    Look at all the people [in the White House] who believe the injustice served this woman was appropriate [since they were the ones who punished her]. How pathetic can you get/ It was the story that caused it and it was posted and ranted about by the libertarian [when did they become libertarian?] Fox News outlet [yes, and Glenn Beck sided with her]...from blog to national television [they lied that Fox News caused her forced resignation by airing the video and calling her a racist]. Don't you think [the White House] should...um...you know...stop bull*****ing [I think you spelled that wrong, Gabriel] for political gain?

    Maybe Fox News should sue.....
    That's demonstrably false:

    Fox News amplifies Breitbart's deceptively edited video. On July 19, FoxNews.com reported: "Days after the NAACP clashed with Tea Party members over allegations of racism, a video has surfaced showing an Agriculture Department official regaling an NAACP audience with a story about how she withheld help to a white farmer facing bankruptcy." The FoxNews.com article further reported that "[t]he video clip was first posted by BigGovernment.com" and that "FoxNews.com is seeking a response from both the NAACP and the USDA." The article is no longer available on FoxNews.com but was republished on another website:

    They put it on their Fox Nation page, which isn't hard news. Still, is there anything inaccurate in what they reported? If so, point it out.

    The NAACP and the USDA both had opportunity to respond. And the NAACP had the unedited video all along. There's no excuse.

    By what standard do you believe that you are in a position to play judge and jury in this matter? That's why we have COURTS of LAW Convincing partisans on internet sites, is irrelevant.

    Conservatives hate it when people get found not guilty because of a loophole.

    Now, using a loophole to get themselves out of trouble ("It wasn't Fox News! It was Fox News.com!") -- well, that's different.

    If the website DID post the video and said she was racist before she was forced to resign, then you might have something there.

    Then again, so did all the other news outlets. Olbermann even said he was angry at his own network for doing it.

    And it makes the Obama administration look like total buffoons because they watched these news outlets [wait...I thought they didn't care about them...?] and assumed that there wasn't anymore to the story. THE WHITE HOUSE forced her to resign, not Fox News or Breitbart. THE WHITE HOUSE is the one at fault here. She should sue them.

    Make all the excuses you please, just don't ever expect to be taken seriously when using either Fox Noise or Breitbarf as a source. Both have proven time and again to have ZERO credibility. None. Zilch. Nadda.
