Sherrod Timeline

From Wizbang:

Let's see how things developed through the day:
(All times Eastern, because that's the time zone for DC, Georgia, and me)

11:18 a.m.: Breitbart releases video.

1:43 p.m.: Story first mentioned on Fox Nation (Fox's online community).

(Unknown time): WCBS-TV posts story on video. (Prior to 4:30 -- see below)

4:30: Drudge links to WCBS-TV story.

5:00: Glenn Beck show starts, no mention of Sherrod.

5:00 (approximately): Bill O'Reilly begins recording his show, near the end plays video and calls for Sherrod's removal.

5:58: Video hits

6:22: First comment posted on article.

6:30 (approximately): USDA announces Sherrod's resignation.

8:49: Bill O'Reilly's denunciation of Sherrod airs.

We also have Sherrod's own account of her dismissal. She doesn't give time stamps, but does cite several things that narrow down the window of time considerably.
