The news today is that Shirley Sherrod is going to sue Andrew Breitbart for posting the edited video of her being a racist 24 years ago and making people think she's a racist still.
Shirley Sherrod, the fired and subsequently vindicated Department of Agriculture employee, said today she will sue the conservative blogger who posted doctored video on the Internet last week that made her appear racist.
I'm not a lawyer, but it seems obvious that the ones who need to be sued are 1) the White House, for wrongful termination, and 2) the NAACP, for maligning her reputation.
"He had to know that he was targeting me," Sherrod told reporters at a meeting of the National Association of Black Journalists in San Diego.
"He hasn't apologized. I don't want it at this point. He'll definitely hear from me," she said.
When asked if she planned to sue Breitbart, she replied, "I will definitely do it."
She either hasn't talked to a lawyer and is mouthing off, or she's been put up to it by the radical left.
Sherrod also put much of the blame on the Fox news channel. When told President Obama told ABC's "The View" today that a lot of people deserved blame for the incident, including his administration and the media for playing up controversy, she said that wasn't accurate.
"It wasn't all media. It was Fox," Sherrod told the black journalists' association. "So I really think he needs to re-examine what he's saying there."
She's spreading the anti-Fox talking points, which everyone knows are false. Sherrod has not been damaged by Breitbart - she's now far more desirable in the marketplace - and his point in posting the video was that it demonstrated the lack of negetive reaction among members of the NAACP when presented a racist story.
