Herman Cain, the first Republican to declare his candidacy in the 2012 presidential race, made some strong statements Tuesday at The Heritage Foundation's weekly Bloggers Briefing. The most noted statement in the media was a fervent phrase regarding Planned Parenthood. "It's not Planned Parenthood. It's Planned Genocide," Cain said.
Cain's indictment upon the controversial health care provider was illuminated in the media, particularly by a CNN reporter attending the briefing. The comments were not condoned. They were put on the chopping block.
Sidenote: Cain is likely what drew the reporter to the event. I attend the briefing every week and have never seen him before.
The lede in Shannon Travis' Political Ticker post is what first hints at the article's subjectiveness. It says:
Using unusually harsh words, a potential presidential candidate echoed some previous comments: claiming that Planned Parenthood's original mission was to "help kill black babies before they came into the world."
