    From the information we have now, several things are very interesting.

    First did FOX/Briebart know that the inital tape was edited? Did they actually have the whole tape, or was it just the snippet shown. Assuming they only had the snippet, did they actually try to find the rest of it, or did they just post it. If on the other hand they had the whole tape and did the editing themselves, then hoo boy. heads will roll.

    The second seperate part is the NAACP and WH/USDA reaction. I am wondering why they didnt do more research themselves beforing forcing a resignation. This plays into the whole "thrown under the bus" meme that has been circulating. Poor judgement by the goverment people in my opinion.

    Today should be an interesting round of retractions and aplologies. Out of the whole mess only Sherrod is probably going to come out of this looking clean. As for lawsuits the media people and the NAACP will probably get a pass, as long as they were doing it in good faith (i.e. only had the edited tape.) The big lawsuit loser will be the USDA.

    Fox didn't report the story until AFTER the White House threw her under the bus. Get your fags straight.

    What that means is that this is yet another case of "Black on Black Crime".

    Never happen. Media organizations have so much protection under the 1A and court jurisprudence that even if FOX edited the tape themselves it probably wouldnt be enough to win a case against them.

    You're right the lie that Fox News released a story about this before she resigned is not going to work anymore. It's a flat out lie, and the fact that even after it's been shown to be a lie to you you'll keep saying it is more lies.

    But go on, continue to spread your lies.

    Um, thats what I'm talking about. Proving libel or slander in ANY court against a media organization is next to impossible if it is straight reporting. Only in the case of opinion pieces is there more leeway, and the awards for those are usually pretty small.
