Attkisson says that CBS these questions to the White House back in October. She tweeted them a month ago, promising an update. Tonight’s update deals both with the questions that have been answered and those that have not.

If this had happened under Bush with the same administration response, Bush would have been impeached and removed from office by now. The media would have been leading the charge with non-stop excoriation.

There was a time, albeit long ago, when CBS was the gold standard in broadcast news gathering. It is good to see this flame has not died out completely.

I’m tired of “if this had happened under Bush” remarks. Does no good. Until we devise a way to reach individuals in a meaningful way we are on the way to a 100% Dem federal government for the next 40 years.

Wow. The WH might threaten her, indeed.

I love her style..."UNANSWERED"....repeatedly.

One of my faves of this tweet stream..

Let's be real: if enough people in the public, media and Congress don't ask, then any Administration has the option to not answer.

About a year into his Presidency I predicted the media would start to turn on Obama.

The media is both profit and pride driven. A depressed economy hurts profits and no matter how much they claim to be all about that socialist fluff, in the end, they want to keep their salaries. In regards to pride, there is a point where everyone feels, except may be the Krissy Matthews types, that they can’t keep their lips on that ass any longer.

I was off by a few years.. too bad it didn’t happen before the election.

One of her questions is one I would like to know; when Hillery told one of the victim’s famil that they were going to arrest the video, just what was going to be the charge? What happens to people that make videos the WH dowan’t like?

Answer per Attkisson:

“Secy Clinton testified Pres. Obama didn’t speak to her that night or throughout the attacks.”

Didn’t we just hear from the White House that Barry called Hilarious at 10:00 PM? That was right before she came out with the first utterance of the “it was the video” talking points, IIRC.

Hillary Clinton is THE original source of the 'video did it' excuse for Benghazi, Cairo and all the rest of the embassy riots around the world. Hillary did it!

US Embassy in Cairo quietly deletes its ‘we stand by our condemnation’ tweet; Update: More deleted tweets!

Here is Hillary pushing it again on Sept. 13th.

Clinton: Anti-Islam Video 'Disgusting' (video 2:56)

Here is a 'senior administration official' trying to distance 0bamugabe from Hillary's f-up and at the same time admitting by inference that she was the source of the 'video did it' meme.

Senior administration official: The Cairo embassy’s statement does not reflect the view of the U.S. government; Update: Romney calls embassy statement “disgraceful”

posted at 10:34 pm on September 11, 2012 by Allahpundit

The White House is disavowing a statement from their own Cairo embassy that apologized for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.

“The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,” a senior administration official told POLITICO…

“Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a Tuesday statement.

And here 0bamugabe and Hillary work together to try to prop up her 'video did it' nonsense and spread it even further.

Nope, she never said anything about a 'video.'

Why doesn’t anyone on either right or left, ask - what the hell is going on in Libya now?

Its not a country any longer, so who runs the factions? which ones are Islamists? How many citizens are starving? Where is all their oil-money going? Who controls production? Where did all of Gaddafi’s money and weapons go?

The few who know aren’t telling, and the media do not care

Sharyl Attkisson is one of the few and I mean FEW in the state run media I actually have respect for..she goes after the truth.

Sharyl Attkisson on Twitter ^ routinely runs streams of news bytes in her Twitter Stream. As you've noted, Sarah, she is one of the few that does - carefully - put the truth out on everything she does. She's also going after the Vaccine Industries and Boeing, among others, and their collusions with the FedGov agencies that are supposed to be regulating them for our safety.

She is also the only reporter that I've seen keeping the heat on the "Fast and Furious" FedGov gun-running debacle, that killed two Federal agents and hundreds of Mexican Nationals from guns the BATF and FBI purposely let get sent across the border against the protestations of the FFL Dealers.

Sharyl has her own page at CBS with her work at Sharyl Attkisson, Investigative Correspondent ^:

We need a hundred more just as strong and committed to truth in the MSM!
