Sherrod To Sue Breitbart

It's about time something like this happens, else scum like Breitbart will continue to smear for smear's sake without repercussion.

"...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.
Breitbart 'had to know that he was targeting me,' Sherrod said. 'At this point, he hasn't apologized. I don't want it at this point, and he'll definitely hear from me.'
And as sure as there are stars in the sky, the right immediately shoots back and makes it about the evil Sherrod (but she wasn't the subject of the smear, right?)
Brent Bozell, head of the conservative Media Research Center, said Thursday Sherrod was the one who needed to apologize.
"Andrew Breitbart is going to be fine. He's done nothing wrong," Bozell said.
"I wonder if Ms. Sherrod, who is such a champion of transparency, will publicly disclose who is putting her up to this. And I also hope this champion of honesty will stop lying about Fox News," which has been accused of pushing the story before full details emerged, he said.
