    From the moment that Sharyl Attkisson met a shadowy source Ill call Big Mac, she was plunged into a nightmare involving mysterious surveillance of her computers. They met at a McDonalds in Northern Virginia at the beginning of 2013, and the source (she dubs him Number One) warned her about the threat of government spying. During their next hamburger rendezvous, Big Mac told Attkisson, then a CBS News reporter constantly at odds with the Obama administration, that he was shocked and flabbergasted by his examination of her computer and that this was worse than anything Nixon ever did. Attkissons forthcoming...
  • Clinton widens lead in Democrat-heavy NBC-WSJ poll But that may not the full story

    In focus on Full Measure this past Sunday, we heard from a polling expert who cautioned that the headline of any poll rarely tells the full story. Looking at the sample, the WSJ-NBC News poll, like many others, leaned more heavily on Democrats. If Democrats turn out in significantly greater numbers than Republicans, then the poll is likely to be most accurate. If not, then it may not be a true measure of the state of play. On the other hand, theres little doubt that Trumps popularity has slipped when compared to similar, previous Democrat-heavy polls. Another factor introducing possible...

My crew and I were cleared by Secret Service several hours in advance and waited in a small locker room where the interview was to take place, so we didnt get to see the crowd as it gathered at Germain arena. After the interview, Trump asked if Id seen the big crowd. When I told him I hadnt, he asked me to take...

    The Takeaways The FBI could not review all of the Hillary Clinton emails under investigation because: The Clintons Apple personal server used for Hillary Clinton work email could not be located for the FBI to examine. An Apple MacBook laptop and thumb drive that contained Hillary Clinton email archives were lost, and the FBI couldnt examine them. 2 BlackBerry devices provided to FBI didnt have their SIM or SD data cards. 13 Hillary Clinton personal mobile devices were lost, discarded or destroyed. Therefore, the FBI couldnt examine them. Various server backups were deleted over time, so the FBI couldnt examine...

The following is a media news analysis Another poll; another way to spin. Earlier this week, I showed how the reporting on a Bloomberg poll could be skewed to make results look more or less positive for a given candidate. Today, we look at a Washington Post/ABC News poll that also purports to show a widening Clinton lead over Trump by 8 points: 50% to 42%. This may well be...

    Sharyl Attkisson was interviewed on NewsMax TV with Steve Malzberg and discussed an event she attended where a well known DC Journalist Bureau Chief urged all of the reporters in attendance to earnestly work at taking down candidate Donald Trump. When you consider the event being discussed, and further add the known hatred from a very specific Washington Bureau Chief, it stands to reason Attkisson is discussing Carl Bernstein. Bernstein previously said that all reporters have a professional journalistic responsibility to destroy the candidacy of Donald Trump. Bernstein, if you didnt know, is a full-throated supporter of Hillary Clinton.

    Here are some of the observations by FBI professionals who wish to remain anonymous because their opinions could affect their job prospects: Why wasnt Clintons interview recorded? On May 22, 2014 the Justice Department announced a substantial change in policy creating a presumption that FBIagents will electronically record, expressing a preference for video recordings over audio. It appears to me they made a deal not to record, says one observer, which flies in the face of the idea that Clinton was treated like anybody else. Typically its the U.S. Attorneys office, not FBI agents, deciding whether charges will be filed....

    Beyond the FBI Probe There were further important public issues not addressed by the FBI today. They involve public records laws and the cost borne by the public, due to Clintons failures. Did Clinton allegedly violate public records laws? Yes, through use of the private servers and devices, failure to maintain required public records, temporary and permanent deletion of many records, and failure to fully disclose the records when asked. Did Clinton turn over all her public work records to the State Department in 2014 when her public servers were discovered? No. Did Clinton make all of the publics records...

Justice Department emails formerly withheld under the Presidents assertion of executive privilege containing quotes like these: We would suggest that you pull the sentence that notes how many weapons weve recovered.

    The evidence is overwhelming that the United States had several rescue teams ready to go during the 2012 Benghazi attacks, but someone -- possibly the president himself -- prevented them from acting. So said Emmy Award-winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson to talk show host Steve Malzberg in an interview on Wednesday. This week on her show, "Full Measure," Attkisson looked into the aborted rescue mission in an in-depth two-part report, "Rescue Interrupted," which you can watch here and here. She spoke with a Green Beret commander who told her that there were actually Special Forces on their way to Benghazi who...

    There must have been "very, very bad or embarrassing" things on Hillary Clinton's personal email server that was wiped clean including information on the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya, says former CBC News investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson. In an interview on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV on Monday, Attkisson said it was just "common sense" that the deleted data was likely worse than the firestorm created by its deletion. "In my experience, there must've been some very, very bad or embarrassing things on there, because it appears as if she'd rather take...

    There are widespread efforts to create what I call a false realityto engulf you when youre exposed to most any forms of media. The idea is to give the impression theres widespread support for or against an agendawhen there may not really be. Those behind the efforts to sway your opinion, sometimes using bullying tactics, are special interests thatwant to make debates seem over, science seem settled, and make you feel like your an outlierwhen none of those things is actually the case.These interests increasinglyuse PR firms that createsophisticated campaignsto advance their narratives.

    Its not your imagination. Global terrorism, dominated by Muslim extremist groups, is by far the worst its been in modern times. In the past six years, the United States has added 21 names to its list of foreign terrorist organizations: all but one of them radical Muslim groups. Thats more than the previous 10 years combined. At the same time, the number of terrorist acts has shattered previous records. Experts predict data for 2014, which is still being compiled, will likely reflect more than 15,000 terrorist attacks: a vast increase over 2013which was already the deadliest year for global terrorism...

    Sharyl Attkisson has bravely spoken out about her experiences with editorial bias at CBS News over the past couple of years, but it wasnt Attkisson who spoke to the Des Moines Registers Courtney Crowder. This time the whistleblower is NBC News Lisa Myers, who is currently on the lecture circuit discussing her experiences as a journalist. Myers left NBC a year ago after clashing with Brian Williams over his refusal to air reports that he considered divisive, but that Myers considered part of the job of news organizations to keep government accountable. One of Myers spiked stories was that...

    According to a new survey of high-ranking federal officials, it is common practice for agency officials to use personal email and also to fail to preserve the documents. With that in mind, we asked the Department of Justice if Attorney General Eric Holder has ever used a personal email account for government business.

    Sharyl Attkisson knows a thing or two about media bias.  After all, it was Attkisson who blew the lid off CBS's blatant bias favoring the president and his administration in her recent book Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama's Washington.   On Monday, Attkisson appeared  on The Steve Malzberg Show on Newsmax TV, and told him she couldn’t understand how Hillary Clinton, a former secretary of state and presidential candidate, could withstand such a scandal, while NBC News anchor Brian Williams may not. Attkisson was a reporter acommpanying Hillary Clinton in...

    Former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson said the Obama administration has been producing its own video content to promote unfiltered messages with taxpayer-funded staff, including hairstylists, makeup artists and wardrobe consultants. By cutting out the news media, Attkisson said the White House has figured out how to avoid questions and accountability. She also revealed that the Department of Agriculture has more than 1,200 media relations employees nationwide. White House officials have exploited non-news media to spoon-feed unfiltered messaging, at times pure propaganda, into the publics mouth. The Google-sponsored chat I mentioned that came with a pre-selected audience and questions...
