    It might we'll have to wait and see. But unlike most around here, I'm not afraid to make a call, and I'm not afraid to admit when I'm wrong.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Rather lost his job NOT for the report, but because it was shady reporting and he refused to back down after it was proven he'd been rolled leading to doubt about his ability to tell fact from fiction. Nice try dan, but

    Honestly Vich, I don't know but at the same time, there is enough evidence to at least know that there could be a civil trial.
    Dismissing it so quickly like you did is a bit reckless.
    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.

    True, but doesn't Breitbart own the company he works with? I don't see him losing his job over it all. Ultimately, what is the point of a lawsuit if you don't think you can collect damages?

    I don't really think those who support Breitbart will stop over this, and those who hate him already hate him anyway. She has to think she can collect damages, but I think it will be an uphill battle for her to collect damages.

    It's right on topic as it speaks to whether or not it was believable to BB whether the tape was edited or not.

    I don't think she has a case against BB...she could possibly go after his source.

    She was fired. It could very well prove to be a valid libel case. We'll have to wait and see.

    SHE HAS NO CASE. And she and her hubby aren't the post-racial saints you people want to believe they are.
    It doesn't matter what she is. What matters is that the context of her speech was destroyed to make it look as if she said something she was not saying and it led to her dismissal from her job. She has the right to sue and if she can put together a good case, perhaps she can win. Time will tell.

    I'm still waiting for you to post those "vicious lies" about Palin and/or a link to a video in which a portion of Palin's speech was taken out of context to slur her....

    The problem for her is going to reside in 1) the White House's well-publicized war with the "right-wing media," so the WH's reliance on it would be highly dubious, and 2) the NAACP having been in possession of the unedited tape the whole time.

    Don't know what her claim is going to be, but as for being fired being the damage -- the train of liability on that looks to be pretty easily derailed.
