Sharyl Attkisson: There is Coordination Between Reporters and Politicians

As DailySurge contributor Chris Salcedo noted, Sharyl Attkisson had been an investigative reporter with CBS News for two decades. Her frustration with CBS’s liberal bias lead her to resign from CBS News. Attkisson says she was worried about the ever-growing influence by CBS’s corporate partners and the lack of dedication to investigative reporting. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported.

Recently, Sharyl Attkisson sat down with Talk Radio 1210 WPHT-AM radio host Chris Stigall and told her side of the story.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if sometimes there is that level of cooperation with some questions. If I need something answered from the White House and they won’t tell me, I’ll call our White House Correspondent. They’re friendlier with the White House Correspondents in general. So the White House Correspondent may ask Jay Carney or one of his folks about an issue and they will be told ‘ask that at the briefing and we’ll answer it.’ They want to answer it in front of everybody. They do know it’s coming and they’ll call on you. There’s that kind of coordination sometimes,” Attkisson said.

“I wouldn’t be shocked if there’s sometimes more coordination. I don’t think it’s everybody on every briefing, every day. I’m pretty sure it’s not. But I think people would be surprised at the level of cooperation reporters have in general with politicians, Attkisson continued.
