     A new book by former Godfathers Pizza Inc. Chairman Herman Cain aimed to instill a dose of the real world into the Washington status quo. Cain, national chairman of theBusiness & Media Institute, targeted the marginalized voter with the book They Think Youre Stupid.

     The book focused on public policy problems and pointed out areas where Cain believed voters are unified. Cain emphasized the problem that the public is relying on poor information to make too many decisions in their lives. During the 2004 presidential election, Senator John Kerry and Democratic candidates repeatedly called the U.S. economy failed or lousy because of President Bushs economic policies, he explained. They were repeatedly wrong!

     The book cited research performed by the Media Research Centers Business & Media Institute to highlight biased network reporting saying the One Economy, Two Spins report showed that news stories about the 1996 economy under President Clinton were positive 85 percent of the time. News stories about the 2004 economy under President Bush were positive only 13 percent of the time.

     Cain, who has worked in the private sector and ran in the 2004 Republican primary for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, recently became host of the nationally syndicated talk radio show, Herman Cain with the Bottom Line. He also launched two new operations, a public policy organization called the New Voters Alliance and the New Voice Foundation, which focuses on economic issues. He has also served as CEO and President of the National Restaurant Association and as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

     They Think Youre Stupid has received endorsements from publisher Steve Forbes, former congressman Jack Kemp who is now co-director of Empower America, former Georgia Sen. Zell Miller and L. Brent Bozell III, the director of the Media Research Center, the parent organization for the Business & Media Institute.
