Journalist Cambell Brown (formerly of CNN - remember?) has a mind of her own, despite being female and married to a man who is "somebody" in the Romney campaign.  (Imagine that.)

She's so over people who discredit her journalistic pieces based on who her spouse is (i.e., "She's married to a Romney guy"), rather than possible factual and logical weaknesses in the assertions she makes.

Campbell is married to Dan Senor, a Republican strategist working for Mitt Romney.  She argues that her marriage has little impact on her ability to remain objective as a professional journalist.  

Do you agree with Campbell? Do you think her critics would be as vocal if she were a man married to someone working in a partisan job?

Watch Campbell vent on Morning Joe, and then share your opinion in the comments yo.

(And by the way, here's Campbell and Dan's wedding announcement from The New York Times, just because we LOVE reading about weddings.)
