“LOST INTEREST” OR COMMANDEERED?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 12, 2014) — Former CBS veteran and award-winning reporter Sharyl Attkisson told Bill O’Reilly on Friday evening that investigations she launched into Fast & Furious, the Benghazi terrorist attack and Obamacare while at CBS were stifled by her news editors “for lack of interest.”
Since resigning from CBS approximately one month ago, Attkisson has established a website and begun reporting as an independent journalist under the slogan “Resisting undue corporate, political and other special interests.”
Her reasons for leaving the network were expressed as “the network’s liberal bias, an outsize influence by the network’s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting.”
Attkisson’s previous work includes investigations into the gun-running scandal known as “Fast & Furious,” “green energy” projects, Obamacare, “Border Corruption and Terrorism,” and the TARP bank bailout authorized by President George W. Bush in 2008 which Attkisson said went “to Wells Fargo (Bank, NA).”
Attkisson has a book scheduled for release in November titled Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.
In 2009, Obama’s former communications director, Anita Dunn, proudly stated that during the 2008 campaign, the Obama camp had “controlled the media.” There exist various ties between Obama regime upper-level staff and media executives, including White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, whose wife, Claire Shipman, works for ABC News.
Carney and Shipman sport two Soviet-era propaganda posters in their posh Washington, DC home, as reported by The Washingtonian. Shipman previously worked for CNN and NBC, while Carney had written for TIME Magazine and CNN.
The couple met while they were both working in in Moscow but involved in separate relationships. Their young children attend the Sidwell Friends School at a cost of $116,000 annually, where the Obama daughters have attended since Obama entered the White House.
The Washingtonian’s expose on the family couples as an advertisement for $275 sneakers, an $895 suit, and a $300 dress worn by Claire for the photo shoot.
Carney has announced that he will be leaving the regime “soon.”
On Wednesday, Attkisson reported on Twitter that “True enough, the Benghazi related links on my site have been experiencing unexplained technical problems and go daddy has been working…with me to fix.” The statements were made in two separate tweets because of Twitter’s 140-character limit.

The Post & Email replied to Attkisson:
Our comments referenced the revelation made by Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo on February 3 that Obama operatives, some of whom are employed at taxpayer expense at DARPA, a division of the Department of Defense, have trolled the internet to spread propaganda, redirect conversations, and possibly hack email accounts and websites. The Post & Email left a link to PPSimmons, which reported exclusively on Tuesday an update from Zullo in which he said that a significant announcement is forthcoming from Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who launched a second investigation following the posse’s 31-month-old probe, which concluded after six months that Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form are “computer-generated forgeries.”
Arpaio’s investigation may include reportage on “the Obots” who have been disseminating false information and possibly committed cyber-crimes and other violations of law. In January, PPSimmons reported that Arpaio’s upcoming announcement will “dwarf the proven document fraud.”
The Post & Email’s website was hacked on multiple occasions for more than two years until a business decision was made to move it to a private server with extra security at 15 times the previous monthly hosting fee. This writer is aware that her email accounts and those of her spouse have been breached in similar ways.
The Cold Case Posse website has also been hacked, as confirmed by Zullo last week.
The day after a second press conference was given on July 17, 2012 by Arpaio and Zullo, CBS reported their findings that Obama’s documents are “definitely fraudulent,” also stating that “Hawaii officials have repeatedly confirmed Obama’s citizenship.”
CBS affiliate KPHO had ridiculed Arpaio after the presser, asking, “How do you expect any of us to believe any of this?” despite the evidence which Arpaio and Zullo had presented in detail as well as the first press conference on March 1, 2012.
The major media has refused to broadcast anything about the findings of forgery and fraud regarding Obama’s documentation. Some stations, such as MSNBC, are clearly intended to be biased in their reporting.
Another individual responding to Attkisson’s comments also indicated that the malfunctioning of the Benghazi links was not a “big surprise.”
Last summer, CBS reported that Attkisson’s home and work computers had been “accessed by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions in late 2012.” CBS’s spokeswoman stated that an unknown party or parties had breached Attkisson’s computers using “sophisticated methods to remove all possible indications of unauthorized activity.”
CBS was quick to point out, since the DOJ’s seizing of journalists’ phone records had recently come to light, that “the federal government has not been accused in the intrusion of Attkisson’s computer…”
Was “interest lost” in Benghazi, Fast & Furious, and Obamacare, or did Obama operatives discourage CBS’s pursuit of those issues?
To our knowledge, Attkisson has not yet reported on the Cold Case Posse or Arpaio investigations. Carl Gallups of PPSimmons has stated that “major media” are expected to cover Arpaio’s upcoming presser.
Sharon Rondeau has operated The Post & Email since April 2010, focusing on the Obama birth certificate investigation and other government corruption news. She has reported prolifically on constitutional violations within Tennessee’s prison and judicial systems.
