I am speaking of the Sherrod/ Breitbart situation. If you haven't seen or heard of it by now then let me bring you up to speed real quick on this matter. Agriculture Department employee Shirley Sherrod was fired by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack last week because a Conservative blogger, Andrew Breitbart posted an edited video of Sherrod on his blog. Vilsack realized later that the video was edited and saw the whole speech Sherrod made that wasn't messed with. WHEW!!
The blogger made a big mistake. First of all he didn't check the source of the video or the fact that it was edited. Still he posted it. So now she will sue the blogger who posted an edited video of her making racially tinged remarks. I know I would sue him too and make an effort to show people on the web that you can't pass crap around without checking if it's true. It's the same with emails. Check if it's true before you forward it on to your friends. There are plenty of places that you can look to see if it's a hoax or not. Just please check your sources.
