    It was adding flavor. She has no case, and I all ready explained why but that was ignroed because it BLOWS HER CASE AWAY.

    The link that started it all.

    Read it and watch, read it and weep. She HAS NO CASE.

    Oh and he didn't edit it... again, she HAS NO CASE.

    Breitbart said he'll post the full video, if he can get permission from the video production company who filmed it for a local NAACP chapter. He also maintained that he didn't edit the clip and that it was sent to him already edited.

    So we want to waste time on cheering on this racist hucksters BS "I'm a victim of racist BB!!" (BB = Brietbart) go for it. The case, if she files it, will go no where, and end with her looking horrible. I heard on the radio there is another video out there showing her talking about more recent events and is worse then this clip. Waiting to see if that was BS or not. IF a Link pops I'll post it, but not holding my breath right this second.

    Pretty much.

    Look at this, we're having a thoughtful and intelligent discussion.
    (Not that this is unusual for you.)
    Hopefully, it will encourage others to do the same.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    No, she has no case. He wasn't attacking her, he didn't edit the video, thus... you are completely off base.

    I could care less about her, I think this "She's a victim" crap is gag inducing. You don;'t like the soure... find a counter to the info provided or STFU.

    The National Enquirer wasn't attacking Burnett either. They were merely **cough** reporting **cough**. And it doesn't matter who edited the tape. Breitbart put it up for everybody to see, which makes him culpable. The matter of who actually edited the tape is nothing but a red herring.

    Actually, based on that, she does have a case.

    She is a victim. She may not be a perfect person. Hell, she could be totally vile. That does not change the fact she was smeared by a distorted video and story.

    Sherrod came out accusing Breitbart of being "racist" and wanting all black people to be slaves again. If she has a defamation suit, he arguable has the exact same one under the same logic...

    Her case is a loser.

    652E. Publicity Placing Person in False Light

    One who gives publicity to a matter concerning another that places the other before the public in a false light is subject to liability to the other for invasion of his privacy, if

    (a) the false light in which the other was placed would be highly offensive to a reasonable person, and
    (b) the actor had knowledge of or acted in reckless disregard as to the falsity of the publicized matter and the false light in which the other would be placed.
    It is not clear if she would win or not, but the trial would probably make it past the initial procedures and an investigation would probably show that Breibart was clearly attempting to smear her.

    Breibart's claim as of now is that he was attempting to show the audience applaud when Sherrod said that she was reluctant to help a white farmer. First of all, that is complete bull****, they were merely giving her sympathy because her father was murdered by a white farmer. Secondly, that was not Breibart's initial intentions at all, which is highlighted by the post that accompanied the video.
