When Will Breitbart Apologize?

More

"I think she should get her job back. I think she's owed apologies from pretty much everyone, including my good friend Andrew Breitbart. I generally think Andrew is on the side of the angels and a great champion of the cause. He says he received the video in its edited form and I believe him. But the relevant question is, Would he have done the same thing over again if he had seen the full video from the outset? I'd like to think he wouldn't have. Because to knowingly turn this woman into a racist in order to fight fire with fire with the NAACP is unacceptable," - Jonah Goldberg, NRO.

Will Breitbart apologize? Can he apologize? Is there a record of him ever apologizing for anything? Jonah also seems to me to be dead-on with this point:

I think this episode demonstrates that this White House is a much more tightly wound outfit than it lets on in public. The rapid-response firing suggests a level of fear over Glenn Beck and Fox that speaks volumes.

Yes, some of us backed Obama because he didn't, like Clinton, reek of fear in the face of every rightwing attack. How wrong we were.
