We have examined several times the false claim that the original edited videotape released by Andrew Breitbart of Shirley Sherrod’s  speech to a local NAACP group was misleading in that it allegedly failed to reveal that Sherrod overcame her negative feelings towards a white farmer when she was a state agriculture official.
