MSNBC's onslaught of Herman Cain continued Tuesday with Martin Bashir calling the Republican presidential candidate "a dirty old man" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
MARTIN BASHIR: Because Mr. Cain is such a showman, because he preaches the need for a sense of humor, it's easy for us to be seduced by his rapid-fire one liners, his singing of "Imagine there's no pizza," and his smoking chief of staff. It's all good fun. But while Mr. Cain's campaign might be a joke, his conduct, his alleged conduct, is not. In fact, as the accusations pile up, Mr. Cain seems less funny by the day and more like a dirty old man.
As NewsBusters reported Monday, MSNBC has already run more stories about Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain's alleged sexual harassment than it did Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's ties to domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, convicted real estate developer Tony Rezko, and America-hating Rev. Jeremiah Wright combined.
At this pace, this so-called news network might lap its 20 month coverage of Obama's three scandals in only two weeks.
I'm sure the heads of NBC, General Electric, and Comcast must be so proud.
