And the War on Women targets Sharyl Attkisson

Here come the Hounds of Leftist Tolerance

I’m sorry but Attkisson has some serious temperament issues.

Let’s be frank: Media Matters is quite openly an activist media watchdog operation. Its brief is to provide a counter-balance to hackish and/or biased rightwing media and to make sure Republicans get plenty of scrutiny.

Yes, let us be frank here. Attkisson is a tremendous reporter and it seems CBS did not appreciate her trying to do her job. And, of course, Mr. Marshall is welcome to have his opinion, but dismissing Attkisson as a crank is pathetic. Of course, we knew these types of attacks were coming, and we know they will increase in severity. That is what the Left tries to do to anyone who dares oppose them.

One year later Team Obama still hiding truth about Benghazi

Never forget that this administration allowed Americans to die in a terror attack, and have been telling lies and hiding ever since!

Wednesday will mark the anniversary of 9-11 Benghazi attack. Sharyl Attkisson is among the few Liberal media journalists working diligently to offer accurate reports on the abuses of the Obama administration, with some hard-hitting reports on Fast & Furious and Benghazi.

Last May, Attkisson published an article in which an Obama administration official offers this quote:

“We’re portrayed by Republicans as either being lying or idiots,” said one Obama administration official who was part of the Benghazi response. “It’s actually closer to us being idiots.”

So not only is the administration official admitting they are “idiots” but there is a subtle parsing of words that essential implies an admission to both attributes playing a roleliarsand idiots

Today Sharyl Attkisson tweets a few updates on Benghazi: Sec. John Kerry told congress that he will not honor any requests to make Benghazi survivors available for questioning.

Despicable, cowardly and typical of this crowd of miscreants.

follow-up Attkisson tweetHouse oversight republicans may issue subpoenas if sec Kerry doesn’t change his mind.

To Hell with “might” subpoena them!

 

Sharyl Attkisson: I think I know who hacked my computers

Via Newsbusters

As NewsBusters previously reported, CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson announced last Friday that her computers had been hacked into “by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions in late 2012.”

On Monday, Attkisson told Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly that she thinks she knows who did it

O’REILLY: And they found out that you indeed were being hacked and made the announcement on Friday. So where does it go from here? I guess CBS could sue somebody, but you got to have somebody who is under suspicion, right? Do you have somebody who is under suspicion?

ATTKISSON: Well, we’re being cautioned, you know, what to say and what not to say at this point.

O’REILLY: By whom?

ATTKISSON: I have attorneys at CBS who are helping us through this. I also have personal counsel.

O’REILLY: And so all your counsel is saying don’t say anything. Do you have the same counsel that the Attorney General has and that Mueller has? No, it’s a joke. Bad joke. Sorry. So all of your counsel is saying don’t accuse anybody right now.

ATTKISSON: Well, they’re just telling us what we can say more than anything right now which is, you know, which you basically heard that there has been an intrusion of the computer. This is not phishing. This is not malware. This is not an ordinary as someone asked me old boyfriend trying to look through my files.

O’REILLY: Okay, this is big?

ATTKISSON: Yeah.

O’REILLY: And, but in order to go after somebody, you’ve got to have a suspicion, and I assume you have a suspicion. You don’t have to tell me. I don’t want to get your lawyers mad but I assume you have a suspicion.

ATTKISSON: Well, I think I know, but I, I’m just not prepared to go into that. So, we’re continuing our investigation. There are multi-facetted, you know, looks at what to do next.

Stay tuned for that possible bombshell folks

 

 

CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was hacked on multiple occasions

Via Gateway Pundit

In May, Sharyl Attkisson announced that her computers were compromised by the Obama administration.

Today CBS News confirmed that Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was hacked by “an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions.”

CBS News announced Friday that correspondent Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was hacked by “an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions,” confirming Attkisson’s previous revelation of the hacking.

CBS News spokeswoman Sonya McNair said that a cybersecurity firm hired by CBS News “has determined through forensic analysis” that “Attkisson’s computer was accessed by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions in late 2012.”

“Evidence suggests this party performed all access remotely using Attkisson’s accounts. While no malicious code was found, forensic analysis revealed an intruder had executed commands that appeared to involve search and exfiltration of data. This party also used sophisticated methods to remove all possible indications of unauthorized activity, and alter system times to cause further confusion. CBS News is taking steps to identify the responsible party and their method of access.”

Of course, Team Obama will know nothing about this, nothing at all.

 

Officials instructed Benghazi hospital to list Stevens as “John Doe”

Via CBS News and Sharyl Attkisson

U.S. officials gave instructions for Benghazi Medical Center to use a “John Doe” pseudonym on the death certificate of Ambassador Christopher Stevens after he died of asphyxiation in the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya. That’s according to a U.S. official speaking on condition of anonymity because the official isn’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The reason for the pseudonym, says the official, was to avoid drawing undue attention to the importance of the victim as Americans rushed to figure out how to recover Stevens’ body and return it to the U.S.

 The official provided the most complete accounting yet of Stevens’ whereabouts and passing in the eight and a half months since his death.

 According to the official, U.S. officials aren’t certain to this day whether Stevens was still alive when local Libyans made cell phone video recordings of his body being carried or dragged from the U.S. mission, possibly by looters. And they still don’t know exactly who transported him to the Benghazi Medical Center where they say medical personnel attempted resuscitation, unsuccessfully, for about 40 minutes (90 minutes, according to published accounts from a Libyan doctor). When pieced together with previously provided information, this is how the search for Stevens is said to have unfolded, according to the official:

 

How many reporters did Team Obama spy on?

CBS journalist Sharyl Attkisson has had “issues” since digging into Fast and Furious

In an appearance on 1210 AM WPHT in Philadelphia on Tuesday, CBS investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, whose investigative work on the Obama White House has frequently provoked hot reactions, revealed the she had discovered evidence that her computer system may have been tampered with.

Attkisson explained her situation to host Chris Stigall and indicated more details would be forthcoming.

“I’m not ready to fully speak publicly about some things that have affected me because I’m trying to be methodical and careful about what I say,” Attkisson said. “But there has been an issue in my house and there has been an issue with my computer that’s gone on for quite a long time that we’re looking into.”

Hope and Change anyone?

 

Things are hard out there for serious journalists like Sharyl Attkisson

Lonely Conservative has more

Emmy award winning reporter Sharyl Attkisson has been battling not only the Obama administration over the coverage of the Benghazi scandal, but also her own bosses at CBS News. This was pointed out by Politico in response to a WaPo piece.

Farhi’s piece places Attkisson in a David-vs.-Goliath narrative, wherein the Obama administration is Goliath: “Attkisson, who holds a third-degree black belt in taekwondo, takes a fighting stance when she feels she’s being stonewalled. Which is exactly what she thinks the White House has done to her on Benghazi,” Farhi writes.

But from where Attkisson is sitting, there are actually two Goliaths, one of which is almost entirely absent from the Post profile.

The second Goliath is CBS News, which has grown increasingly frustrated with Attkisson’s Benghazi campaign. CBS News executives see Attkisson wading dangerously close to advocacy on the issue, network sources have told POLITICO. Attkisson can’t get some of her stories on the air, and is thus left feeling marginalized and underutilized. That, in part, is why Attkisson is in talks to leave CBS ahead of contract, as POLITICO reported in April. (Read More)

Shameful!
