As for Fox, damn right they deserve to be bashed for it's handling of this story. Apart from Shep Smith (who I think is as good as they come) they had a field day of misinformation after the news came out that she was fired. Like Captain America eludes to, integrity is not one of Fox's strong points. I have seen it many a time.



    Speaking for myself, I did post earlier in this thread that the Administration and NAACP were a bunch of spineless jellyfish for taking the bait. I would have though they would have wisened up after ACORN, but it apperas they have not leaned any lesson. No doubt they should have egg on their faces for allowing themselves to be duped. Shame on them. And shame on any news network that went with the story without substantiating it. And shame on Breitbart for creative editing to push his agenda.

    There's a lot of shame to go around.
    FOX News didn't mention this story until after she had been fired. Beck passed on it and O'Reilly mentioned it at the end of his show. She was fired before the story even aired on FOX. But somehow it's all FOX's fault?

    The FOX News bashers were exposed in this very thread. The truth does matter, just as context does. O'Reilly and Hannity took the video out of context and ran with it. Beck defended the woman because of context and how it matters - 24 hours after the woman had already been fired. FOX News deserves some blame here, but the egg on the face of the Obama administration and the leftwaffe in this thread would fill up the Superdome in New Orleans.

    Eventually and even then only to some extent.
    Obviously Mr. Vislak would not have authorised the dismissal of Mrs. Sherrod without either direct authority of W.H.
    What has not become apparent in this entire case is WHO gave Mr. Vislak the permission for him to authorise Mrs. Sherrod's dismissal?

    Gibbs stutters and hems and haws like a demented ape, but still manages to avoid having to give an answer to the simple question.
    Who gave Mr. Vislak instruction to dismiss Mrs. Sherrod.

    My money is on Rahm Emmanuel giving "the order". And I know this is a bit off topic, but is it just me or is Gibbs the worst WH Press Secretary ever?

    Yes, I know. Who said it was all Fox's fault? I certainly didn't.

    The FOX News bashers were exposed in this very thread. The truth does matter, just as context does. O'Reilly and Hannity took the video out of context and ran with it. Beck defended the woman because of context and how it matters - 24 hours after the woman had already been fired.
    Don't forget the next day before the actual truth came out.

    Fox is supposed to be the media, an entity to educate people on happenings/events. Thy should have know better, but they still ****ed up. As for the administration and the NAAPCP, they should equally hang their head in shame. I'm disgusted by it all.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Depends on what you are looking for in a press secretary...do you want a true press secretary or do want a minister of misinformation. Seems to me like the press corps is willingly taking it...being told what to think, what questions to ask, etc. Says a lot more about them than it does him.
