Welcome to the 21st Century where we all get our 5 minutes of fame. You just don’t want to get those five minutes on FOX News. Just ask Shirley Sherrod. She used to work for the Obama administration. Until FOX News edited a speech of hers to make her sound like a racist firebrand using her federal job to keep white people down. Of course, in fairness to FOX news, they gave Ms. Sherrod more than 5 minutes. They spent all day publicly defaming her with the help of all their outraged right wing pundits. O’Reilly was shocked. Sean Hannity was appalled. And Anne Coulter was apoplectic. (A media lynching, Justice Thomas? you be the judge). Well, considering that an honest editing of this 2 minute clip would reveal that Ms. Sherrod actually helped the white family in her story keep their farm, that  she was telling her audience how God had changed her heart and showed her not to judge people by their skin color and that all this had happened 24 years ago. But you see, that isn’t what FOX News does. They don’t report the truth. They weave a lie. And an innocent person like Shirley Sherrod gets her 5 minutes of defaming. It’s what FOX News does. That’s why its the most trusted news source in America. Go figure.



  1. You forgot to mention the lynching the Obama adminstration gave her.

  2. Were the journalists in the Sherrod affair so much different than the blogger? Moreover, are bloggers who provide news not journalists as the “journalists” claimed after getting the story wrong?
