Is it Nixon Yet? Atkinson Hacked

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.

The cor­ner:

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

We as a nation, elected these guys, it’s on us.

Spent the day away from the PC until now, unfor­tu­nately so did the Tip Jar hitters.

Still just $72 Bucks left to the pay­check 4 peo­ple at $20. Piece of cake or impos­si­ble goal.

Your call.

Con­sider a sub­scrip­tion if 52 of you are will­ing to sub­scribe at $20 each then DaTip­Jar will be reserved for spe­cial trips and disasters.




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.

The corner:

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

We as a nation, elected these guys, it’s on us.
