Sharyl Attkisson Resigns From CBS … Had Grown Frustrated With the Network’s Liberal Bias

 

WHAT, CBS HAS A LIBERAL BIAS … SAY IT ISN’T SO!!!

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has resigned from CBS News after two decades at the network.  As reported at The Politico, Attkisson had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias, an outsize influence by the network’s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting. What, you mean there is a liberal bias in the MSM and a lack of investigative journalism, really? Didn’t she get the CBS memo that there was to be no investigative reporting on Barack Obama or Democrats that would go against MSM/Obama propaganda? Hmm, remember when her computer was hacked? But that was just a coincidence.

As Thomas Jefferson to Lafayette, 1823, “The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is necessary, to keep the waters pure.”

Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias, an outsize influence by the network’s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt that her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

At the same time, Attkisson’s reporting on the Obama administration, which some staffers characterized as agenda-driven, had led network executives to doubt the impartiality of her reporting. She is currently at work on a book — tentatively titled “Stonewalled: One Reporter’s Fight for Truth in Obama’s Washington” — that addresses the challenges of reporting critically on the administration.

Feeling increasingly stymied and marginalized at the network, Attkisson began talking to CBS News President David Rhodes as early as last April about getting out of her contract. Those negotiations intensified in recent weeks, and her request was finally honored on Monday.

Newsbusters reminds us that Sharyl Attkisson kept the spotlight on Obama scandals like Benghazi and Fast and Furious. That must have endeared her to the liberal suits at CBS.

Sharyl Attkisson, whose coverage of the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal won CBS Evening News an Edward R. Murrow Award in 2012, and also provided hard-hitting reporting on the September 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, announced her sudden departure from CBS on Monday afternoon in a post on Twitter: “I have resigned from CBS.”

It is a shame that an accomplished investigative correspondent like Sharyl Attkisson would cited liberal bias at the network and an insufficient dedication to investigative journalism as a means as to why she would have to leave a network. The purpose of the media is to hold all accountable, no matter what political party they may lean toward. The PJ Tatler opines, but don’t worry, Attkisson won’t have a problem finding a job. Expect her reports to show up on Fox News eventually.

      hats off to Sharyl Attkisson for seeking the truth and reporting it. my wife has been a nurse for the same company for 20 years. she is now being railroaded into part time with her company stating that it is completely due to obamacare.
      they are hiring nurses fresh out of school so they can control and bully them into practicing obamacare medicine and it is completely dangerous.
      the doctor over this clinic was told that he would no longer be allowed to practice medicine ans he had been taught but to herd patients through like so many cattle with little to no care.
      he promptly turned in his notice as have most of the senior employees at this company.
