Campbell Brown to NAACP: ‘You’re the Ones to Blame Here’


CNN’s Campbell Brown did not hold back Tuesday night in her criticism of the NAACP’s response to the Shirley Sherrod video controversy. Brown told NAACP vice-president Hilary Shelton that the organization “allowed [itself] to be snookered” by Andrew Breitbart and other conservatives who jumped on the initial video clip of Sherrod’s speech. (After initially denouncing the speech, the NAACP has since changed its stance.) “You’re the ones to blame here because you had the tape in your possession and you could have easily watched it and known the full context of her remarks,” she says.
