Shirley Sherrod the former employee at the Agriculture Department, who was the target of vicious libel, spearhead by right-wing blogger Andrew Breibart, and spread by a network of wing-nuts in the right-wing media, which includes Fox Cable News, says she is going to sue. She is going to sue Andrew Breibart, who has a history of libeling people with whom he disagrees, politically. Ms. Sherrod will attempt to hold Mr. Breibart accountable for his recklessness.
Yesterday at the National Association of Black Journalists' convention in San Diego, Ms Sherrod announced her intent to sue Mr Breibart and she had no kind words for Fox News.
Shirley Sherrod --""I will not give Fox an interview, period. They had their chance to get the truth, and they were not interested. I don't know all that Fox was doing behind the scenes to get the effect they were looking for."
Fox Cable News host and former soft porn book writer, Bill O'Reilly has said that Ms. Sherrod was injecting race into the conversation. Ms Sherrod responding to a reporter's question, replied that having lived as a black person, "I saw what Fox did and what Breitbart did. I knew it was racism, and nobody had to tell me that."
