Citizens United Lawyers Up in Battle With CNN

According to Matt Drudge, Citizens United has retained legal counsel as part of its ongoing spat with CNN, after a report presented by Campbell Brown referred to the conservative group as a “fringe militia.” Says the group:

CU through counsel will seek a formal apology and public retraction of those statements, and for calling Bossie a ‘dirty trickster.’ If no retraction is forthcoming, CU will then bring legal action to hold CNN accountable for these and other misrepresented facts. These baseless allegations were a disservice to CU and its 500,000 members, CNN and its audience, and to general principles of responsible, fact-based journalism.
