    The latest CDC update on the current outbreak of the polio-like Enterovirus D-68 states that it has now been detected “in specimens from seven patients who died and had samples submitted for testing. Unlike Ebola, CDC is not publicly addressing the spread of EV-D68 in television interview or telephone briefings. According to the latest update from CDC, at least 796 people in 46 states have been sickened with the respiratory illness that can cause paralysis from mid-August through October 16. The outbreak is likely more widespread than reported since some states are not lab testing all respiratory illnesses to confirm....

At least five children infected with the respiratory illness known enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) have died in the U.S. in the past month. The latest confirmed victim was a four-year-old New Jersey boy, Eli Waller. He died at home on September 25. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) confirmed the cause of death Friday night. But health officials say they have no idea how he contracted the virus. A health official says Eli was “asymptomatic and fine” when he went to bed but died...

    The unexpected resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder follows a series of court rulings against his Department of Justice over its failure to produce documents related to the government’s “Fast and Furious” firearms operation. Holder also has come under increasing congressional criticism for a tepid investigation of evidence that IRS officials deliberately targeted tea party and other conservative groups for greater scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status. Eric Holder leaves a Justice Department facing numerous controversies and negative court rulings. Calling the government’s arguments for “even more time … unconvincing,” a federal judge this week refused to grant Holder’s...

That all questions regarding Benghazi have not been answered and new ones have in fact arisen was shown by the recent revelation by former Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell to reporter Sharyl Attkisson. Maxwell said he witnessed State Department personnel sifting through stacks of documents and emails to filter out those that would put the department in a bad light before turning any over...

It’s taken more than 13 years. U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth had ordered the EPA on Jan. 19, 2001, at the end of the Clinton administration, to preserve all documents relevant to a Freedom of Information Act request by...

Under oath before the House Ways and Means Committee, Koskinen restated what Congress had been told privately: that emails of Lerner and six other relevant IRS officials have been irretrievably lost because of crashes of their hard drives and servers. Koskinen defended not telling Congress in numerous previous appearances about the email losses. In those appearances, he...

    Friday’s revelation that the IRS “lost” Lois Lerner’s emails in a computer crash came ten months after Congress first requested them and seven months after they were first subpoenaed by the House Oversight Committee. But what IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testified about the emails at a hearing in March appears to be at odds with his agency’s newer reported claims that the emails are irretrievable. Under questioning by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) on the House Oversight Committee, Koskinen said IRS emails “get taken off and stored in servers.” That was part of the reason, he said, it was so difficult...

    In a Friday interview with talk radio host Chris Stigall, former-CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson explained how the White House can sometimes get questions in advance of the daily briefing. When a reporter asks the White House something, "they will [sometimes] be told ‘ask that at the briefing and we’ll answer it,’" Attkisson explained, adding, "They [The White House] want to answer it in front of everybody. They do know it’s coming and they’ll call on you." Attkisson was commenting on a Thursday story about White House Spokesman Jay Carney allegedly telling a reporter (Carney denied saying this) that he...

    Fresh off her resignation from CBS News, journalist Sharyl Attkisson’s website dedicated to seeking the truth about the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal, Benghazi, Obamacare and other important issues is gaining national attention. Many have speculated why Attkisson, a highly successful reporter, left one of the largest news organizations in the world. The bold statement on the homepage of her website, SharylAttkisson.com, might provide a little insight: “Resisting undue corporate, political and other special interests.” The simplistic website features individual tabs for stories relating to Fast and Furious scandal, Benghazi, Healthcare.gov, “Medical & Vaccines” and “Green Energy Going Red.” The...

    CBS News has lost its strongest claim to be a fair and non-partisan news source with the departure of Sharyl Attkisson from the network. The award-winning reporter has been squeezed-out because of her reporting on investigative themes inconvenient to the Obama administration, including Fast and Furious and the Benghazi Scandal – two incidents in which United States government officials lost their lives. In 2013, her total air time on the CBS Evening News was a mere 53 minutes, a third of her air time prior to the Obama administration, when she reported on scandals involving Republicans. In the words of...

    By Sharyl Attkisson CBS NewsJanuary 8, 2014, 5: 45 PM U.S. Benghazi compound lease renewed without security Updated 7:25 p.m. ETThe State Department renewed the lease for the U.S. compound in Benghazi two months before the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks without requiring the facility to meet normal security standards.

    (CBS News) WASHINGTON -- CBS News has been digging into the cause of the delays in preparing the website for the government's health insurance market and has learned was a major interruption in the months before President Obama's re-election. At the height of the 2012 presidential election campaign, it was crunch time for the Obama administration to release key instructions so contractors could work toward the October 2013 deadline. But a Health and Human Services official who was closely involved tells CBS News that in late summer, the administration stopped issuing proposed rules for the Affordable Health Care Act until...

    September 10, 2013 Attkisson: Kerry Won’t Make Benghazi Survivors Available for Congressional Testimony Bryan Preston The administration what wants America to trust it on Syria is continuing its cover-up of Benghazi. CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson posted this on Facebook this afternoon. Secretary of State John Kerry has told House Oversight Committee he will not comply with Republican requests to make Benghazi survivors available for interviews by Congress. Chairman Issa R-CA says if Kerry doesn’t change his mind, there could be subpoenas. There is only one reason to prevent Americans from testifying: they have something to say that Kerry and Obama...

    Marine Corps Col. George Bristol was in a key position in the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) chain of command the night of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. As such, he's high on the list of people that some Republican members of Congress want to interview. But they don't know where he is and the Pentagon isn't telling.

    O'REILLY: "Personal Story" segment tonight. CBS News announced on Friday that Investigative Correspondent Sharyl Attkisson's computer was hacked into late last year. This, combined with the James Rosen situation here at Fox News and the A.P. snooping, causing a lot of concern. With us now on a Factor Cable Exclusive is Ms. Attkisson. So, when did you know that somebody was messing with your computer. SHARYL ATTKISSON, INVESTIGATIVE CORRESPONDENT, CBS NEWS: Well, there were signs probably around 2011 but I don't think I recognized exactly what was going on until perhaps the fall of last year when so many things...
