Mainstream media outlets cover up for President Obama and kill unfavorable stories’: Bombshell claims made by former CBS reporter in explosive new book
- Sharyl Attkisson left CBS in the spring, with some reporting she had split because of the network’s ‘liberal’ bias
- Attkisson, who is now a contributor for The Daily Signal at Heritage Foundation, says the administration hounded her for her coverage of Fast and Furious and Benghazi
- She also blames CBS for being willing to kill stories that were critical of government or controversial
- A conflict of interest with CBS President David Rhodes, whose brother is part of the Obama administration, also complicated reporting
An ex-CBS reporter is releasing a book that blames mainstream media outlets for covering for President Obama.
Sharyl Attkisson left CBS in the spring and opened up about her former employer and colleagues in ‘Stonewalled’ and claims that the media is liberal and covers up for the current administration.
According to a review in the New York Post, officials within the administration constantly criticized Attkisson’s report efforts as ‘unreasonable.’

Eric Schultz, part of the Obama press team, reportedly yelled at her when she pressed him about the scandal over the ATF’s gunwalking scheme called Operation Fast and Furious.
‘Goddammit, Sharyl!’ he shouted. ‘The Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, The New York Times is reasonable. You’re the only one who’s not reasonable!’
Attkisson, who is now senior independent contributor for The Daily Signal, a media channel for conservative think tank Heritage Foundation, claims in her book that corporate media is hesitant to court controversy At CBS, Attkisson claims in her book that TV news is hesitant to court controversy out of fear of offending advertisers.
While reporting on the shortcomings of Red Cross disaster relief efforts in the period following Hurricane Katrina, Attkisson says she was told to wait for CBS’s stock split with Viacomm to report anything that might unsettle to corporate partners.
The same skittishness carried over to covering some of President Obama’s more public failures, such as the green-energy company Solyndra that went bankrupt after receiving millions in loan guarantees.
Attkisson says a colleague told her that one executive wanted those stories on the CBS Evening News, but then-executive producer Pat Shevlin did not agree.
Novel: Her revelations claim to show there is a liberal bias in the news media as a whole that excuses the Obama administration
[The stories] are pretty significant,” said a news exec. “Maybe we should be airing some of them on the ‘Evening News?’ ” Replied the program’s chief Pat Shevlin, “What’s the matter, don’t you support green energy?
Atkisson also claims one of her superiors made it a rule to explicitly label conservatives as such, but that liberals and left-wing analysts were not called out.
Apparently saving the details for the book, Attkisson says a conservative analyst who was far afield of her boss’s personal views would
One issue Attkisson points out is that CBS President David Rhodes has a glaring conflict of interest with the Obama administration, as his brother Ben is Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.
Nasty emails to Ben and David would apparently be sent when the network aired something distasteful to the administration, according to Attkisson.
CBS reporters have still gone after the Obama administration in the past — a 60 Minutes report from Lara Logan about the unpreparedness of consular security in Benghazi retracted after its primary source was determined to be a fraud.
For Attkisson though, the digging was too little too late, and she left the network in 2014, unsatisfied with what she saw as liberal excuses for the administration’s actions.
