CNN’s Campbell Brown Refuses to ‘Spin’ in Resignation Letter

Hand it to Campbell Brown for being a straight shooter in her statement announcing that she is stepping down as the host of her CNN show, “Campbell Brown.”

From the statement:

To be clear: this is my decision, and one that I have been thinking about for some time. As for why, I could have said, that I am stepping down to spend more time with my children (which I truly want to do). Or that I am leaving to pursue other opportunities (which I also truly want to do). But I have never had much tolerance for others’ spin, so I can’t imagine trying to stomach my own. The simple fact is that not enough people want to watch my program, and I owe it to myself and to CNN to get out of the way so that CNN can try something else.

Now that’s something you don’t read often. TVNewser has extensive coverage of the news, including background on Brown’s move to CNN three years ago.
