CNN's Brown Responds to Lawsuit Threat from Conservative Group

CNN’s Campbell Brown has responded to conservative group Citizens United, which last week threatened to sue the network after being described in a report, presented by Ms. Brown, as a “fringe militia.”

In a statement to the blog Fishbowl DC, Ms. Brown says:

    I’m glad that this documentary is generating discussion among those that it portrayed – “the passionate partisans on the left and right” We presented a balanced and entertaining look at how various groups of all political persuasions try to influence the process. I am both thrilled with the documentary and the fact that more than million people tuned in.

To which Citizens United’s David Bossie responds with his own statement:

I am sorry to see Campbell Brown try to defend her irresponsible and indefensible reporting. To call somebody part of a “fringe militia” when that person is neither fringe nor militia, nor anything approaching such a characterization, is defamatory and unprofessional. We will have more to say on this in the coming week.

We look forward to it.
