I spend that day away from my computer and guess what happens to the one MSM reporter who has actually been checking out Obama:
CBS News announced Friday that correspondent Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was hacked by “an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions,” confirming Attkisson’s previous revelation of the hacking.
CBS News spokeswoman Sonya McNair said that a cybersecurity firm hired by CBS News “has determined through forensic analysis” that “Attkisson’s computer was accessed by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions in late 2012.”
Lots of reaction. Hotair
Attkisson, who has reported on Operation Fast and Furious and Benghazi and sparked ire from the White House while doing do, demurred on the source of the hacking but said CBS News was investigating it.
We don’t yet know who hacked Sharyl Attkisson’s computers at the very time she happened to be digging into the Benghazi scandal. Perhaps it was a rival reporter, a rogue partisan, or just some guy in a basement with too much time on his hands.
But we’re at a remarkable point in our history when a majority of Americans probably — and with good reason – consider their own government the most likely suspect. There have always been those who’ve first blamed The Government for any manner of nefarious deeds. But their numbers were usually small and invariably in the minority. Now, however, the government no longer enjoys the benefit of the doubt.
But there is no reason to think that this or the last time she was hacked had anything to do wit the government:
To our knowledge, the Justice Department has never compromised Ms. Attkisson’s computers, or otherwise sought any information from or concerning any telephone, computer, or other media device she may own or use.
Does that sound weasel or not, maybe we should ask them again, under oath
But Jim Geraghty nails it best
I'm sure whoever hacked @SharylAttkisson's computer is just a rogue, low-level employee acting on his own with no direction from above.
