Perhaps wanting to get in on the Pickens-Kerry bet, CNN’s Campbell Brown, in a program about negative advertising, asserted “Naval records and eyewitness accounts by other sailors contradicted just about every claim the swift boat vets made.” Alas, Brown did not elaborate as to which claims had been contradicted.
Brown is working hard to win influence and make friends across the political spectrum. The same program has also been criticized by Media Matters because Brown used the phrase “American insurgents” to describe MoveOn.org.
UPDATE: Rob Bluey and Quin Hillyer weigh in on the show.
