    Re: Andrew Breitbart sued by Shirley Sherrod over damaging video

    Breitbart's intention was to destroy her professionally to score points against Obama. She was collateral damage to him.

    I wonder how much some of you would enjoy having your statements here mischaracterized and used against you on national television, so that millions of people think that you're a racist.

    I welcome this lawsuit against Breitbart, and I hope he ends up reaping what he's sown.

    Re: Andrew Breitbart sued by Shirley Sherrod over damaging video

    Why am I the only one that doesn't think this lady is some hero, because she "learned from her mistakes?"

    How many here would be standing up and defending a child molester who got out of prison and said he had learned from his mistakes? You would still consider him a child molester, a demon, a monster, even 50 years after his crime. Why is this lady suddenly not racist because she "learned" from when she WAS admittedly discriminating against white people? If once a convict, always a convict, then once a racist, always a racist.

    She was racist, she has been caught on video admitting to her racism, and time, nor "learning from mistakes" will ever change that.

    Burn in hell you racist bitch. Don't worry, be racist.

    Here Breitbart Admits he took the video out of context.

    Do you agree that the edited video took things out of context?

    Well, yes. But I put up what I had. It granted a great portion of her redemptive tale, but not all of it. If I could do it all over again, I should have waited for the full video to get to me.
    His excuse (which many believe is a lie) is that he didn't have the full tape. That will be an issue.

    Breitbart Posted Heavily Edited Video To Smear Shirley Sherrod

    After A Months-Long Investigation Of Pigford, Breitbart Has No Idea What Pigford Is About

    Andrew Breitbart has claimed to have spent months investigating possible fraud in the Pigford litigation, a discrimination case brought by black farmers against the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Yet, despite repeatedly making wild allegations of nefarious activities surrounding Pigford, the Obama administration, Breitbart victim Shirley Sherrod and others, Breitbart made clear today that he has no clue about the Pigford litigation.
    The story goes to PROVE that Brietbart's explanation of the his understand of the case is not in factually correct according to the

    The consent decree that settled in the case in 1999

    So, after all the smearing of and propaganda, the man doesn't even have an accurate understanding of the case, which implied it was more about defaming those involved than accurately reporting the facts.

    Brietbart showed a video that was not complete. No one has ever proved that he had anymore of it than he posted. He said he received it that way. MM constantly shows parts of videos that they have the complete video. Do they get sued?

    Sorry dummy, the first amendment doesn't cover libel and slander.
    Actually, it is extremely difficult for a public figure to prevail in a libel/slander suit. Besides, truth is an absolute defense. If she really said what's depicted in the video, Sherod will not win.

    If you want to discuss the merits of the suit, then get the facts straight. The big question here is malice and intent. Did he intentionally try to defame her?

    But you still don't seem to have an understanding of the FACTS. The video was edited.

    That the clip was edited from the 43 minute speech is not at question, you said that Breitbart edited it, that is false:

    The crux of the Shirley Sherrod controversy is what she said outside of the two-minute video clip posted by Big Government -- whether she was, as she claims, telling a story about how she overcame racial prejudice while helping poor farmers in Georgia, or whether the clip is a good encapsulation of her views. So we asked Andrew Breitbart, the founder of Big Government, why he hasn't posted the full video.

    "I don't have it," Breitbart told TPMmuckraker in an interview. Breitbart said his source sent him just the edited clips at first, but is in the process of sending the full video.

    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.

    Well of course that goes without saying...but still...

    Im just trying to understand how the video was purported to be out of context. The video that we all linked to and saw here didnt stop after she admitted to treating whites differently than blacks. It continued to show her comments about how her actions humbled her. That was all in the Breitbart video. The ONLY people I felt looked stupid were the NAACP members in attendance that cheered when she said she did it and then later didnt stand up and applaud her for the later comments.

    I dont know...can you fault someone for posting a 4 minute video if people stop watching after a minute? Can you fault Breitbart for the actions of the NAACP and current administration because they didnt bother to watch the whole video and instead just said..."oh...damn...here we are trying to paint the Tea Party as racists and now WE look racist...so...lets fire her ass"

    So...make a mistake and there is no way to atone for it? me...i DO find it heroic when people learn and grow from their mistakes and set out to help others benefit from it as well. Does it excuse the past mistakes? No...of course not. Change in our behaviors is all that is required for that to occur. She made a mistake. She learned from it. She taught others so that they can benefit from it. What would you prefer...public scourging????
