In the past two weeks the American people have been subjected to nearly 120 stories about the sex life of Presidential contender Herman Cain. Yet at the same time:

1.) Only 3 major networks covered Obama’s sending U.S. troops in Uganda.

2.) Only 1 major news network covered the scandal of the Obama Administration sending guns to Mexican gun cartels.

3.) No major network covered the 8th largest bankruptcy in U.S. history of MF Global, whose CEO was top Obama adviser, former Goldman Sachs CEO, and former Democratic Governor of New Jersey John Corzine.

4.) No major network has covered the Solyndra scandal that allowed $500 million in U.S. taxpayer money to be swindled away by buddies of the Obama Administration.

5.) No major network covered anti-drone protests in Yemen.

6.) No major network has covered the assassination of Abdulrahman Al-awlaki, a 16 year old American citizen.

7.) No network covered Ron Paul winning the Illinois Straw Poll.

Thanks so much for pointing out this "un-reporting" of the failures and outright criminal 'doings' of this administration..  where ARE the real journalists in the msm??  None available, I guess.

They have had those stories on CNN and MSNBC on multiple occasions.  I have personally seen them talk about these stories.  Scandals about sex and politicians will always get top billing over anything else.

I heard and/or read all those stories. The "MSM" covered them. Maybe not as detailed as you as an avid Obama hater and RP supporter might have wanted, but they did cover them. How else would a die-hard liberal such as myself know about them?

Face it, sex sells. After Clinton caused a stain on a dress and Monica's "friend" started talking about it, the story was in the news for a lot longer than Cain's alleged harassment currently is. If we use that incident as a standard, be prepared for more of the same until the day Cain drops out of the race. I hate it too, because I'd rather talk about things that matter!
