Sharyl Attkisson Discusses Media Coverage of 2016 Presidential Election…

The media’s bias, elitism, group-think, pearl-clutching and smug condescension has never been more brutally evident as it has been within this election cycle.  There is ZERO credibility remaining within the historic institutions of American media.

Journalism is beyond recovery, it is dead.  However, one of those brave few ,who took the off ramp and avoided the journey to irrelevance a few years ago, is former CBS award winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson.  Here’s her take:

There have been rumors about Laura Ingraham being considered for White House Press Secretary; personally, I’d prefer to see Sharyl Attkisson in that job.

      If she wants it. Nice if was offered.
      I like her as investigative journalist. I think she tries to walk non-partisan line but I am not really sure. Much about Clinton and Obama has been written about her.
      Her book and reporting about Obama made it hard to get another job.

    I watched all of the LSM explody head shows today. Recorded all of them and just watched. Maybe the last time time I do this. Want to take a break.

    Realized that Sharyl would be on Howie’s show today. Made my entire year. Sharyl is phenomenal, honest and ‘gets’ it.

    Yes, Sundance. Sharyl would be an exquisite pick.

      She made a lot of sense. As much as I like Hannity, he would have ruined this interview.

          Atkisson worked for CBS Rhodes, brother to Obama’s communications strategist until 2013. She toed the network’s line until Obama was reelected in 2012.

          In 2010 CBS in tandem with their masters, the Obama administration’s DOJ, allowed her to interview whistleblower in the Fast and Furious case John Dodson. She also played devil’s advocate getting inside info from the real investigative journalists covering that story at atfcleanup and sipsey street.

          In short Atkisson would NEVER have been able to conduct that CBS interview without the permission of the MSM ‘s puppet masters at the White House and their left wing corporate CEO’s. So ask yourself, why did they allow it?

          And why did Atkisson, if she is on the up and up, not come out in 2008 railing against Obama’s known connections to Wright, Ayers, Klonsky, Van Jones,his early days in DSA, etc? And why did she wait until after the 2012 election to resign from CBS after all the damage was done?

          By 2013- 2014, the winds of change were blowin’ in the direction of conservative media and Fox news. Michael Savage said it best one day, of all the so-called journalists he knew, 99.9% were self-serving only interested in their own climb to success. In his estimate, after he met Andrew Breitbart, he excluded him from this group. But Atkisson is another hired gun who could have come out swingin’ in 2008 against Obama but would have lost her job at CBS.

          We the people have suffered through 8 years of mainstream media hacks like her and now because she was smart enough to realize the tide was turning in 2013 and headed over to Fox with bigger ratings, I say stop glorifying these people.

          The press secretary should be a scrapper, a real online citizen journalist who has been truth telling for the last 8 years. Somebody here at CTH or Breitbart or lesser known sites.

        “She fell victim to the blue pill for awhile…”
        I was suspicious of Laura for some time, for that reason. But if her support for Trump and his policies is as genuine as it appears to be, she has a lot going for her. In an interview before one of the debates she was spouting off things that could be said as well as effective debate strategies. She is quick on her feet, has experience talking and defending positions, and is very sharp-witted.

        I don’t know as much about Sharyl’s ability to debate and be ready with comebacks. She seems quieter, and I picture her more behind the keyboard. But I respect her tremendously as the consummate journalist with integrity.

        With this present wave, something has to give with TV news.

        Fox is un-watchable, but for Dobbs, Hannity, and Trish Regan is good.

        The rest are worse.

        A news show that mixes virtue with common sense would be huge.

        Are their any liberals out there who could contribute on such a news show?

        What they believe is hard to describe with those limitations, I suppose.

    That whole interview was pretty weird to me. Hi Sharyl. Please tell us how to do our jobs while we are on the air. Who’s the market for that? Still, I like Sharyl. She always comes across as classy and serious at the same time. I originally liked Harris Faulkner for press. She has a way of questioning that doesn’t put the subject on constant alert but she always gets them to give up a bit more meat than they probably wanted to. Kinda the way Barbra Walters used to be, and still is when she puts her mind to it. Maybe Harris is better off doing what she’s doing.

      When she used to do breaking news on weekends, before she “proved herself” to FOX, she was so quick especially in crisis situations like a shooter at a school, when news keeps coming in fast and furious. She didn’t just jabber or fool around stalling for the next direction from someone. She’s just really articulate on the fly, and always looks beautiful.
