The New York Times notices Herman Cain

Yesterday, I was quite surprised when I read the very fair and kind of glowing article about Herman Cain inTthe New York Times. Here is a sample:
Those not frequenting Tea Party rallies or the living rooms and coffee shops of New Hampshire and Iowa might dismiss Mr. Cain, a talk radio host and former chief executive of Godfather’s Pizza, as a frivolous candidate — “the pizza guy” as some call him.
But there are signs of what Mr. Cain, in his booming baritone, calls “Old Man Mo — Momentum!”
A Gallup poll released last week showed Mr. Cain with the highest voter intensity score of any Republican presidential contender — far higher than Ms. Palin, a former governor of Alaska, or Mr. Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts. While Mr. Cain’s name recognition was at 37 percent, it had risen 16 points since March.
Many pundits and voters declared him the winner of the first Republican debate last month. And he won the straw polls at the Tea Party Patriots convention in February and the Conservative Values Conference in Iowa in March.
The article goes on like this for two pages. Such a fair and balanced article in the New York Times about a black conservative has me wondering, what is the MSM up to?

Under the old MSM structure the New York Times serves as the sounding board from which the other liberal media takes their cues. This is why it hard to me to believe that the Times would do an honest piece on Herman Cain without having an ulterior motive.

Whatever the reason, it is good to see Herman Cain get positive press that will help him gain more name recognition.

In case you missed it, Herman Cain was on This Week, check out the clip below.

It bothers me too, that this News paper would do such a 'glowing' report on Mr. Cain. Usually when the MSM does this they have a little more in store for later. If that is their purpose, knowing what I know about Mr. Cain, then it will backfire and blow-up in their face.
Go Mr. Cain or as we say here in the swamps of Louisiana, Geaux Herman Geaux!!!
