Good evening and welcome to Rapid Fire, our daily email tip sheet. Here you will find updates to breaking AIM content and a look at what we’re reading. Please keep emailing tips and suggestions or hit us up on Facebook or Twitter.
TOP STORY: Both the White House and conventional media seem hesitant to discuss foreign policy. Cliff Kincaid reports that “While the U.S. media remain preoccupied with unsubstantiated sexual harassment allegations against Herman Cain, America is losing Nicaragua to the communists—again. The blatant stealing of the election in this Central American country has been ignored by headlines in the press proclaiming that Daniel Ortega won re-election in a landslide.” http://bit.ly/uQW4mq
AIM IN THE NEWS: Video of #OccupyLA captured by Don Irvine was featured on Bill O’Reilly’s Talking Points Memo last night: http://bit.ly/uNtSAn.
MEDIA WATCH: It seems that a majority of Americans are not happy with how conventional media have been treating Herman Cain, both before and after the harassment scandal, according to a recent poll. Don Irvine reports: “The poll asked respondents the following question: On Saturday, presidential candidate Herman Cain made this statement: ‘There are too many people in the media who are downright dishonest.’ Do you agree or disagree with that statement?” http://bit.ly/s53QkP
DENY, SIDE-STEP & OBSCURE: Pundits like Jesse Jackson first would not admit that Occupiers were getting violent. In Act Two, they’ll blame the outliers, but protect the cause. Don Irvine comments: “Jackson doesn’t support the Occupy Movement because it compares favorably with Martin Luther King’s vision, but rather because it is an anti-American movement made up of mostly left-wing protesters who are closely aligned with his own political beliefs.” http://bit.ly/v25rBg

WHAT WE’RE READING: Embattled Attorney General Eric Holder offered what amounts to “my bad” before Congress today: “Attorney General Eric Holder says an investigation of…Operation Fast and Furious was flawed in concept as well as in execution, never should have happened and ‘it must never happen again’.” Full details here: http://bit.ly/sw90FR.
REVOLOUTION?: AIM guest columnist Herbert London uncovers some glaring philosophical contradictions found in the Occupy movement: “In some respects this is like the Committee of Public Safety during the French Revolution, but if history repeats itself in this contemporary movement, it is more like farce rather than revolution. It appears as if each of these soi disant Robespierres has a cell phone and an iPod, the very instruments of capitalism.” http://bit.ly/uT8Kip
RE-EDUCATED EDUCATORS: Accuracy in Academia reports how conservative viewpoints can be forgiven if you switch teams…no matter what. http://bit.ly/ucGsm7
