  • We've lost sight of the real scandal (Sharyl Attkisson)

    What will Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s latest investigation reveal? Will Congress hold hearings about it? Will former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe actually get indicted? After all, it’s said that a motivated prosecutor can “indict a ham sandwich” if he really wants to. We’re so wrapped up in the daily tick-tock, we could be losing sight of a big picture that’s come into focus over the past two years. For the first time in our nation’s history, an inspector general — one appointed by President Obama — has determined that at least two men who sat in...
  • Sharyl Attkisson Fact-Checks 2020 Democrats Over The ‘Murder’ Of Michael Brown

    Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson fired back at Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren over a tweet memorializing the 2009 death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown’s death on August 9, 2009, at the hands of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, sparked nationwide protests as the public seized on later-debunked claims that Brown had thrown up his hands in surrender prior to Wilson shooting him.

    We the media have “fact-checked” President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet—and he’s certainly given us plenty to write about. That’s probably why it’s so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and “lies.”   But as self-appointed arbiters of truth, we’ve largely excused our own unprecedented string of fact-challenged reporting. The truth is, formerly well-respected, top news organizations are making repeat, unforced errors in numbers that were unheard of just a couple of years ago.Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump’s claims are “lies” when they are matters of opinion,...

    The National Sentinel ^ | 5/20/19 | Jon Dougherty
    During an appearance on Mike Huckabee’s Saturday night program on the TNT network, former CBS News ace investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson discussed how she was spied upon by the Obama regime and how deep state espionage against the Trump campaign was based on abject fear of what the president-to-be was promising. Initially, Attkisson — who exposed this in her blockbuster book, “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington” — talked about how she, with the help of cyber-forensic allies, discovered while working for CBS that all of her computers and devices...

    It was bad enough when the Department of Justice under Attorney General Eric Holder engaged in spying on journalist James Rosen (and even spied on his parents' phone records). And the same cast of characters secretly spied on Associated Press reporters -- also in the name of tracking down government leakers. Amid those discoveries were NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden's revelations about massive government spying on the citizenry, which Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had denied under oath. As the dominos began to fall, Holder expressed some regret, particularly as it applied to the intrusion upon journalists, who until the...

    With the conclusions of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe now known to a significant degree, it seems apologies are in order. However, judging by the recent past, apologies are not likely forthcoming from the responsible parties. In this context, it matters not whether one is a supporter or a critic of President Trump. Whatever his supposed flaws, the rampant accusations and speculation that shrouded Trump’s presidency, even before it began, ultimately have proven unfounded. Just as Trump said all along. Yet, each time Trump said so, some of us in the media lampooned him. We treated any words he spoke...

    Television journalist Lara Logan poked the mainstream media beehive last week in a no-holds-barred interview where she bluntly accused many reporters of becoming “political activists” and even “propagandists” for the Left and said journalism has descended into “absolute horses**t.” The response has been furious, personal, and devoid of the respect normally demanded for rape survivors.Lara Logan is a rape survivor in the most literal no-horsesh**t sense of the term. She was assaulted by a mob in Cairo while covering the Arab Spring uprising in February 2011 for CBS News and could easily have been killed. She has made it clear...

    Former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, whose firing brought out nasty attacks and allegations of sexism at the Times, was interviewed by Greta van Susteren On the Record last night. While she played close to the vest about the reasons for her firing, she didn’t hold back on the Obama administration, defending her earlier branding of it as “the most secretive” she has ever deal with since President Carter, and elaborated: “I have never dealt with an administration where more officials—some of whom are actually paid to be the spokesmen for various federal agencies—demand that everything be off...

    A federal appeals court recently heard oral arguments in my lawsuit against former Attorney General Eric Holder, unnamed “John Doe” federal agents at the FBI and Justice Department, and others. At issue are the intrusions into my computers while I worked as an investigative reporter for CBS News, revealed by multiple forensic investigations showing use of proprietary government surveillance programs. It was clear early on that the Justice Department was not interested in investigating or prosecuting its own. So I began the search to find the facts about the invasion into my computers and life. That morphed into a lawsuit...

    There was a great deal of news this past week about President Trump’s audacious disregard for the advice and warnings from his own intelligence community experts. Perhaps there’s good reason for alarm. But I think there’s one shocking aspect — perhaps a larger story — that’s gone virtually unreported. It appears that anonymous intelligence officials are executing an operation against the sitting commander in chief. It might not qualify as all-out mutiny, but it’s also not all that far from one. Right under our noses, while still under investigation for allegedly orchestrating leaks and undermining candidate Trump in 2016, some...

    It’s a sad comment on the quality of “science” being conducted by supposedly reputable scientists. Our cover story this week looks at promises made to the alcohol industry by researchers at the National Institutes of Health. According to documents, NIH promised positive results in advance of a major study on the benefits of moderate drinking. Once the researchers got caught, the study was cancelled but not before millions of our tax dollars were spent. We look at the internal emails.We also have a story that looks into allegedly slanted science in the case of Monsanto’s weed killer Roundup.  Lisa Fletcher...

    American Thinker ^ | 11/30/2018 | Elise Cooper
    Stonewalled is the title of investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson's first book – and stonewalling is what the Department of Justice is doing to her now.  Determined to receive justice, she has a landmark lawsuit against the DOJ for electronically surveilling her computers.  Multiple forensics exams have revealed the government-related remote efforts to monitor her.  Government agents most likely did it because she had the "audacity" to dig into facts regarding wasteful green energy spending, as well as the Fast and Furious and Benghazi scandals.  Besides hitting a brick wall with those in the government who want to see the lawsuit eliminated, Attkisson...

    Newly declassified documents reveal the CIA—which is supposed to be strictly limited in the types of surveillance and other secret operations it conducts on U.S. soil—routinely monitors U.S. government computer systems. That information is contained in two formerly secret letters of “congressional notification” written in 2014 by the Intelligence Community inspector general at the time, Charles McCullough. In the letters, McCullough reveals the CIA secretly intercepted and collected emails between congressional staff and the CIA’s head of whistleblowing and source protection. The collection was said to occur as part of the CIA’s “routine counterintelligence monitoring of government computer systems.” Several...

    Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson writes in the Hill that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been using its surveillance on American citizens “for the better part of two decades, if not longer.” “Maybe you once thought the CIA wasn’t supposed to spy on Americans here in the United States,” said the Emmy-winning investigative journalist. “That concept is so yesteryear.” She points to newly declassified 2014 documents which “reveal the CIA not only intercepted emails of U.S. citizens, but they were emails of the most sensitive kind,” namely about whistleblowers: The disclosures, kept secret until now, are two letters of “congressional...

    Never fails. Obama shows up, makes some silly and pointless speech about himself … err … about the country, and the Left salivates like one of Pavlov’s dogs who just heard a bell ring. Not to mention the weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth from the MEDIA crying for their Messiah, claiming he was a better president and they felt safe with him in the White House. Brian Stelter was impressively pathetic. But other media types remember President Obama a tad differently, like Sharyl Attkisson, who quotes several different outlets talking about the media ‘abuses’ from the Obama administration. Sharyl...

    On Tuesday, I was asked to testify to Congress about a proposed bipartisan “Shield” law that would protect reporters from going to prison if they refuse to reveal their confidential sources. There are exemptions in the proposed law for instances where national security is at risk or lives are in danger. (Thank you to Congressmen Jordan, Raskin, Meadows, Palmer, Krishnamoorthi and Grothman.) At the hearing, I was asked about the government intrusion of my computers.

    Over the past couple of weeks, the liberal media has clinched the gold medal in the linguistic gymnastics. As the Left goes through their 400,000th box of popcorn waiting for the smoking gun that will never come that shows the Kremlin colluding with the Trump team to tilt the election, new news arose. The FBI seems to have spied on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election—and yes, it looks like it was politically motivated. But you see—for some, it’s not spying; our intelligence apparatus just had a confidential informant trying to glean information based on false pretenses. The FBI...

    It’s illegal for foreign governments, citizens and corporations to donate to US politicians. But it’s legal for them to hire middlemen–US PR firms, lobbyists and law groups–to write our laws, meet with US government officials, arrange interviews with US media, places op-eds in news publications and generate positive social media. I’ve been combing through federal disclosure records disclosing which countries are paying which US companies to act as their “foreign agents,” particular when it comes to nemeses Russia and Ukraine. That’s this week’s cover story.
