UPDATE: Also, check out the superb, much-needed, spot-on-accurate editorial by E.J. Dionne in today’s Washington Post, entitled “Enough right-wing propaganda.” The bottom line: “The mainstream media and the Obama administration must stop cowering before a right wing that has persistently forced its propaganda to be accepted as news by convincing traditional journalists that ‘fairness’ requires treating extremist rants as “one side of the story.'”

    cowering before a right wing that has persistently forced its propaganda to be accepted as news by convincing traditional journalists that ‘fairness’ requires treating extremist rants as “one side of the story.'”  Right on E. J. Dionne!

    This story is very sad.  The Administration acted frantically and without substance, when it failed to fire the administrator who kept phoning Ms. Sherrod as she was driving to her home and demanding that she immediately submit her resignation, and when it offered her a job expecting her to reconcile the racism within the Department of Agriculture.

    I hope Ms. Sherrod will sue the federal government because she has suffered racial discrimination by a department in which she worked for many years.  My suspicion is she was a good employee and that there is nothing in her file to justify her firing.
