GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain addressed the accusations of sexual harassment against him in a press conference from Phoenix this evening. Although yesterday’s presser with Cain accuser Sharon Bialek and her attorney Gloria Allred was only covered by CNN, today all three cable networks went to Cain live shortly after 5 pmET.
Fox News Channel had a special report anchored by Bret Baier from Washington. “The Five” resumed at the conclusion of the press conference. CNN and MSNBC stayed with their regular 5pmET anchors — Wolf Blitzer and Chris Matthews, respectively.
