Updated with video: "Howard Dean Calls Fox News 'Absolutely Racist' For Handling Of Shirley Sherrod Controversy"

UPDATE: As promised, scroll down for video (07:19).

Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean took direct aim at Fox News for it's involvement in the Shirley Sherrod racism flap, calling their coverage "absolutely racist."

Dean, the former Democratic National Committee chairman, offered his candid assessment in an appearance on "Fox News Sunday" in which he criticized the cable network for being complicit in the controversy.

"Fox News did something that was absolutely racist," Dean said. "They had an obligation to find out what was really in the clip. They had been pushing a theme of black racism with this phony Black Panther crap and this business and this Sotomayor and all this other stuff." MORE...
Howie P.S.: Certainly not a startling revelation, but I can't help having admiration for Howard's "direct aim." Rest assured that if I ever locate this video, it will appear here.
