What -- follow the money out there are falling is Herman became the victim of a double standard a New York editorial points out that Democrats hate harassment of women especially.
When the claims are against the conservative.
Took me now is Brent Bozell founder of the media resource center Brent yes of the so this has become very big political up but Randy says I -- this a story and -- Sunday evening.
It became -- lead story on all.
The mainstream media.
New shows the very next morning.
Would this have beaten with with the treatment be the same if this were a -- Democrat or liberal.
We -- with these sort of accusations.
A starting to erupt.
Let me ask you this Eric and return.
What -- Herman -- -- wrong.
You know -- No one knows and and that's a very importantly why is there as a variable and -- it I'd love to discuss this with -- in the end we'll get into the the nitty gritty of love what he -- -- we didn't do and how he's handling it in a minute.
But first of all let's let's just talk about the media treatment it was almost like a failure frenzy on the morning talk shows.
On NBC and MSNBC and and the rest of -- Eric that's a point by point -- and it's and it's a media talk fast.
And yet we don't know what he did we don't -- -- did anything wrong nobody has any facts and has been nonstop coverage of this man.
And they asked him how come you didn't talk to political fifteen days ago.
I would've done the exact same thing why give oxygen to a non story.
No wants comport within -- Herman Cain.
And yet -- -- covered day in and day out you compare that to pass scandals involving a liberal Democrat and -- -- laughable proposition.
I've got two words -- you Juanita Broderick.
Here's a woman.
Bill Clinton bubble rating her -- a woman who had credible evidence evidence enough that Tim Russert.
Put it on dateline NBC.
Yet -- -- in the press once -- no one's ever covered this is an historic.
Did -- that didn't rise of the level of credibility.
But this story about Herman Cain with a quarter quote sexual harassment.
God only knows what that means little even -- -- the charges are true or they amount to anything we know nothing.
Yet -- nonstop coverage right and and Brent -- Politico -- -- did to reporters have put the story out.
Did they do did they do enough due diligence did -- do enough reporting to in fact post that story Sunday night.
No no -- either they did enough to have the facts and have the evidence.
Which they haven't put forward and they should have.
Or they don't have the evidence which is -- they put forward -- -- wasn't a story that's not enough it's not have to say.
That permitted to a story about about you and say I have I don't to people who -- -- sexual harassment.
And not give -- a chance to defend yourself and this video you've got to come on the defense -- that.
Brent what do you let me ask you this -- let me as in you run a website and what we if you had when they had.
Against they -- the prominent Democrat you you -- -- the story.
If that's the totality.
Of what they had no.
If they can't provide the name of the accuser if they can't provide let charge if they can't provide any specific ever.
And so this that how is this story.
Listen this -- some of what should they be required to provide who tipped them off.
Well that's another what I apps Eric -- you're you're you're spot on and that's the question these BS they were tipped off.
They were tipped -- by somebody or some organization of some entity that wanted to Harmon -- came.
I think we have a right to know who gave them that story especially.
If we don't have the evidence right now now -- -- You know if you if you look at look at their history at one point date they try to -- middle of the road they try to be bipartisan but certainly over the last couple years or so -- -- and a here and half -- so at least with with the Palin situation with the Bachmann situation and now -- McCain situation.
There there really beating up on the conservatives are they not.
Yeah this kind of mogul who wrote this piece he's been going hit pieces on conservatives hit pieces on on talk radio hit pieces on on -- Sarah Palin.
That that this guy is is just one of these.
Hit arts and -- up here it's what we've been saying for two years.
The media got broad Barack Obama elected in 2000 April 100%.
Pro -- -- Barack Obama coverage is not gonna get reelected.
They've got that they're down where the Republican is what you've seen that -- dramatically you know whether it's a -- -- ask -- to speculate.
I would just just play -- -- -- it's 10 o'clock -- -- -- opinion it's isn't this isn't news reporting our right now.
What do you think.
They had the most to gain by tipping off Politico to -- to to this said whatever this is that in in McCain's past.
I wouldn't venture to give -- that answer because I don't know.
I just wish Politico would abide by those standards I just gave you right now hi Brent -- gonna say -- you very much sir thanks for joining us tonight that they are.
