Roundup & Recap: The Week

Shirley_1684110c Here are some of the stories I covered in the past seven days:

The whiplash you witnessed was the White House, Tom Vilsack, much of the media, Bill O’Reilly and assorted others at Fox News doing a big about-face in the case of Shirley Sherrod, one of the more memorable cases of a figure thrust into the vortex and still showing grace. Andrew Breitbart, who initiated the story by posting the truncated YouTube clips, was unrepentant, but he’s certainly not slinking away.

There are growing signs of some kind of compromise on net neutrality, while some die-hard Obama-ites are upset that Dan Choi got his discharge papers.

 
Also:
PBS’s ombudsman found fault with a George Shultz documentary’s credibility; Hollywood still loves the Democrats, even if their leadership is in peril; Barbara Boxer is tapping show biz (again); Barney Frank gave Kathy Griffin a tsk tsk; and the Obamas saluted Broadway at the White House.

…another journalism legend passed on, the great Daniel Schorr.

Finally, for Mary Poppins fans, here’s one shot (right) that was posted recently on the White House Flickr site, Obama and Dick Van Dyke at a Ford’s Theatre reception.
