But Attkisson had become a polarizing figure at the network, sources there said. While some championed her relentless dedication to investigations — ranging from defective Firestone tires to the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal — others saw evidence of a political agenda, particularly against President Barack Obama.Got that? Reporting on huge government screw-ups that would have been covered relentlessly by CBS (and all the rest) had Bush or Romney been involved (and relentlessly BY 60 MINUTES no doubt) becomes evidence of a 'political agenda' when it involves Obama. Sorta makes her point.
Expect to see a lot of dirt thrown about her between now and the time her book comes out. They will say the book itself is evidence of an agenda. But any book she writes will likely expose who she thinks hacked not only her work computer, but her home PC, another story that would have been huge if roles were reversed. Hell, if this had happened during Bush Hollywood would have made a movie about it, maybe starring Naomi Watts with Sean Penn as her heroic producer speaking truth to GOP power.
It goes without saying she's privy to a lot of inside baseball stuff at the network and the MSM in general, which could be rather juicy insofar as telling the tale of what got spiked.
And speaking of hot babes working for CBS, what's up with Lara Logan, another investigative reporter who dared touch a liberal third rail? She's still listed as a correspondent on the show but CBS isn't commenting on when she'll return from her "leave of absence". Wonder how long her sentence is? And wonder what happened to Dylan Davies, her disgraced source, who at last check was on the run to escape threats to his family?
