Salmon's son claims interviews canceled after he refuses to smash dad

The gay son of Rep. Matt Salmon said two major networks canceled interviews with him after he refused to bash his father, who is not in favor of same-sex marriage.

According to Mediaite, the younger Salmon said he has a good relationship with his father, despite being on opposite sides of the gay marriage debate.

Salmon claimed that MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell and CNN's Piers Morgan both canceled interviews.

A spokesperson for MSNBC told TPM that "A producer had initial conversations with Matt, like we do with many potential guests every day, but he was never formally booked for the show." A source close to Morgan's CNN show told BuzzFeed: "This isn't accurate. The show simply booked up with other guests on a different topic. Happens all the time in cable news."

Salmon made the claims on Sunday's edition of "Sunday Square Off," a politically-focused show on KPNX-TV.
