Congratulating CBS News for at least having the journalistic integrity to allow Sharyl Attkisson to investigate the Obama Misadministration’s criminal malfeasance regarding Fast & Furious may have been premature. Mark Hemingway reports at the Weekly Standard:
[On Wednesday] I called CBS News in an attempt to interview Attkisson. I was told by CBS News senior vice president of communications Sonya McNair that Attkisson would be unavailable for interviews all week. When I asked why Attkisson would be unavailable, McNair would not say.
I’ve also heard from a producer at another media outlet that has previously booked Attkisson that they tried to book her since she made news with the Laura Ingraham interview [Tuesday]. They were also told that she would be unavailable.
After our initial conversation earlier today, I called McNair back and left a message with her office. I also sent McNair an email asking whether Attkisson’s unavailability has anything to do with reporting that the White House and Justice Department were angry at her. I further asked McNair if the White House or Justice Department contacted CBS News about Attkisson since [Tuesday]. McNair has not responded to my inquiries.
Readers will recall that Attkisson is regarded by the Obama Regime as the only member of the establishment media who won’t be “reasonable” by ignoring the exploding Fast & Furious bombshell. It looks like the CBS News brass is keeping her tied up in the closet with a gag in her mouth. They will let her come out and join her colleagues when she changes her name to Asskisson.
