The right-wing echo chamber has been beating the drums for a couple of days now about a supposedly racist (black) USDA worker, promptly sacked by Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack on the strength of Fox reporting of her supposedly offensive remarks.

The rest of the story is instructive. Hardly what Fox News or the odious Andrew Breitbart reported. The full video apparently will back up her account, in the appropriate fuller context, of what she said and did TWENTY-FOUR YEARS AGO. It is Acorn Faux reporting redux.


It occurs to me that Sen. Blanche Lincoln could score some courage points here. No breath being held. It appears that a grave injustice has been done to a black woman on account of right-wing hysteria. CNN has now interviewed the white farm family the fired USDA worker actually helped, not hurt.
