Robin Carnahan and Roy Blunt.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Democrat Robin Carnahan has pulled an ad from her Senate campaign website after being sued for copyright infringement by Fox News Network.
Carnahan spokesman Linden Zakula defended the ad Thursday and said the campaign believes it complies with the law. Although it was pulled from the Internet, he said the ad will remain on TV.
The ad includes a clip from an 2006 interview by Fox News journalist Christopher Wallace with Republican Congressman Roy Blunt, who is Carnahan's opponent in the Senate race. In it, Wallace cites Blunt's ties to lobbyists and asks whether he's the right man to lead a reform effort.
A federal lawsuit filed Wednesday by Fox News claims copyright infringement and the misuse of Wallace's image.
