    Shirley Sherrod, the USDA official who was forced to resign over accusations of racism, dominated a lot of the news this week.  The Sherrod story comes on the heels of last week’s  NAACP/Tea Party fight also over accusations of racism.  In our national news roundtable this week, we’ll look at what these case tell us about race relations in America and the state of the news media. .    We’ll also touch on the New Black Panthers, Palin and the ground zero mosque, and the Journolist email scandal.  Our guests are TERENCE SAMUEL, editor-at-large at The Root.com and GREG MITCHELL who writes the Media Fix blog for The Nation Magazine.
