Herman Cain, whose embarrassing 2012 Republican presidential campaign exposed him as a misogynistic filanderer and part of his speeches as based on Pokémon poems, has just been hired by Rupert Murdoch‘s Fox News.
“FOX News Channel (FNC) has hired former Republican presidential candidate, businessman, author and columnist Herman Cain as a contributor, announced Bill Shine, Executive Vice President of Programming,” a Fox new statement reads.
Cain will provide analysis and commentary across FNC’s daytime and primetime programming, as well as on FOX Business Network (FBN).
In making the announcement, Shine said, “Cain’s impressive resume makes him a valuable addition to the FOX News and FOX Business lineup. As a political expert with business savvy, he brings an important voice to the nation’s debates.”
Cain, accused by at least three women of having sexual affairs with him while married, was for a short time the leading GOP contender for the nomination. Cain ultimately “suspended” his campaign amid scandal.
For a media empire that is the brain of the RNC and the GOP, hiring as “journalists” misogynists like Scott Brown and Herman Cain is certainly not a wise move, but then again, we’re talking about the network that’s been proven to actually make people less-smart.
