Sharyl Attkisson is coming forth with information that could possibly be another case of government intrusion- This time into her computers.


Sharyl Attkisson, the Emmy-award winning CBS News investigative reporter, says that her personal and work computers have been compromised and are under investigation.

In an earlier interview with WPHT Philadelphia, Attkisson said that though she did not know the full details of the intrustion, "there could be some relationship between these things and what's happened to James [Rosen]," the Fox News reporter who became the subject of a Justice Dept. investigation after reporting on CIA intelligence about North Korea in 2009.

This is scary stuff.

America is looking more and more like it's own sworn enemies- Intruding into the lives, records, and associations of credible reporters...

We are starting to mirror Iran, Russia, Syria etc... with the way in which these reporters and journalists are being (potentially) criminalized by our government.

Most upsetting of all is half the idiots in this country will make excuses for it just because "their guy" is in power and the half that feigns outrage today didnt say a word when "their guy" went all fascist a few short years ago and likely wont say anything the next time "their guy" is in the drivers seat.

I can wish with all my might but most folks still wont get that the enemy of liberty isnt a (D) or an (R) but government at large.

The only thing worse than bugging the press like they were criminals, is to be caught doing it before getting enough 'goods' to have even that story shut down. Obviously, it hadn't gotten that far or we'd not even be hearing about it.

Now it gets interesting as the Press really have something to take personal. They haven't been treated all that well for 13 years. Enough of them today, having been working back then to know the difference. The last few years have already been rougher than most and now a real meaty cause to latch onto? I wouldn't want to be the focus of the Press corps right now. Oh, not within miles of it. Whoever thought making personal enemies of the media was a wise move?

That's appears to be a fairly accurate statement. Right is right, wrong is wrong, and political corruption is just plain EVIL.

No kidding. IMO, a government assault on the Press-at-large, is an assault on America.

The Department of Justice denies compromising or seeking any information from Sharyl Attkisson. Here's their official statement:


The Justice Department told Business Insider on Tuesday that it had no knowledge of "compromising" a computer belonging to CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson.

A Justice Department spokesperson told Business Insider, "To our knowledge, the Justice Department has never 'compromised' Ms. Atkisson’s computers, or otherwise sought any information from or concerning any telephone, computer, or other media device she may own or use."

If they weren't paying attention to her prior to these allegations, I bet they are now. Seeing how these things are going as of late, it wouldn't surprise me if the DOJ did indeed take a peek into Ms. Attkisson's computers.
