“A cyber security firm hired by CBS News has determined through forensic analysis that Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was accessed by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions late in 2012. Evidence suggests this party performed all access remotely using Attkisson’s accounts. While no malicious code was found, forensic analysis revealed an intruder had executed commands that appeared to involve search and exfiltration of data.

This party also used sophisticated methods to remove all possible indications of unauthorized activity, and alter system times to cause further confusion.”

More to come on this.

Government agency - three letters? Known for responding in the affirmative to Verizon’s “can you hear me now” ad?

I hate being cynical but I don't know why I get the impression that the "news" media will not rally around one of their own, but will actually turn on her and say she deserved it because she dared to challenge Dear Leader, their selected boy-king wannabe.

I wonder if this is what it felt like to live in the 1770's.......

Who, then, are the suspects? I think of two....Obama political operation and CBS leadership, itself. CBS, up until about 3 weeks ago, Atkinson was published only once in 5 months....a determination by CBS producers.

To the Managements of CBS and your subservient counterparts at NBCABCCNNMSNBCNYTWAPO:

BHO has drawn a line in the sand and dared you to cross it.

Are you mice or men? Are you passive/obedient/submissive sycophants or do you have even an ounce of true journalism left within you?

Seems unlikely CBS would need to do this. They probably have access to her backups and would get whatever data they wanted off of those a lot easier.

"This party also used sophisticated methods to remove all possible indications of unauthorized activity, and alter system times to cause further confusion.”"

If CBS News' contractor was able to discover the unauthorized access, it would appear that "all possible indications" were not in fact removed.

Puts CBS in a bad spot - they don’t want to hurt the corrupt one(s) they love... Could democrats be using the FBI and Homeland Security for spying on ‘extremists (their political opponents)? Bet your life on it. Even if it’s technically in a different office - we know where the expertise came from...

Were I Sharyl Atkisson, I’d have two computers: one online and one not, with a stick as the go-between. They could know what I’m looking at, but not what I’m saying about it. That would preclude them from having their damage control strategy ready before I published.

I owe you a public apology. You’ve made claims for a long time that your personal computers were being hacked and I rolled my eyes about it. Most people’s computer troubles are of their own making. I assumed that was the case with you, butter. I apologize. This CBS revelation together with the NSA email collection leads me to believe that your computer problems could very well be malicious in nature. So I apologize to you for doubting you and rolling my eyes.

It’s obvious that Obama’s thugs did this. Yet again, if the Bush administration had done this, the Left would be screaming like Banshees about a constitutional crisis. If they don’t start screaming so now, it’s time to protest at their TV station affiliates all over the U.S. to show them that the angry mob is gathering.

I'm sure CBS will find it's some lone hacker from Cincinnati.

they’re too busy with pointless hearings and the acting outraged on TV while obmaa drags this out and carries on stalling and spying.

No one has been arrested, lost their pensions, no criminal charges brought forward because even the FBI is not investigating of which was obvious yesterday.

So what is the GOP to do, Mccain finds another war, others try to get millions if illegals here and now there is talk of bringing Syrians here , thousands of them.

Either states fight back which they are not as they saw AZ come under assault or millions of Americans go to the white house and stay there until Obama and his thugs are dragged out and all of them who is dong this are brought to justice under a new leadership
