Sharyl Attkisson: CBS Bosses Encouraging Benghazi Investigation Sharyl Attkisson, CBS News: "No one has spoken to me about the Benghazi story, pressuring me one way or another. In fact our executives, our CEO Jeff Fager, our President David Rhodes have been encouraging in general of the kind of reporting I do. There are diverse range of views and opinions within CBS News, on the broadcast and among the producers who run the various broadcasts. It's hard to explain on a given day why they think something's news versus something else. They have a lot of stories to choose from and that's their prerogative so there is a lot of discussion on what best serves the public in those broadcasts. But I've never received any executive pressure to not do the Benghazi story."
