CBS Journalist Resigns After Being Pressured Over 'Anti-Obama' Reporting

But don’t expect a Liz Wahl-style media circus
Paul Joseph Watson


CBS journalist Sharyl Attkisson resigned today after facing pressure over reports she filed that were deemed to be overly critical of President Obama, but don’t expect the mainstream media to create a circus around Attkisson’s resignation like they did that of RT host Liz Wahl.

“Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network’s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air,” reports Politico, noting that Attkisson’s work was characterized as “agenda-driven” because she was hard on the Obama administration.

In the world of American state media, there is no room for adversarial reporting. Despite the fact that it used to be the role of the fourth estate to speak truth to power, Attkisson’s apparent unwillingness to let White House talking points go unchallenged has cost her her job.

Attkisson’s work over the past five years has primarily focused on Obama scandals such as the Fast and Furious gunrunning controversy and the attack in Benghazi, but she did also skewer Republicans. A source close to Attkisson told Politico that she was frustrated as CBS’ lack of support for anti-Obama investigative reporting.

While RT’s Liz Wahl received global attention and a slew of mainstream media appearances after she quit the Russian network for similar reasons, don’t expect the corporate press to afford Attkisson anything like the same level of attention.

As is documented in the video below, Wahl’s resignation was a cynical pre-planned stunt that had little to do with Russia’s actions in Crimea and everything to do with Wahl putting herself in the shop window for a job with CNN.

However, it was exploited by the establishment media as a tool with which to bash RT, which is stealing a good chunk of audience share from the likes of CNN and MSNBC, which have both lost around 50% of their viewership in the last year alone – precisely because they employ so few hard-hitting journalists like Sharyl Attkisson.

75169 Once again we hear the tired old "the media is too liberal" line. This is just one side of the same coin, and a wooden-nickle at that. All mainstream media act as cheer-leaders and apologists for the State, corporations, and institutions, constantly presenting expansion of government as progress. No-bid contracts, Snowden's German TV interview, and many other truly newsworthy stories go suppressed and untold while the red and blue sock puppets drone on.
