Cain Coverage Fair

A new Pew survey finds more people think think coverage of Herman Cain has been fair as opposed to too tough or too easy.  The tables give a nice example of people believing what they want to believe, with Dems more likely to buy into the Cain sexual harassment story and GOPers less likely to do so.

Are journalists and others obsessed with this story?  Sure.  It's easy news.  It's got sex.  It's got a guy high in the polls for a major party nomination.  It's got sex.  And did I mention sex?  I should. 

And here's a telling line from the report:  "Among those critical of the press coverage, more say it has been too tough (24%) than too easy (14%) on Cain.”
