    We don't know that Brietbart lied. He says that's how he got the tape. The same way as he presented it to us. I thought it was enough to call her a racist right along with everyone else.

    O'Reilly did, after she resigned, but before he knew it. He has apologized.

    I wouldn't say this is forthright:

    I'm sorry. For some reason it takes at least an hr for me to load a video. I have a good computer, but have dial-up. Unless someone can tell me how it can be done faster I don't try to play them.

    No.

    She should sue the Messiah and the federal government for their precipitous unilateral firing of her before Fox even had the time to air the story.

    That's where the measurable harm was enacted.

    But can she sue? Does she have a case? Fox news in their *news-reporting portions* never demanded she be fired or accused her of racism (that I'm aware of, anyway, I'm not sure - I don't sit and watch it) but I did see that individuals like O'Reilly did.

    I think she'd have a hard case, actually. . . she'd have to be able to prove that they intentionally destroyed her career and were quite intent on getting her fired.
    How can Fox have intentionally destroyed her career when the President fired her before the report was aired?

    I think she would have a better case against the NAACP or White House. It would be difficult to accuse Fox News of anything since she had resigned before being accused of racism. I don't see her winning anything from Fox. NAACP or White House I believe she could.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Gabriel, do you feel pretty silly now since you know that Fox didn't comment on the video until AFTER the White House forced her to resign?

    Maybe Fox News should sue.....
