Herman Cain talks to John King about controversial remarks he made about a border fence between the U.S. and Mexico.d
Herman Cain is a joke, and only a "frontrunner" because CNN and the rest of the mass media try to pimp him as one. On a day when Ron Paul releases by far the most comprehensive plan of any candidate, he's no mentioned ONCE on your show, with no media coverage. CNN, you aren't fit to give any one the news, as you only push the scripted news given to you to deliver. You lack any courage of a real news agency; and John King, I'm extremely disappinted in you for abandoning your usually good, honest and moral values when it comes to news. CNN has gone in the dumps! Another prime example of CNN blacking out Ron Paul as a means to portray him as an unelectable candidate.
Regarding the impact on the poor of the sales tax component of Herman Cain's 9 9 9 plan, you failed to convey to your listeners that their discrestionary income increases (on average) by approximately 6.5%. This in effect give them more money to purchase food then what they have now. Tell the whole story, Mr. King. That' is your obligation as an objective third party.
Follow up: Discrestionary income increases (by approximately 6.5%) because of a proposed lower rate on the poor's income tax – 9%. Or, 9, 9, 9.
