Attkisson takes on her critics

In the second part of Brian Stelter's interview with Sharyl Attkisson, she responds to criticism of her own reporting work at CBS News. (Here's the first part.)

After taping this interview, we sought comment from a spokeswoman for CBS News, with the hope that the network would directly respond to Attkisson's assertions. The network responded with the same statement it distributed after Attkisson resigned in March: "We appreciate her many contributions and we wish her well."

We also sought comment from Media Matters; Attkisson said she thought it was possible that the liberal media monitoring group had been paid to discredit her. Media Matters responded:

"Sharyl Attkisson is continuing a pattern of evidence-free speculation that started at the end of her tenure at CBS. We have never taken contributions to target her or any other reporter. Our decision to post any research on Attkisson is based only on her shoddy reporting."

    I thought the CNN interviewer was a bit hostile to Sharyl Attkisson, but, I agree with her that it is best to go to original sources & do Google searches. I didn't feel the commentator did that. She had a series of excellent articles that took on the powers of politics. She also had her computer hacked in a very peculiar way. Sharyl is an Emmy-award winning investigative journalist.

    I also disagree with Attkisson re: vaccines. As an RN , they should be given . Her credibility is intact on other issues.

    Re: Attkisson interview: Thank you, CNN.

    What Attkisson alleges is going on at CBS news is obviously true. They haven't covered any news for the last several years.

    But Attkisson also is a problem. Her position on vaccines is utterly irresponsible - in fact, it's brain-dead. This has to reflect on the credibility of what else she says.

      So anyone who disagrees with your view point is brain dead? You must be some top notch genius. Tell me, what have you contributed to society?
