CNN Responds To Lawsuit

Yesterday, FishbowlDC first reported the complaints lodged by Citizens United against CNN concerning the cable network’s ‘Broken Government’ program.

We’ve obtained this statement from CNN’s Campbell Brown:

    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.

UPDATE: Citizens United’s David Bossie sent FishbowlDC his response to the above statement by Campbell Brown:

    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.
