Shirley Sherrod Breitbart Original Video clip Helping white farmer save his farm

We have written many times about the Shirley Sherrod case against Andrew Breitbart (now his wife is substituted as defendant) and Larry O’Connor over an “edited” video which Sherrod alleges unfairly depicted her as racist leading to her firing by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Sherrod’s claim, repeated mindlessly by the media, is...

On this second anniversary of Andrew Breitbart’s death, Legal Insurrection and others are remembering Andrew.

Some of Andrew’s enemies in life, however, continue their efforts in his death. I seriously thought about not calling attention to such people, but that would be a cop out.

Two years ago today, Andrew Breitbart died.

The entire conservative blogosphere was in shock, and even some opponents of Andrew, such as Eric Boehlert of Media Matters, paid their respects.

There’s not much I can add, two years later, to my post, A personal note on the death of Andrew Breitbart:

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.

Glenn Reynolds Interview Andrew Breitbart screen shot

While looking for something else, I stumbled up this interview by Prof. Glenn Reynolds and the Insta-Wife of Andrew Breitbart from February 2010.

It may be the best interview of Andrew I’ve ever seen.

And it’s as relevant, if not more so, now as it was back then.

I followed Shirley Sherrod’s lawsuit against Andrew Breitbart and Larry O’Connor over an edited video of Sherrod’s speech to an NAACP chapter very carefully early on, demonstrating beyond doubt that the core of Sherrod’s claim, that she was falsely portrayed in a short video Breitbart released, was not supported by the actual...

As Lee Stranahan notes, it took the NY Times to vindicate Andrew Breitbart against the attacks led by Media Matters:

After two and a half years, it seems Andrew Breitbart has finally been vindicated for his tireless efforts on the Pigford story.

A front page investigative piece from the New York Times has put Pigford back on the map, in a big way: Federal Spigot Flows as Farmers Claim Discrimination.

I just saw a movie review in The Washington Post from last fall regarding Hating Breitbart.

I haven’t seen the film (but Anne did, her review is here), so I can’t comment on the review itself, although it does bear an unmistakably snide tone to it, as expected.

But one part  jumped out at me:
