “if a candidate is having an affair while running for president, its relevant” — and then recall that it took the National Enquirer to break the Edwards story and the blue dress story, while in each case the mainstream media tried as hard as it could to look the other way.

So in one case, leading the charge against the candidate, in the other leading the coverup.

Oh, and add Jennifer Flowers too — her case is directly parallel — the mainstream press participated in burying that story by ignoring it.

Here’s a snippet from a website that has done some actual research:

http://mychal-massie.com/premium/more-evidence-that-demands-an-answer/

“Now, to begin my conspiracy theory…

I still find something very very fishy that all the “accusers revolve around the NRA. This man has been in business over 40 years.

Department of the Navy? - No Accusers.

Coca-Cola? - No Accusers.

Burger King? No Accusers.

Pillsbury? - No Accusers.

Godfather’s Pizza? - No Accusers.

Kansas City Fed? - No Accusers?

Americans for Prosperity? - No Accusers.

Radio Talk Show Host? - No Accusers.”

Lin Wood said that there are only two that have come forward with some type of harassment accusation.

1. Kraushar - NRA - would not release her information
2. Bialek - Wood said total unbelievable with no proof.
These are the only two that Wood referred to.

Now for the BS ones that are the media’s fantasy
3. Worked at NRA - will not come forward - may have been a settlement, we have no idea because the media cannot be trusted F’in liars.

These 3 fall under some type of harrassment 2 work related 1 major BS


4. This one is so stupid - the dinner thing were Cain did not pay for the $800 wine.

This one is a WTF stupid attempt at the press making a story


5. Ginger White - Completely different from the others an accusation of a ‘casual affair’ for 13-14 years off again and on again and the text messages.

Hows about the new floozie and the 13 year affair, Fred? Although, maybe 'floozie' ain't the right name ...

Ginger White falls under #5 in my list - she would fall under the allegation of consensual whatever and false accusations

Yep, I forgot about the one at the dinner who got drunk, Cain bought the wine, and supposedly ended up at his apartment - according to another person at least. She never came forward.

I assume that was another person, or was that one of those already on my list? Dropped off the radar so fast I couldn’t keep track.

No wrongo, your list is way wrong. That at the apartment crap is BS. Our list are different.

We basically match up, my #3 was thrown in just to show the ludicrousness of it all. Yours is more specific and better detailed than mine. Two had no names (one wouldn’t give it, the other was from a 3rd party source i.e the one who stayed at his apartment), then Kraushear, Bialek and White.

At any rate, all are bumpkis for providing real proof so far.

Lin has a good point, but this “wife didn’t know” is a killer. I don’t see how Cain finds the exit this time.

#1 is #4 - Kraushaar. This is the only complaint the NRA has supported - and was investigated and found without merit. Kraushaar went

#2, if there was one, never came forward, this was third party account. Politico never was able to reach her by phone.

#3 was Chris Wilson’s story, but was debunked by someone else at the same restauarant - this could also be the same person as #2.

#3 is Bialek.

#4 is White.

The media has been promoting ruinous socialism and race division for decades.

It is almost like they said this, lying in wait.

"Hmmmmm...now lets seeeee. OK, we hit that Clarence Thomas pretty good with Anita Hill. But he survived and STILL got on the Supreme Court. THAT means, on this Herman Cain individual, we are going to have to double and triple down on him. First of all, this time, we need an accuser who is WHITE, and secondly, we need MULTIPLE ACCUSERS not just one, and then stretch it out of a period of weeks."(cue spooky, evil music)

I am hep to their game, as you and many other good people on FR here are--seeing the big picture past one's own candidate in this race and who the true enemy is and what he is up to. They think they can eat into Cain's support numbers by Driving a Democrat Dagger into the heart of much of his base support and potential base support--that is the negative narrative and messaging. African-American women. White women. Evangelicals. Southern conservatives. They knew JUST HOW TO GIN THIS ONE UP.

However, I still think these evil people out to get Herman Cain cannot win and there necessarily must, as we speak, be crateloads of heavy-duty prayer going up against them to the effect that they will be confused, confounded and vanquished eventually for their dishonesty, meanness and sin.

Well, that’s really the whole idea, after all.

When the sheeple are too stupid and misinformed to cast intelligent votes, they simply allow themselves to be herded by the media into voting as directed.

Welcome to the United Soviet States of America..where the Pravda State Media “vet” the candidates to the pleasure and needs of the RinoCrat UniParty.

This “election” will be a non-election...featuring the state approved “candidates”-whose only distinction is whether they are black or white.

Well I don’t feel like I’m the only one who doesn’t know exactly whose on first. The media slander mill has been hard to untangle.
