ERICKSON: For years, it's been very easy to label a conservative a racist for disagreeing with the left and have them driven from the stage. Unfortunately, Shirley Sherrod today has become a victim of that.

KING: But is she a victim because an angry activist on the right took her out of context or didn't at least give her time and fairness? Two wrongs don't make a right.

ERICKSON: Oh, absolutely. I think that she was taken out of context. Two wrongs don't make a right. But, again, this is what happens routinely by the left to the right.
