Obama tells ABC News Vilsack "jumped the gun" on ousting Sherrod

I think it is very nice that both the President and the Secretary Vilsack have apologized for what happened to Mrs. Sherrod. However, I think instead of this being a story about Obama doing something wrong it should more rightly be focused on Breitbart and Fox News.

It's about time that everyone demands a higher level of journalistic standard from Fox. It is also about time that the rest of the media follow the lead of Fox news without doing the appropriate research.

We all know what those people are about. It is not really a news organization but rather a political arm of the extreme right that cares more about political strategy rather than fact.

They should be held to account for what happened in this case and for all the other misleading stories they file as truth. Remember the death panels?
