Conservative Group Threatens to Sue CNN Over Campaign Piece

Looks like Campbell Brown’s first in-depth report for CNN has sparked some controversy. Last night, Ms. Brown presented a lengthy piece on political dirty tricksters, which included interviews and scenes with members of the conservative group Citizens United.

Now, FishBowlDC has obtained an email sent by Citizens United, which calls the report "a highly unprofessional hit piece." The group complains, among things, about being labelled in the piece a "fringe militia", and warns that if that characterization isn’t retracted, it’ll consider legal action.

Not exactly what Jon Klein was hoping for when he signed Ms. Brown.
