Sharyl Attkisson: Cross Obama You Will Be Attacked, Punished

In a new Inspector Generals report says that there is no evidence that former CBS reporter,  Sharyl Attkisson, computers were hacked by anyone in the Government.

Attkisson, who testified before the Senate confirmation hearing for Loretta Lynch, said that crossing the Obama administration in anyway only leads to being attacked or punished for seeking the truth.

sharylattkissonTown Hall put it this way:

Investigative reporter and author of Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington Sharyl Attkisson testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday as part of attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch’s confirmation hearing.

During her testimony, Attkisson detailed government intimidation she has endured under the Obama administration, particularly through the Department of Justice, for pursuing investigative stories unfavorable to the administration. Attkisson has been an investigative reporter for decades and has pursued stories of government corruption, waste, fraud and abuse in both political parties.

“The job of getting at the truth has never been more difficult. Facets of federal government have isolated themselves from the public they serve. They covet and withhold public information that we as citizens own. They bully and threaten access of journalists who do their jobs, news organizations that publish stories they don’t like and whistleblowers who dare to tell the truth,” Attkisson said. “When I reported on factual contradictions in the Administration’s accounts regarding Fast and Furious, pushback included a frenzied campaign with White House officials trying to chill the reporting by calling and emailing my superiors and colleagues, using surrogate bloggers to advance false claims, one White House official got so mad he angrily cussed me out. The Justice Department used its authority with building security to handpick reports allowed to attend a Fast and Furious briefing, refusing to clear me into the public Justice Department building.”

“Let me emphasize that my reporting was factually indisputable, government officials weren’t angry because I was doing my job poorly, they were panicked because I was doing my job well,” she added.
