    Looks that way...

    Is CBS News Silencing Fast and Furious Reporter?

    Yesterday, CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson told radio show host Laura Ingraham that the White House yelled and swore at her over her reporting on the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal tied to the deaths of two U.S. law enforcement agents. Attkisson also revealed that she'd also been yelled at by the Justice Department.

    Today, I called CBS News in an attempt to interview Attkisson. I was told by CBS News senior vice president of communications Sonya McNair that Attkisson would be unavailable for interviews all week. When I asked why Attkisson would be unavailable, McNair would not say.

    I've also heard from a producer at another media outlet that has previously booked Attkisson that they tried to book her since she made news with the Laura Ingraham interview yesterday. They were also told that she would be unavailable.

    After our initial conversation earlier today, I called McNair back and left a message with her office. I also sent McNair an email asking whether Attkisson's unavailability has anything to do with reporting that the White House and Justice Department were angry at her. I further asked McNair if the White House or Justice Department contacted CBS News about Attkisson since yesterday. McNair has not responded to my inquiries.

    Recall what Attkisson told Ingraham yesterday:

    [The White House and Justice Department] will tell you that I'm the only reporter--as they told me--that is not reasonable. They say the Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, the New York Times is reasonable, I'm the only one who thinks this is a story, and they think I'm unfair and biased by pursuing it.

    That's significant, because CBS News, and Attkisson in particular, has done more reporting to advance the Fast and Furious scandal than arguably any other media outlet

    She is a brave investigative reporter. It won't be long before she is fired; just a matter of time for CBS to find the easiest solution to defend. What a gutless batch of socialists. And CBS is just one of the crowd supporting and totally in the tank for this current oligarchy.

    When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.

    I just started paying attention to Fast and Furious and remembered some statements concerning gun control. Hillary was one who said that 90% of all illegal guns in Mexico came fom the US and that stricter gun control was necessary to stop these guns from getting into Mexico. I don't mean to imply she was a part of F&F and she wasn't the only one making such statements concerning gun control.

    But isn't it ironic that this administration was busy sending illegal guns to Mexico, it was using the arguement that stricter gun control was needed to stop them???

    Just a thought.
