He made some news.

It has gotten to the point where the mainstream media is blatantly outright lying to the American people. How they can spin the Horowitz report the way they have is lies and they need to be called out for it. They cannot call themselves a news media with a spin like they have. They are a propaganda outlet.for the left. Where are the standards for the press? Shouldn't their licenses be revoked? If they can't be held accountable for their mistakes (outright lies) why are they allowed to continue to influence vulnerable people? More outlets and people need to be fighting back, , even advertisers. This is not a free press, it's a propaganda arm aimed at the uninformed to brainwash them..

I watched the Barr interview with Pete Williams and thought that it was pretty good considering it was on MSNBC, your analysis of what Barr said was excellent and raised many interesting questions most
of which are not covered in the media. I also noted that after Barr made his public comments the Washington Post published an OpEd by Eric Holder which essentially criticized Barr and said he was unfit to be Attorney General, which was rich coming from Holder, and was an obvious attempt to preempt criticism of the media's thin coverage of the IG report.
The Deep CessPool has upended what the United States is supposed to be. The next step in their plan, will be the take over by a Dictator, under the guise of, say, a Climate "crisis". Then, like all useful idiots in all coups (hint Adolph and Joe) the useful idiots at the top will be rounded up, along with opposition, and disposed of.
The Deep CessPool are either of the most willfully ignorant or on the Payroll of Foreign governments. There is no other answer.

Sharyl Attkisson, you are the closest thing to a real, objective journalist I have encountered in recent memory. I guess it comes as no surprise that you're not anchoring or acting as a top reporter for a major network now.
Your situation, not being trumpeted by your supposed peers as one the very best investigative reporters in the industry, is exceptional proof that most of them are politically poisoned hacks, unwilling to tell the truth when it gores their own oxen.
Thank you for having the integrity to do the right thing.
Democrats leak to the press. That is why the media loves the Democrats.
I support you and your work 100 percent.
The reports of your computer hacking like the intrusion into James Rosen's
compter and phone tapping were examples of the police state that Obama and his inferiors ran on us for 8 years.
A compliant left wing media bias has destroyed the trust we once had
and the faith we held in reporting has been permanently severed .
Now through legislation masked as Hate speech protection the left wing mob had moved to make laws to thwart the first amendment
You have been a shining example of unbiased and fair reporting and I count on you to be a reasonable arbiter of fact.
One story that has not been reported is how Muller ran and investigation without investigating the participants in the Steel reports and there financial tracking that monies washed though the DNC to Steel, the Russian sources and Glen Simpson and how it was accounted to the Federal Election Commission .
Hillary Clinton had negotiated complete control of finances of the DNC
and was directly colluding with Russian sources and a former British agent
using funds to comment a hostile act on another candidate
The actions not only harmed Trump during the run up to the election but still haunts him to this day
Will you take on this investigation and tell us why she is not prosecuted for using foreign agent to effect an election and writing it off as legal fees ?
If not you who will ?
The media has given her a pass and to me if Trump or any other republican had done this the words treason would be applicable .
Thanks for listening .
When Mueller dropped the ball and tip toed around it he knew it was malfeasance
yet no one of any real stature has done a dive into it .
Happy New Year and thats for your years of awesome reporting !!

Sharyl, thank you. From context it sounded to me like you may have made a mistake reversing two key nouns when you said in item #2 something to the effect of "The FBI said that Barr did spy on the Trump campaign." Isn't it really the other way around, Barr's the one talking, right?
But perhaps more critically did Barr say it was the FBI that did the spying? Can you help us find the specifics of what Barr said?
Sharyl Attkisson says
If I did bit mistake... I will check. Barr said the FBI did spy on the Trump campaign. I have written some specifics of what Barr said in several articles.
