Ya’ll remember Sharyl……don’t you?

”60 Minutes’ Reviewing Benghazi Story Over Witness’ Conflicting Accounts’
NEW YORK — ‘CBS’ “60 Minutes” announced Thursday night that it’s reviewing a controversial Oct. 27 report on the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, to determine if its eyewitness, security officer Dylan Davies, “misled” the network. “60 Minutes” said it had “learned of new information that undercuts” the harrowing account given on air’.

‘The New York Times reported Thursday that Davies previously told the FBI that he was not at the U.S. compound on the night of Sept. 11, 2012 — an account that directly contradicts his “eyewitness” statements on air’.
And now…..

‘Attkisson also confirmed she’s working on a book about how stories are reported in the media’.

“I’ve been wanting to write about the unseen influences on the media by coordinated, paid factions, whether they’re from political, corporate or other special interests, the tactics they use to manipulate the images we see”.

  • Such as you manipulating a story Sharyl?

    As Ms. Clinton so huffily said when asked hard questions in public, “What does it matter” what thelastofthemillenniums thinks?

  2. Sure, it’s the Republicans who started with the lies (grins). Even more hilarious is the story you reference is botched CBS report – resulting from one overzealous production team and a very self absorbed, delusional security officer – That story nothing to do with Republicans. If you’re really interested lies, go check out the revolving door at Beacon Global (sigh)

    • Plllleasssseeeeeeeeeeeee……

      She trumped up the Benghazi story finding a guy who told the FBI he WASN’T there and then telling her he WAS there.

      She pulled the same crap on her stories on vaccines.

      As to her being a Republican?

      Yeah….you keep rowing down dat river of denial………..

      ‘Attkisson is at work on a book, Stonewalled: One Reporters Fight For Truth In Obama’s Washington, that some say perfectly describes her frustration with CBS News. The book is not being published by CBS Corp’s Simon & Schuster but by NewsCorp’s HarperCollins — which others say perfectly illustrates Attkisson’s political agenda’.

      ‘First, in May, she says on a radio show that her computers had been compromised and says the intrusions could be related somehow to the U.S. government’s surveillance of Fox News reporter James Rosen..’

      ‘Second, in June, CBS News confirmed the breaches and Attkisson declared on Fox News that she thinks she knows who did it — though she didn’t say any more’.

      ‘Reporter Sharyl Attkisson announced today that she has resigned from CBS. Attkisson, whose reporting has been marred by factual problems, has become a favorite of Fox News personalities’.

      ‘Politico’s Dylan Byers reports that sources say Attkisson left CBS because she “had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias” while some staffers characterized her work as “agenda-driven, [which] had led network executives to doubt the impartiality of her reporting.”

      ‘Attkisson is writing a book tentatively titled “Stonewalled: One Reporter’s Fight for Truth in Obama’s Washington” for HarperCollins, which is owned by News Corporation, the corporate sibling of Fox News parent 21st Century Fox’.

      ‘If Attkisson joins Fox, she’ll follow the path of several other controversial media figures who conservatives believed were mistreated by the media. Those include Doug McKelway, Lou Dobbs, Don Imus, and Judith Miller. Reporter Bernard Goldberg joined Fox News after leaving CBS and accusing his former employer of liberally slanting their news coverage’.

      ‘Fox News has showered praise on Attkisson in recent months, with personalities indicating they want her to join the conservative network’.

      • I wasn’t so much making the point “Attkisson is not a Republican” as I was saying that – her being an overzealous dbag doesn’t equate Republicans not having a legitimate point in this discussion.”

        Nevertheless, I can tell by reply you immediately malign anyone opposing the Obama white house in this matter, so we should probably quit while we’re ahead.

        Safe to say Morell’s fiasco of a “dog and pony show” yesterday proves there in fact IS reason to question the administrations take on what went down in Libya.

        In which case I stand by my last comment – if you are really interested in “lies” go check out the revolving door

        If you do that, and still think this is just a “Republican talking point” (grins) …. the only one “floating down dat river” is you 😉

        Cheers!

      • You on 2014/04/03 at 2:44 pm : ” That story nothing to do with Republicans”.

        You on 2014/04/04 at 8:20 am : “I wasn’t so much making the point “Attkisson is not a Republican”.

        It was her story on 60 Minutes. She produced and blew the whole thing by NOT checking her source that the right wing went crazy the following day and within a week – found out her ‘source’ lied to her as there was a public record FBI file with an interview of his saying he was NOT there but in his interview with Logan, said he was and tried to make himself look like a hero.

        Google Attkisson and vaccines for a real eye opener on her (cough) ‘reporting’ – (GRINS!).

        Or keep watching FOX – ROTFLMFAO!!!! – And keep fixating on ‘talking points’ that changed 5 days later when the FBI made it’s first report.

        Talking points….

        How about a President sending Americans to be murdered and what do Democrats do?

        Stand by our Nation as she grieved…..
        ‘At 6:39 a.m. on that autumn day in 1983, 220 Marines, 18 sailors and three American civilians were killed and another 60 were injured as a result of a horrific explosion detonated by a terrorist suicide truck bomb that destroyed the Marine barracks at the airport in Beirut, Lebanon’.
        ‘It was the largest one-day death toll for Marines since the Battle for Iwo Jima in 1945’.
        ‘With a force of six tons of TNT, it was described as the largest explosion since the end of World War II.
        Those Marines had been ordered into Lebanon by President Ronald Reagan as a part of an international peacekeeping force following the June 1982 Israeli invasion of that country and the Palestine Liberation Organization’s withdrawal’.

        ‘Reagan, well into his first term and eager to establish his hawkish foreign policy credentials in the face of a persistent recession, ignored Weinberger. But it was not Reagan, but the military who took the fall‘.

        ‘Shortly after the barracks bombing, President Ronald Reagan appointed a military fact-finding committee headed by retired Admiral Robert L. J. Long to investigate the bombing. The commission’s report found senior military officials responsible for security lapses and blamed the military chain of command for the disaster. It suggested that there might have been many fewer deaths if the barracks guards had carried loaded weapons and a barrier more substantial than the barbed wire the bomber drove over easily’.

  4. Rage on Fatherkane (let me suggest anger management) – keep belching that arrogant nonsense, as though it somehow validates you’re perspective.

    Quite sad you believe your grasp of “wit” equals “fact,” as though anything you’ve just stated negates my original point (grins).

    This is not about “stopping the Republican lies” LMAO. It’s about perspective. Which YOU, my (not) friend are obviously lost to … in you’re (ever) myopic view; all you can do is spout past failures by conservative leadership. As if, this somehow justifies the behavior of the Obama administration, relating to Benghazi.

    Calling you a “Kool Aide slugging tool” would only incite more verbal ignorance from you, I realize (here it comes). So let’s skip that and just ackn0wledge outright, your blindness.

    If I didn’t know better I’d think you we’re getting paid to be so dumb. But I understand, (hardcore) liberalism is a disease, and you (not) my friend are “infected.”

    So go on, continue with the “liberal agenda” (which you so obviously live to defend) Feed on, with your myopic view. Live on, in your microcosm. Obviously, anyone who doesn’t share (your) view IS “retarded.”

    You’ve got it all worked out FATHERFOOL. YOU have the answers.

    No chance I suppose, you might be lost to “paradigm.” (grins) – as though you can appreciate what that means. You’re a sad little sort… Soooo, one sided.

    Just know, when you speak as though everyone else is “ignorant,” while overstating the “facts,” you allow your lack of sophistication to obscure what might otherwise end up (dare I say) objective analysis. And so, keep on living in your “self serving little view” – Republicans are out to get me HA!

    Anyway, like I said earlier…. we should stop while we’re ahead. You have you’re views, I have mine – even if mine are 5 channel and yours are 2

    Just ask Jonathon Haidt – not a conservative (and which by the way would be the best use of your time in the next year) – http://www.ted.com/talks/jonathan_haidt_on_the_moral_mindobjective analysis

    Nevertheless, if I could offer anything a person like you “KANE” it would be to “question your angry paradigm.”

    http://troymo.wordpress.com/2014/02/03/naked-emperors/

    In the meantime, ignore my links (like we know you will) and go on believing you’ve figured it out.

    Cheers (again)!

    • ROTFLMAO!!

      Let’s see…..NOW your’argument’ is “Rage on Fatherkane”, ” sad you believe your grasp of “wit” equals “fact,”, “This is not about “stopping the Republican lies” LMAO. It’s about perspective”., ” Calling you a “Kool Aide slugging tool”, “If I didn’t know better I’d think you we’re getting paid to be so dumb”, “So go on, continue with the “liberal agenda”, “Obviously, anyone who doesn’t share (your) view IS “retarded.”, “You’ve got it all worked out FATHERFOOL”, “Just know, when you speak as though everyone else is “ignorant,” while overstating the “facts,”, “if I could offer anything a person like you “KANE” it would be to “question your angry paradigm.”.

      Yeah….I’m the one with anger issues…..(GRINS!!)

      Not one single word re: Sharyl Attkisson or President Reagan sending 220 Marines, 18 Sailors and 3 civilians to slaughter and the Democrats response to stand by and support our President.

      When you attack the messenger and ignore the message, you are the fool with empty hands.

  5. apparently the link I gave is fail … nevertheless, you deserve to know this shttp://www.ted.com/talks/jonathan_haidt_on_the_moral_mind

    • LMAO!! 3 tries to finally post a link???

      WHOA!!

      Yes Haidt does have some interesting ‘theories’ :

      “My analysis is that the Tea Party really wants [the] Indian law of Karma, which says that if you do something bad, something bad will happen to you, if you do something good, something good will happen to you,” says Haidt. “And if the government interferes and breaks that link, it is evil. That I think is much of the passion of the Tea Party.”

      ‘In other words, while you may think your political opponents are immoral—and while they probably think the same of you—Haidt’s analysis shows that the problem instead is that they are too moral, albeit in a visceral rather than an intellectual sense’.

      ‘For Haidt, the political moment that perfectly captured this conservative (and Tea Party) morality—while simultaneously showing how absolutely incomprehensible it is to those on the left—was Wolf Blitzer’s famous gotcha question to Ron Paul during a 2011 Republican presidential debate. Blitzer asked Paul a hypothetical question about a healthy, 30-year-old man who doesn’t get health care because he doesn’t think he needs it, but then winds up in a serious medical situation. When Blitzer asked Paul whether society should just “let him die,” there were audible cheers and cries of “yeah” from the audience—behavior that was appalling to care-focused liberals, but that is eminently understandable, under Haidt’s paradigm, as an emotional outburst based on a very different morality. Watch it’:

      You keep saying “we should stop while we’re ahead”. Yet you keep posting.

      Along with looking into your anger issues, have them take a look at you commitment issues as well (GRINS!!).
