One month ago. long-time investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson left CBS amid rumors that she had grown frustrated with the network stifling her investigations. Thursday night on Bill O' Reilly's Fox News program she confirmed those rumors. "There is unprecedented, I believe, influence on the media, not just the news, but the images you see everywhere. By well-orchestrated and financed campaign of special interests, political interests and corporations. I think all of that comes into play."
After introducing his guest, O'Reilly asked Attkisson about her investigation into the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal.
The former CBS reporter asserted that she began to make inroads into the story but had to drop it:
Attkisson: I found out that we had to quit pursuing the story more or less due to lack of interest well before we found answers to a lot of questions. Including what about all the other cases besides the one you know as Fast and Furious that were also using similar strategies to transfer weapons down to Mexico. And how did this, if at all, play into a strategy the United States may be using to draw support or give support towards one of the cartels in Mexico against one of the others much like they had done in Columbia and other places.
O'Reilly: Playing one off against the other. You said something interesting that you had to abandon the story for lack of interest. Can you clarify that?

Watched the teaser for CBS 60 Minutes After the Masters. Sure enough, the lead double segment on the Pope somehow had to include Oblamer....CLICK....NO OBLAMER - NONE OF THE TIME!
:: successful in getting broadcast producers who dont really want to deal with the headache of it ::
The AMerican people need to press this concept. Again, the “chicken little” cry of “ray-ciss” appears.
These “broadcast producers” need to resign!
Barry can blackmail all the heads of the news agencies.
We’ve known for a long time that CBS is 100% in the tank for the socialists. They are willing to lie for their buddies.
Let Republicanprofessor know if you want on or off this ping list.
Ailes should hire her as WH correspondent. I’d love to see her sitting on the front row, staring down Short-pants Carney....

Tell us more, Attkisson, tell us more.
"Obama's Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communication & CBS News President David Rhodes brother!"
Correct! ...next question.
Bill O’Reilly was on Jesse Jackson’s financial fraud for a long time. Then one day he just shut up. I’m sure he knows exactly what Ms. Adkisson is talking about.
She should go to fox news, we need someone who isn’t going to play politics in reporting the news
Coward and fog horn BOR should have asked her about Barry Soebakah Soetoro’s B.C., but he would rather shit in his pants before put out such a question!!!
You meant FAUX, right???
Hey Sharyl, I think Glen Beck is on the on the line.....
Ailes should hire her as WH correspondent.
Oh, sure, like Fox is not in the tank, too?
Mind your language please; there are ladies present.
What in this “language offends you???
Please. That's the last thing she should do, unless she wants to destroy all credibility with libs (who KNOW Fox News is a right-wing conspiracy) AND conservatives (who know Fox News is barely passing muster as an objective venue).
What should she do? Hell if I know. Maybe she could team up with some other truth-finders and start a new network. Some actual, honest-to-goodness journalists who aren't afraid of the facts and aren't beholden to any political party. Is there such a thing anymore?
