Media Research Center president Brent Bozell issued a statement following Shirley Sherrod's announcement that she will sue Andrew Breitbart for libel:
"Andrew Breitbart is going to be fine. He's done nothing wrong. I wonder if Ms. Sherrod, who is such a champion of transparency, will publicly disclose who is putting her up to this. And I also hope this champion of honesty will stop lying about Fox News. I'm also waiting for Ms. Sherrod to publicly apologize for accusing anyone opposed to nationalized healthcare of being racist. Last time I checked, that was more than half the country."
Of course Bozell is rushing to Breitbart's defense -- if Breitbart is guilty of libel, then Bozell is too. Plus, Bozell has a track record of getting sued for libel and paying seven-figure sums to settle such lawsuits.
Libelers need to stick together, and that's what Bozell is doing by bonding himself to Breitbart.
