The brother of a top Obama administration official is also the president of CBS News, and the network may be days away from dropping one of its top investigative reporters for covering the administrations scandals too aggressively.
CBS News executives have reportedly expressed frustration with their own reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, who has steadily covered the Obama administrations handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack in Libya since late last year.
Network sources told Politico Wednesday that CBS executives feel Attkissons Benghazi coverage is bordering on advocacy, and Attkisson cant get some of her stories on the air.
Attkisson, who is in talks to leave the network before her contract expires, has been attempting to figure out who changed the Benghazi talking points for more than five months.
We still dont know who changed talking points but have had at least 4 diff explanations so far, Attkisson tweeted on November 27, 2012.
But on Friday, ABC News reported that the Benghazi talking points went through 12 revisions before they were used on the public. The White House was intimately involved in that process, ABC reported, and the talking points were scrubbed free of their original references to a terror attack.
That reporting revealed that President Obamas deputy national security advisor, Ben Rhodes brother of CBS News president David Rhodes was instrumental in changing the talking points in September 2012.
ABCs reporting revealed that Ben Rhodes, who has a masters in fiction from NYU, called a meeting to discuss the talking points at the White House on September 15, 2012.
