Breitbart’s Videos of Shirley Sherrod were NOT EDITED…They were True EXCERPTS

LEFTISTS STILL SMEARING ANDREW BREITBART
In July 2010, Andrew Breitbart published some video clips showing former USDA official Shirley Sherrod making controversial remarks regarding race and class in a speech before the NAACP. Liberals claimed that Breitbart had selectively edited (or doctored) her comments. The liberal media are still pushing this lie about Andrew Breitbart. They want people to think that Breitbart cut and rearranged Sherrod’s remarks to present her as a racist.

However, the NAACP full video proved that Breitbart videos clips were CONTINUOUS UNEDITED EXCERPTS of Shirley Sherrod’s speech. Breitbart did not edit (cut or rearrange) Sherrod’s remarks. He did not falsely represent Shirley Sherrod. Breitbart’s first video even included Sherrod’s so-called redemption or revelation (that it is not about blacks vs. whites). He did not take her out of context.

Here are the facts: Videos and transcripts prove Breitbart did NOT edit Sherrod’s remarks:
