See the ad FOX News is suing Robin Carnahan over, which she’s keeping on the air.

A couple days ago, FOX News contributor Sarah Palin told GOP/Teabagger/Anti-masturbation crusader Christine O’Donnell “speak through FOX News.” That’s what most GOPers do. FOX is GOP TV.

That same FOX is suing Democratic Senate candidate Robin Carnahan for running this ad. FOX claims Robin has hurt poor, delicate Chris Wallace’s feelings. And, even better, in its complaint, FOX claims Robin “compromis[ed] its apparent objectivity.” Um, as if.

Today, Robin sent out this statement:

“We’re not backing down. We’re fighting this lawsuit. And nobody – not Fox News, and certainly not Congressman Blunt – is going to stop my campaign from telling the truth and holding Congressman Blunt accountable for his record. We’re going to keep showing this ad on TV and online because we believe Missourians deserve to hear the truth.”

The campaign’s press release included this, too:

The use of news clips is nothing new in campaign ads. In fact, even Congressman Blunt uses campaign videos that include footage from a variety of cable news networks including Fox News. Fox’s unprecedented move, and its past support for Congressman Blunt, has already raised questions about the motives behind the lawsuit. Fox’s parent company, News Corp, has given nearly $10,000 to Congressman Blunt’s campaign committee.

FOX really upped the ante and made gave this ad even more attention — so here it is:

Robin isn’t backing down. She kept this air on the ad, has it on her site and provided an embed code.

We have an ActBlue page for Robin here. She’s fighting Roy Blunt, Karl Rove, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and, now, FOX News.
