    If she wins, then I guess the Daily Show and Colbert Report might as well pack it in, since they edit video to give a particular slant all the time. And with splendidly comedic results I might add.

    The difference being they do it for comedic effect. Breitbart, no.

    But.....

    Her leaving the USDA out of her lawsuit and going after Breitbart and his companies only is comparable to Christina Taylor Green's parents filing a lawsuit against Sarah Palin but not naming Jared Loughner.

    She's posturing, probably at the behest of the NAACP. Its a witch hunt, and Bretibart will be the big winner, regardless of who wins the suit.

    Here's the best part...

    Boo fucking hoo! :lol:

    The fact that she actually blames Breitbart for her continued failure to secure employment just takes the fucking cake. I mean really? No, seriously... REALLY? :eusa_eh:

    I'm not aware of any legal distinction.

    If you are, I'd appreciate a link. :thup:

    Who is responsible for the action? Not the USDA. Your argument with Palin is ridiculous.

    Brietbart considers his site to be a news site. Therefore, he is possibly guilty of defamation of character or slander.

    The comedians do not consider their shows to be news.

    You're welcome.

    Which action?

    Her not getting offered a job and blaming it on Breitbart?

    Or her being pressured to resign by the USDA?
