(Newser) Shirley Sherrod won't be talking to the folks at Fox News about the out-of-context video that got her fired. "I will not give Fox an interview, period," she told the National Association of Black Journalists yesterday. "They had their chance to get the truth, and they were not interested." Sherrod, who says she will sue Andrew Breitbart over the video, says the conservative commentator and the network deliberately portrayed her as a bigot, reports the Maynard Institute.

"I saw what Fox did and what Breitbart did. I knew it was racism, and nobody had to tell me that," she says. Click here to read more about Sherrod's firing and the political fallout. (And, to find out why Breitbart calls himself 'Public Enemy No.1, click here.)
