CBS News' Attkisson Describes Stonewalling From White House on Benghazi
Breitbart ^ | May 2, 2013 | Sharyl Attkisson

Posted on 05/03/2013 4:23:44 PM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

"Where there's smoke, there's fire." That's the message CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson says she gets from the constant evasion, stonewalling and flat-out non-response from the Obama Administration and Sttate Department when she pursues questions about the September 11th attacks on the US consulate in Benghazi.

There was a time when CBS was the gold standard in broadcast news.
Attkisson is one reminder of back then...

Sharyl has done an incredible job. If CBS doesn't eventually see the light and give her full rein, she will be able to name her own price at Fox.

She epitomizes real journalism.

She has been an outstanding journalist on TARP and “Fast and Furious” investigative reports. Having her hot on the case is good news. She is not likely to give up against administration stonewalls!

Attkisson is a breath of fresh air in the midst of a sea of darkness.

do we have the permission to add “stinking cesspool” to the sewage. noting that Nancy Pelosi always states time to drain the swamp. Much of DC is a reclaimed land that during the Civil war times was actually swampland that stunk from dead animals and human execrement.

Yes! The MSM is a stinking cesspool of putrid Obama yes-men and yes-women.

I’m astonished SA has survived thus far. I remember her early days on CNN.

Perhaps May eight will find her starting to get some at least partial answers to her questions.

Since Holder is BeHolden to his afro-King, can Congress ask SCOTUS to intervene? Or maybe the Navy SEALs can get justice for Doherty, Smith, and Woods (Okay, Stevens too)?

Victoria Nuland is the State Department spokeswoman. I've noticed this week an “acting deputy spokesman” Patrick Ventrell has been doing most of the press briefings. This includes calling whistle-blower attorney Victoria Toensing a “liar.” Nuland may be avoiding the podium because the documents that Weekly Standard exposed put Nuland in the conspiracy to distort the intel.

Always wondered WHY Attkisson was at CBS and not on FOX.

She's much more compatible with FOX in presenting truthful substantive journalism.

Did she really think that she would get anything but lies from the House of Liars?

Sharyl's a real pro...

And she's proved that again and again while working behind enemy lines.

Jake Tapper (at least before CNN- haven’t watched him lately) and Sharyl Attkisson are two of the non-Fox people who have given it to Obama. I hope she keeps it up.

As I understand it, her contract with CBS is also up for renewal. And CBS is...balking.
