A documentary slamming Colorado liberals, and Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, can be aired without disclosing its backers, a federal appeals court in Denver ruled 3-0 in a decision released Tuesday.

Citizens United, the conservative group that won the federal landmark case about campaign finance disclosure in 2010, made the film in question, “Rocky Mountain Heist.” Citizens United on Tuesday said the film “explores the liberal takeover” of a once- reliable red state.

The organization argued its documentary should be considered part of the protected free press, such as print or TV news, which does not have to disclose its sources of income.
