Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Dale Russell an investigative reporter at WAGA, the Fox station in Atlanta interviewed businesswoman Ginger White, who told of having a 13-year-long affair with GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain. The station kept the interview under wraps, but let the story trickle out over Twitter and online. (And just so you know who got the exclusive, they plastered their station logo over White’s picture).
But even before the station could air the full “exclusive” story — which they will during the 6pm newscast — Cain went on CNN’s “Situation Room” with a prebuttal telling Wolf Blitzer it’s simply not true: “I just wanted to give you a heads up and your audience a heads up. Here we go again.”
