Lara Logan, Sharyl Attkisson, Judith Miller — all esteemed investigative reporters.
Media Matters for America is crying foul over allegations by former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson that the liberal media watchdog was paid to target her.
Former CBS newswoman Sharyl Attkisson, who recently parted ways with her broadcast bureau and began outing the former employer over bias about "Fast & Furious" reports, now says she was targeted by the leftist group Media Matters.
The Obama White House, for all its talk about openness and transparency, is hardly in the business of promoting openness and transparency in government — and is way worse when it comes to clamping down on the media than previous administrations, Sharyl Attkisson said.
Sharyl Attkisson, the former CBS investigative journalist who spent the lead-up to her recent resignation dogging the White House on Benghazi, made clear in a series of tweets that ex-CIA deputy director Michael Morell didn't clarify much during his Wednesday testimony on Capitol Hill.
Chatter about climate change over a nice cup of coffee? Indeed, Senate Democrats have organized a cozy all-night talkathon that will last Monday night into Tuesday at the U.S. Capitol, meant to "wake up Congress to the danger of climate change."
CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has announced her resignation after being employed by the network for more than two decades.
CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson's computer was compromised via "sophisticated methods" that included a concerted attempt to cover up hacking tracks, a cyber security firm found on Friday.
And she said the White House has been steadily clamping down on the media's watchdog abilities for years.
"There is pressure coming to bear on journalists for just doing their job in ways that have never come to bear before," she said, The Blaze reported. "Now there've always been tensions. ... But it is particularly aggressive under the Obama administration, and I think it's a campaign that's very well organized, that's designed to have sort of a chilling effect and to some degree has been somewhat successful in getting broadcast producers who don't really want to deal with the headache of it."
