Campbell Brown: Election Center

Campbell Brown: No Bias, No Bull

The program adopted the name Campbell Brown: No Bias, No Bull shortly before Election Day 2008. This name is based on the slogan the program adopted soon after Brown became the anchor,[1] to differentiate Brown's program from other editorial-style cable news programs (such as The O'Reilly Factor and Countdown with Keith Olbermann) with whom she was competing.

The show starts with Brown detailing her top story of the night and expressing a "no bull" review, her opinion, and other analysts' opinions as well. CNN anchor Erica Hill delivers "Daily Political Briefing" segment. Contributor Dana Milbank follows with a review of the latest political news.

Finally, a segment called "Dear Mr. President" features young kids who have written letters to President Barack Obama, and would like him to read them. One featured letter was from a 6-year-old boy who aspired to be President. Obama responded by saying, "You can be anything you want to be."

Campbell Brown

Upon Campbell Brown's return from maternity leave on June 1, 2009, the program was renamed to simply Campbell Brown. Along with a revamped opening, the show adopted a 4-person panel set-up, something initially launched in May 2009 when Roland Martin filled in for Campbell (see below).
