CBS News Locks Sharyl Attkisson in the Closet

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.

Sharyl Attkisson before the brass packed her away.

    What a difference an administration makes…

    I recall several times when President Bush asked various media outlets to delay or cancel publication of issues of national security. In almost all cases, the outlets published the information and blamed Bush for the fall-out.

    Here we have an Administration that has a problem with their own lies and possibly treasonous behaviour being outted, so they demand the reporting be stopped. And the media outlet complies.

    Any Liberal that talks about the supposed bias of FoxNews from now on will get this story crammed down their throat!

    Can we get a Clean-Up here for the CRAP that Let Freedom Ring has left?

    LFR, there is an Open Thread here for a reason. STOP spamming every thread with your BS!

    Check your headline. I don’t think you mean “CNS News”.

    I’m guessing they’re waiting (hoping) to get the whole story under the rug & down the memory hole before they give her a pink slip. Watch for it.

  8. Hail The Amberlamps! says:

    They could give her an anchor position, hoist the flag and salute reciting a loyalty oath against Marxism and I wouldn’t trust the vermin at Dan Rather’s network.

    IIRC, Cheryl made her start in Dallas as a religion reporter for one of the three local networks. Not sure when she started worshipping Satan to get the NYC gig, but she’s finding out what it means to dance with the devil.

    And I wonder what the odds are that they got a call from the White House offering a free trip to Outer Mongolia and recision of their press passes?

    Of course the management goons immediately fell on their faces apologizing for angering Teh Won.

    Someone at Fox get this woman a job, a car, and a microphone and turn her loose. We need more ‘reporters’ and a whole lot fewer ‘journalists’.

  11. TexasDoc says:

    So they failed to spike the story so they are spiking the reporter? Ordering her to clam up will only verify what most of us already know about CBS and just how far in the tank they are for Zero.

  12. gordo says:

    I nearly spewed my iced tea all over the screen!

    giving her the “Foster” treatment?
    maybe a little polonium in her Grape Nuts?
    Falling out of an upstairs window?

    Maybe Obama’s star chamber will put out a kill order.

    Ms. Attkisson was on O’Reilly this evening. Odd interview. Bill described Laura Ingraham’s assertions about the administration guy cussing Attkisson out, then asked her “Did he really curse at you?” and she went off on a tangent about how he’s a really good guy… O’Reilly brought the interview back to the swearing-at-her question again, and she said essentially “It happened as you describe it, Bill” without giving details, or truly confirming the event, or anything. Again: weird interview.

    I’m going to guess that she had been given STERN! instructions to “not go there” if she wanted to keep her job. Or something.

    Its OK Sharyl. As a person associated with being on the liberals least liked list (Nappys domestic terrorist manifesto, various trolls anti-gay lists, anti-corporation rolls, etc) I for one welcome you into the closet of people liberals hate. Also because the closet is kinda small and your not ugly (I would never have extended this offer to Helen Thomas (my standards my be low, but I still have them)). Sharyl do you want to play Seven minutes in Heaven?

    if they silenced her, it didnt work for long because Sharyl was on Bill OReilly’s show last night talking about Fast and Furious and Wide Receiver.

    If CBS Silences Attkisson, then they become part of the problem of kissing the rear end of this administration.

    And for the punk in the White House Communication Office that yelled and cussed at her, he needs to be slapped. Im sure his mother didnt raise him to disrespect a woman like that

    I see…

    “Reasonable”…the new word for ‘Obey’?

    So I guess, Reasonable = do what we want.
    And anything else is = Unreasonable.

    Some guy who is charged with date rape can now say “She was being Unreasonable”…and get away with it.
