Attkisson: Covering Fast and Furious at CBS 'Hard Sell'

Attkisson: Covering Fast and Furious at CBS 'Hard Sell'

Former CBS correspondent Sharyl Attkisson, now of the Daily Signal, reported that it was a “hard sell” to get her colleagues at CBS to cover the so-called “Fast and Furious” scandal and that “there were many who didn’t want the story covered” on Friday’s broadcast of “The Laura Ingraham Show.”

When asked whether she suffered for her coverage of “Fast and Furious” scandal and the story’s impact on her career at CBS, Attkisson responded, “There were many who didn’t want the story covered who for whatever reason decided it was a non-story even when the Attorney General was held in criminal contempt by Congress, this is the first time that’s ever happened to a sitting Attorney General, that was a hard sell that we should even cover that story.”

She also stated that the recent decision to allow illegal immigrants to serve in the military was part of a thought out “thought-out agenda,” and an example of the “confused, and broken, and sick” immigration system where it is “hard to know which ones [laws] are enforceable and which ones aren’t and so government has decided some people don’t have to abide by some laws, other people do.”
