151002 – Update: Predictable and a disgusting example of the “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” alive and well.  There are now 446,000 Google hits on this garbage.

154 google hits at last count with these words:

Obama White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett threw Hillary Clinton under the bus Wednesday at the Washington Ideas Forum, where she told interviewer Andrea Mitchell that the White House gave Clinton guidance forbidding her from using private email.”

Not True. My interpretation is that Jarrett said there was guidance to turn over emails from personal servers, and that’s what Clinton is doing.

Here is the interview. You decide:

After the announcement of Andrew Breitbart’s death, I did wonder about this and Politico has the scoop:

Please go to their full article and read it. If all the kinks are worked out it seems likely that Breitbart’s estate and at least one co-worker will be subject to the continued court proceedings.

If you’re trying to remember who Shirley Sherrod is, I have attached a pdf of an older blog post from JohnSmart, now at:

I liked John’s post, first because he laid out the timeline of events nicely, and because I thought he well represented the traps, pitfalls and honesty in opinion writing.

Can the the tenants of this lawsuit apply elsewhere? You lawyers out there will know, but it seems to me that one person who defames another and gets paid or promised 400 million dollars to do it ought to have made vulnerable the whole business system that allowed this defamation.
