Shirley Sherrod has a simple answer for the Fox News producers begging her for an interview: Too late.
"I will not give Fox an interview, period. They had their chance to get the truth, and they were not interested," Sherrod told the National Association of Black Journalists' convention in San Diego, according to Richard Prince of the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education.
Sherrod praised CNN and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's coverage of her story, Prince reports, but said Fox came to the story determined to get her fired. "I don't know all that Fox was doing behind the scenes to get the effect they were looking for," she said during a question-and-answer segment at the convention.
