    Incorrect. Without Breitbart yes there wouldn't have been a story, without Fox News there still would have been. Fox didn't report on the story until after the firing.

    Had either of those worthless excuses done the due diligence that a credible news organization does
    Anyone who actually did their research knows that Fox News did this at least as much as the other news stations. Anyone not simply spewing left-wing talking points, I mean.

    BEFORE trying to destroy a decent persons career
    Nobody was trying to destroy anyone's carreer. Even Breitbart's grudge was with the NAACP, not Sharrod.

    My fault, I hadn't seen that.

    Anyone think maybe the WH was so quick on the trigger was because they didn't want anyone researching Charlie and Shirley? Some odd things in their past. Money and lawsuits. Being hired by USDA after sueing them. Millions/Billions of dollars going to black farmers, but only since this being brought out. Obama bringing up all that money only after Brietbart stirred this mess up. The timing seems weird.
    I mean did any of you know about all this money going to black farmers? Was it really not going to go to them until all this came up? Where is it coming from? There was suppose to be a fund or something but how do we know that? Is it going to be added to our debt? Did Shirley and Charlie really only get 300,000 for pain and suffering and why DID USDA hire her after that?

    I haven't heard about this.

    Do you have a source?

Had either of those worthless excuses done the due diligence that a credible news organization does BEFORE trying to destroy a decent persons career with a FALSELY constructed hit piece, it would have ended there. Nothing you can say or that followed makes what these racebaiting scumbags did, "ok." Period. That NEITHER of the perpetrators of this viscous personal attack on decent American, has taken responsibility for, or apologized for their clear wronging of this loyal American Public Servant, proves without a doubt that neither of these wastes of oxygen have even a facade of honor.
    Now reconcile your hatred of those two organizations with the lack of vetting done by the NAACP and administration who took what amounts to an online rumor and fired a woman without thinking. Who is the REAL assholes in this particular case?

    And how do you reconcile what is now being clearly demonstrated...that the NAACP condemned Ms Sherrod and the White House forced her to resign before Fox News had even run a story?

    You know who the REAL clowns are? People that blame all their own faults and failings on the Fox News boogeyman because they know all they have to do is say "Fox News"and their mindless minions will shreik in horror and disgust. Pathetic.

    No buddy, "the real clowns here" are those that are still making excuses for the racebaiters. And those intellectually dishonest enough to fail to acknowledge only half of "the story" yet again. The DIFFERENCE between the lying liars at Fox Noise and the King of the RaceBaiters, Breitbarf, and The Whitehouse and the NAACP, is that the WH and the NAACP have acknowledged the mistake of going off without all of the facts, made a Mia Culpa and apologized. Your pukes haven't.

    But you knew that, however, you just CAN'T take the honest path. Typical conservative "values."

    A source for what? my speculations? No
    But if you google Sherrod sues USDA you'll come up with her being awarded 150,000 and Charlie being awarded 150,000 for pain and suffering. You'll also see where millions were awarded to black farmers but I don't think they've received it yet. I heard Obama talking about on TV. I think he said it was over a billion. I hit on somebody's link here on DP that paints Charlie as a racist. I'm sorry I can't always figure out how to put links in. The few times i was able to it was by accident. I go to the site, copy what I think I need to, go to advanced, click on the earth, put what I think is the link click OK but the links don't work.
    But it's no secret that she sued USDA and then was hired by them.

    Do you also condemn the race baiters on your side of the fence? MSNBC for constantly trying to paint the tea party as racists. The NAACP for the same?

    Who I do or don't "condemn" is not the topic of this thread and is irrelevant. Try sticking to the subject instead of attempting to divert it to another.
