Sherrod to Sue Breitbart Over Edited Video That Got Her Fired
See that's funny, if I were Shirley Sherrod I would start with suing the guys who fired me over a video they saw on the Internet and then work my way down to the guy who put the video on the Internet. But maybe that's just me.
Former Agriculture Department employee Shirley Sherrod said Thursday she will pursue a lawsuit against conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart.
Breitbart posted an edited video clip of Sherrod appearing to say she discriminated against a white farmer looking for assistance. The clip showed her addressing a chapter of the NAACP.
"I will definitely do it," she said when asked whether she was considering legal action. Sherrod made her remarks during an appearance at the National Association of Black Journalists convention in San Diego, California.
Maybe she should also try getting in touch with the NAACP who kicked this entire thing off by spotting the Breitbart clip and then calling for her head. Sure they issued an apology but what's an apology worth when you can sue?
Why stop there? Sue Breitbart's ISP. Sue Microsoft for making the operating system that he used to go in and edit her speech. Sue herself for making the statement in the first place, whether or not it was taken out of context.
Think bigger, girl, think bigger.
