"New Front in Racism Battle?' If I hadn't had the misfortune of watching some TV last night, I'd believe your front page story. But I was stuck with TV. And it showed Ms. Sherrod's entire speech which shows the Post--as well as the NAACP and most of America--continue to be snookered by our vitrolic Right wing, which continues to dominate our discourse with lies and hate. You owe your readers an apology.So when I went to look for the article in the ONLINE WaPo just now (hours later), I found the article, all right, but it now has a new headline: "Firing of USDA official Shirley Sherrod now under review"
Don'tcha just grit your teeth over this kind of b.s.? How long are we going to suffer the slings & arrows of the Right wing?
UPDATE: This is my comment to Rachel Maddow on Huffington Post this evening:
Rachel, the WaPo is in there pitching along with Fox. This morning they tried to pitch the story as "providing fodder for those who call Obama biased." Now that the whole story has come out, and Vilsack has apologized to Ms. Sherrod and offered her another job with the Dept of Ag., WaPo is saying "how the White House veered off message." Anything to dump on Obama. The whole thing is disgusting.
