    Neither option is journalistic or ethical for a "News Channel" IMO.

    The WH had already forced her to resign befor this ran. Apparantly Bill 'O was ignorant of that little fact.
    She was thrown under the bus before anyone on FNC reported on it.

    I'm not saying the Acorn tapes were a sham but say they were.... Maybe Fox did learn a lesson and that's why the DIDN"T run Brietbarts tapes until AFTER the WH forced her to resign.
    If anyone should be sueing maybe it's Fox for all the lies being told about them concerning this case.

    They obviously would have ran the story if she hadn't resigned yet.

    Vilsack screwed up. That's irrelevant to Fox's initial behavior.

    I agree, journalist and ethical shouldn't be used in the same sentence these days. Check out Journolist if you don't believe me.

    I'm sorry, what behavior would that be? Reporting a news story that they and the WH both thought was legit? I'd be more inclined to think the other news sources like MSNBC not reporting on it because it makes their side look bad to be more of a problem.

    Tom Vilsack thought was legit.

    You mean MSNBC not reporting it because they hadn't confirmed the video yet? That's more of a problem? FNC rushed to air bad news for the administration. O'Reilly should be made to watch all of his segments on Dan Rather.

    Exactly. If there's a news story, even if you feel like it shouldn't be a news story, it would be unethical NOT to report it, not the other way around.

    From what has been revealed, it seems that Fox was as cautious and careful as they could have been in reporting this story. People talking about them trying to slander Sherrod are, frankly, talking out of their ass. Or they're confusing opinionated pundits with the actual news portion of the channel; and I don't know why they care what O'Reilly says, but he's already apologized anyways.

    O'Reilly is not news, he is opinion.

    He's the face of the network. He should be giving opinions about confirmed facts. Otherwise, it's irresponsible or propaganda.
