Lanny Breuer on line 1.
'We will never co-operate with Frontline in the future.'
Hilarious. Justice Department gets defensive.
Not a huge story but still incredibly satisfying for molecular-level Wall Street revenge seekers. A win is a win except in the Harbaugh family, and this is a victory for our side. We can celebrate the fact that the Justice Department contacted Frontline producers last week after 'The Untouchables' aired Tuesday night and and threatened to blackball the award-winning PBS show.
You read that right. And they called it a 'hit piece' for good measure. The truth hurts and the knives come out.
FRONTLINE: Some viewers have wondered about whether or how the Justice Department hasresponded to the film. Any word?
Martin Smith: Well, the Justice Department called and said they thought it was a hit piece, that I came with an agenda and that they will never co-operate with us in the future.
