Default Fox News gets a woman fired..

I knew that title would get your attention, it's also the current administrations fault for watching Faux News for "facts"..

Re-Hire Shirley Sherrod Immediately. Fox News Will Not Win. - Yahoo! News

Quote:
This woman, who has helped countless farmers keep their land, was accused by Fox of racism based on manipulative editing of a tape of a speech she gave about how she learned that race should never matter in helping the poor.

For telling her tale of enlightenment, and discovering that racism is never the answer, in any community, she was lied about, misquoted, and ultimately lost her job she held in the US Department of Agriculture.
and no, it doesn't surprise me.

it wasn't actually faux that started it this time, it was the fuckbag andrew breitbart. He selectively edited her speech and then put it on his blog, and then faux picked it up. I'm pretty unimpressed with this white house in nearly every way possible.
