Herman Cain - burning out?
He should not be President, to be sure. He has some of the goofiest and most dangerous economic ideas I've ever heard. If he were to become President and were to put some of these goofy ideas into practice, it would be very harmful to the country. But goofy ideas don't sell newspapers. Sex scandals sell newspapers. Hence, the space given to a possible sex scandal, compared to the space given to a critique of his 9-9-9 tax plan, illustrates the economics of publishing and selling newspapers.
