The headline has also been changed to reflect this.


    So in the end WND runs Cain's syndicated columns.
    HAHA...how DISGUSTING! Those White Trash racist bigots that are just low class white people that are obviously ignorant redneck hicks are being pandered to by Cain whose obviously putting out syndicated columns specifically to be picked up by hillbilly backwoods white folks at WND to secretly hide the code that the birthers are right!

    DISGSUSTING

    UTTERLY DISGUSTING

    Out of curiosity, what are the "rules" of journalistic sharing? Does Cain get to say, "No, not that outlet" or does he lose that authority when his main publisher is given distribution rights? Or is there some other format?

    And regardless, if you're campaigning to be the future President wouldn't you want to reach out to as many voters as possible? I'm sure that not every person who finds an article they enjoy on WND is a hack. Maybe he's looking for the normal, intelligent voter who searches for information? Or maybe he's looking for hacks. Without reading the 113 articles I couldn't tell you.

    But from what I've seen of Cain, he appears to be pretty logically. He's been amazingly successful and I think we need a hard worker with a history of success working with us to move the country forward. I don't think he's necessarily my first choice, but him having articles on WND doesn't play into that.

    It implies 3 things that are not true, to lead readers to falsely believe that Herman Cain is a birther that either caters to, appeals mostly to, and/or is part of, the fringe kooks on the far right and is associated with the websites they frequent.

    1. They imply that WND is a website dedicated to, or is centered around, the "birther" issue... That is false. They are a conservative news outlet that centers on general political issues. As Wikipedia states, they are "an American web site that publishes news and associated content from a U.S. conservative perspective".

    2. They imply that Cain is a staff writer or contributer that writes articles specifically for WND, and that he has some kind of personal affiliation with them. That is false. North Star Writers Group syndicates Cain's columns nationwide to many different websites and media outlets, including WND.

    3. Finally, even though the piece says that none of the 113 articles from Cain that appeared at WND were on the subject of Obama's place of birth, the headline of the original article on Yahoo read "Herman Cain has written 113 columns for leading birther website" implies that Herman Cain is himself a birther, which is also false.

    I don't know about you, but that qualifies as "phony" to me.

    How many of Cain's columns stated that Obama wasn't born in the United States?

    So you're speaking about literal white colored trash...like pieces of blank printer paper and white bed sheets...rather than "white people"?

    If so, then sure...its not a racial slur.

    If not...then yes, yes it is. It is on the same level as some of the big ones like the n-word? No. But its still a racial slur.

    so you're a wnd fan?
    Nope, I think the site is mostly garbage. Much like Media Matters. Much like a lot of what goes on at the Huffington Post and almost all of what goes on at the DailyKOS. Doesn't change the fact that insulting it as "white trash", which suggests that is what its readership consists of is rather derogatory. It'd be little difference than calling Perez Hitlon a "fag website" or suggesting that the DailyKOS is a "dirty ghetto website" because it supports affirmative action. Or suggesting Al-Jazeera is a "Towel head website".

    perhaps i should have said just plain trash. my apologies.
    Why apologize when you don't mean it, you're true views and beliefs were made purely evident already.
