• CNN Host Crosses Line In Hostile Interview Of Planned Parenthood Video Activist

    CNN’s New Day host Alisyn Camerota asked the activist behind the undercover Planned Parenthood videos to respond to criticism that he was a “violent extremist.”

    “Your critics– critics of your organization I should say– say that you’re not journalists as you purport to be on your website, but rather you’re violent extremists,” Camerota said to Center for Medicial Progress’ David Daleiden.

    “They say that you are operating under the guise of investigative reporting, but really you’re trying to shut down all Planned Parenthoods and women’s access to things like birth control and other services they provide,” she continued. “Do you have any ties to Operation Rescue?”

    “First, number one, I’m not a violent person and I never have been and I never will be,” Daleiden replied.“Troy Newman is one of the board members for the Center for Medical Progress. And Troy Newman is the president of Operation Rescue.”

    “Operation Rescue does have a history of threatening violence against clinics.” Camerota interjected.

    “I don’t think that’s true at all,” he responded. “You’d have to talk to Troy specifically about the full history of Operation Rescue and some of those details. But I don’t think that’s a fair characterization at all.”
