Report: Star Benghazi Reporter Attkisson Exits CBS Due to 'Liberal Bias'
Breitbart.com/Big-Journalism ^ | 3-10-2014 | John Nolte

Posted on 03/10/2014 1:01:03 PM PDT by servo1969

Via her verified Twitter account, CBS investigative news reporter Sharyl Attkisson announced Monday that she has resigned from CBS.

--

I have resigned from CBS. — Sharyl Attkisson (@SharylAttkisson) March 10, 2014

--

Although Politico received no comment from Attkisson other than the split was amicable, the left-wing outlet is reporting that Attkisson left due to the network's "liberal bias." This split is ahead of her contract. "She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her packages on television."

She resigned from CBS to become a journalist.

Let's hope FOX hires her.

I bet she has a Benghazi story in the can that will blow Ubama's socks off.

Look for her to be Vince Fostered ASAP.

I think she’s one of the most beautiful reporters in the world.

I’m betting the first call after her tweet was from Roger Ailes, announcing the contract is ready, whenever she’s ready to sign.

Ms. Attkisson has been in broadcasting a long time. Generally speaking, you don’t quit on the spur of the moment, and you try to have something lined up before you jump.

Very likely that Attkisson and her agent have been talking to Fox for some time. They may wait a few days to announce the deal, but her move to Fox is all-but-inevitable.

FOX: not so much. As long as she is assigned to Palin’s beat.

Really, she ought to get picked up by Rush and/or Levin to prove what a “real” journalist can accomplish.

Ooo, Ooo. Brietbart could use a reporter with connections, chops, and tenacity.

There was a time when CBS was the gold standard in broadcast news.
That came to an end sometime in the early/mid 1950s.

Yep.

Something to do with “Uncle Walter”, I suspect.

Attkisson is the first “mainstream” reporter to pick up the fast and furious gun-running story.

If you're into reading between the lines as I am, I think it's worth noting that the book she's writing will be published by News Corp., owner of Fox News. I think the chances of her ending up in Ailes's news harem are pretty good.

If she got an early out on her contract with CBS then it is highly likely she had to agree to a non compete clause. Typically that would be at least six months or a year before going to work for a competitor.

While I think SA is hot, and have liked her, she is tainted by being there way tooooo long. She knew better long before this incident. Good riddance. She’s still a lefty at heart.

Her resignation fits with the arrogance Scott Pelley has displayed to others in the DC newsroom at CBS.

Ditto the Moonves crud that runs CBS; pure a$$holes.

It is sad to learn from you that free will does not exist and people cannot change.

I am, however, very impressed at your ability to discern with absolute certainty the thoughts and opinions of others from great distances.

I wonder if a guest-host slot on Rush, or having her own talk show, would be considered “competition”. Alternately, she could use the time to write a book, or just vacation.

It still annoys me to no end that people get up and go to work each day to create the wealth that allows Roger Ailes to pay Juan Williams his couple million.

Strong, intelligent, and beautiful woman. I’m amazed she stayed at CBS as long as she did.

This isn’t so much liberal bias (which is present, certainly), but pro Obama bias.
