Republican presidential nomination hopeful Herman Cain has been accused by four women of sexual harassment. He is a new political figure for me and i know most about him through wikipedia. A single accusation can be accounted to foul publicity. Four accusations can be either truth or a systematic defaming of a political figure.
I have always felt that media gets too pro active in accusations. They do not care about the nature of accusation, the accused and the truth behind accusation. It is just a news for them. Of course it is their responsibility to present news. It could invariably tarnish the image of not-proved-guilty accused. I worry about good people falling into this category.
