Chuck Todd interviewed the US Chamber of Commerce's Vice President Bruce Josten on MSNBC and asked him about Think Progress' reporting on their foreign donations and Josten's response basically came down to three items. One, you can't trust the reporting by Think Progress because they're a liberal organization that wants to attack them. They should not have to disclose who is donating them because those groups might have to put up with protesters. And they should not be held accountable to the public for their actions.

Think Progress posted a response to Mr. Josten's interview today. Go on over there and read the whole thing.
