    The champagne corks must have been popping at Politico sometime just after 2 p.m. today, as Sharon Bialek presented her charges against Herman Cain. After a week of obsessive reporting (at least 91 stories about Cain's alleged sexual harassment of employees at the National Restaurant Association),...

    As noted in my post last night, Politico wrote 91 news stories in a one week period regarding "sexual harassment" charges against Herman Cain, without a single story stating what conduct Cain actually engaged in or was alleged to have engaged in. Howard Kurtz (via Althouse via...

    Just the stats: Days as of 8 p.m. Eastern today since Politico broke the story - 7 Politico news stories about or mentioning "Herman Cain": 138 Politico news stories about or mentioning "sexual harassment": 91 Politico news stories about or mentioning "sexual harassment" not involving Herman Cain: 0 Politico news stories...

    That Memeorandum algorithm is smart, really smart.  It not only finds the blog posts and stories which drive the debate, it also pulls a snippet of text from the post so readers get a sense of what's really important in the story. And in the case...

    That's the word I'm hearing.  Even though the National Restaurant Association was willing to waive the confidentiality agreement. Updates:  CNN reports: Joel Bennett, the attorney for one the women who has accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment, said Friday that his client "made a complaint in good...

    That's the question David Mark at Politico's Arena forum asks, with this explanation: Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain’s shifting responses to allegations of sexual harassment dating to his time as president of the National Restaurant Association have left his campaign reeling. Has Cain’s campaign done itself politically...

    I'm finally back after a full day of travel, where I had to rely on CNN and MSNBC on the plane for coverage of the Politico story about Herman Cain. I can't really sort through all the details yet, too much has happened in the last...

    Because I'm traveling all day, I'm not going to be able to cover the Politico's not very specific yet sensational claims about two settlements in the 1990s involving women who worked at the National Restaurant Association when Herman Cain ran the organization.  It's not clear...

    The homepage of Politico this morning resembled the now-infamous Esquire ode de love to Barack Obama. Obama as heir to the Martin Luther King, Jr. legacy, marching arm-in-arm with those who walked arm-in-arm with Dr. King: Except that the story was not quite at the cover indicated,...

    So what else is new.  Obama's campaign plans to destroy Mitt Romney, according to Politico, by playing class warfare and portraying Romney as phony and not genuine: Barack  Obama’s aides and advisers are preparing to center the president’s  re-election campaign on a ferocious personal assault on...
