Tonight, CNN announced that John McCain had pulled out of a Larry King interview on that network because of the Campbell Brown "interview." (see earlier posts). Wolf Blitzer stated that he did not think Brown had crossed the line, and Brown defended herself, saying she was just asking tough questions. Then, CNN aired a portion of the interview.
Key word: Portion.
In completely dishonest fashion, the network only reran the portion of the interview in which Brown had interrogated McCain's spokesman about Palin's experience. Now, that part of the interview is also obnoxious (she continually interrupts the spokesman, for example, and her contemptuous facial expressions are priceless). However, this selective rerun gave viewers the wrong impression that the McCain camp was just a little oversensitive about questions relating to Palin's experience.
The really offensive part of the Brown interview - exorcised from tonight's discussion completely on CNN - was the portion in which she pressed McCain's spokesman to answer whether Palin should be running for VP with a pregnant daughter.
Campbell Brown needs to answer why this question was relevant or fair.
