    thats the real story, but you won't see libs talking about it much, if at all....much easier to talk about breitbart and fox news....let's ignore the people who actually fired her because they rushed to judgment

    i predict this thread will get little response from libs

    its not a matter of belief, its called doing your homework before you FIRE someone...it was clear as day the clips were, well...clipped...

    the only lie i've seen is that implication she did this while working for the USDA....it is not a lie that her actions were racist

    It's not the first time damage control came before justice. It won't be the last I'm sure. But you've got a good point here, Yurt. A lot of people screwed up on this one.

    Yes - the real story is in fact the Obama administration's inane knee jerk reaction to a blog post. Also the NAACP's reaction to a speech that was actually GIVEN TO THEM not so long ago. Both the Obama administration and the NAACP denounced Sherrod, and then hastily backtracked - making both appear utterly incompetent. Not so important when it is the NAACP, but VERY IMPORTANT when it is the administration of the President of the United States.

    As for the quickly attempted smear against Fox News - not gonna work. The record shows Fox acted cautiously on the story and gave it only little mention prior to the Obama administration going nutso against Mrs. Sherron and demanding she resign.

    This incident is a stark warning to the American people of just how incompetent the Obama administration is repeatedly proving itself to be.

    And as an aside - it should also be noted that the original Breitbart video does in fact show evidence of racism within the NAACP. As Mrs. Sherrod was giving an example of her own previous racism, those in attendance were indicating AGREEMENT with her racist positions. Another point of reference the mainstream media is quickly attempting to ignore...

    true and we all need to learn how to deal with the internet age

    what boggles the mind about naacp and obama's admin is that they relied solely on a blogger who doesn't hide the fact that he is solely for the right, i don't think he claims to be unbiased at all...

    Hell, I hope not! :lol:

    It doesn't excuse what Breitbart and the other players on the media side did. At all. But yeah, the Administration was way too knee jerk on this. A LOT of people were wrong here, on both "sides".
