Man oh man, the media is eating this up now. While the public seems to be placing blame where it is due the most in this case — obviously with the White House — I feel emphasis coming from most in the MSM in disparaging Andrew Breitbart and Fox News.
I don’t have an exact re-cap of all the events leading up to the first mention of it on Fox. I am currently looking into that because of all the accounts I keep hearing on Fox and throughout the day on talk radio, Fox had not even mentioned it until AFTER the White House got word of it and persuaded her to resign by warning her about the big scary Fox and Glenn Beck which was headed her way.
I cannot prove anything but something stinks here.
Yes, Breitbart, Fox, The White House, all owe an apology to Sherrod. However; Ann Coulter mentioned on Hannity last night that she believed Breitbart was “set up.” I agree. However; it still does not excuse Breitbart (whom I adore and shall remain a loyalist to biggovernment.com) from failing to doublecheck the entirety of the speech.
Still, I find it a little odd that in the same week the NAACP passes a ridiculous resolution against the “racist elements” of the Tea Party with specificity (I am still waiting for their resolution against Harry Reid), a mysterious videotape appears.
How about this? Someone from the other side pieces this together and sends it to Breitbart. He plays it, Sherrod gets fired because afterall, this administration never investigates anything before rendering opinion (like the AZ immigration law and Obama saying the Cambridge police acted “stupidly”), the truth then comes out and Sherrod gets to attack Brietbart and Fox for a couple of weeks.
I wouldn’t mention it — because I truly hate conspiracy theories — but it is odd that Fox has been a target of the administration from the get-go and the three major networks have all lost millions of viewers within the last year alone while Fox continues to grow and THIS surfaces months before a midterm election.
In the end, we know the Obama administration acts “stupidly” all the time with rushing to judgment. But unfortunately, with the rest of the media in his corner, Fox will get the biggest beating over this.
It’s just a theory. However; I feel it in my bones that we have not heard the end of this and there is indeed one more person out there to surface.
