Alan J Wood says
WONDERFUL BOOK, STONEWALLED! I just had to express my admiration for your book. Of course I personally could read thousands of pages on Benghazi, Hillary, etc. But when you went into other subjects and the politics and machinations of the "news?" people, you never lost me for even one word! We need someone like you for President; PLEASE RUN! 🙂
Pat coffey says
I wonder if she is related to former anchor. Stan Ackinsonn
I am still reeling from reading Stonewalled! This should be required reading for every journalism major (if there still are journalism schools anymore.) The depths of dishonest self-serving government are worse than I ever imagined. Three words of advice for Ms. Attkisson: 1) hire a good bodyguard; 2) never stop writing the truth; 3) don't ever run for office.... we need you on the front lines to keep our country from sinking further into this swamp!!
Paula ZAJAC says
My thoughts exactly!!!!
Jack Mosby says
Your chosen candidate or not - Trump is becoming the conduit, the means for American’s to voice their angry screams of disgust over our corrupt crony capitalist government. The time is beyond late, it is now or never for the country. Trump is fed up, the country is fed up, and with his help it is our last chance to stick it to the oligarchs and “Bring America Back” to the people. Let’s all hope and pray he is locked on this time around to go all the way. When you stop and think about it, his age and personality (too old to give a damn) and financial independence from the Uniparty bosses are the only way to break their backs. All they have is money and ridicule to control the candidates. With Trump, neither one works. This includes the MSM. And it is sooo satisfying to watch the bastards squirm.
Jack--you've hit the nail directly on the head! No one has said it better.
Jack, Ditto from here.
Omgoodness. I have heard the voice of not only reason but the voice of SANITY. Trump is many of the things that he's been called, a sexist, a with a good ole boy way of doing business. Because he says what he thinks when the words come out of his mouth Unsvripted like the rest of us. When we JQPublic are talking about anything not just politics. We don't have a copy from a speech writer. We don't have a monitor which to follow on any given topic. Our words are not perfect, nor our sentences. Just normal conversation. That's why Trump has resonated with the public. I understand him, because it's plain folk speak. Not high and mightier than me conversation. He says what many of us don't have a way to make our thoughts and feelings heard. He's upset the perverbial Applecart. Hope I'm making an ounce of sense here. I'm elderly, worked very hard my whole life doing menial work. Laundry and ironing, motels, waitress etc. IM a proud conservative even if I haven't had the book learning many of you have had. I was not smart enough for college. That's okay I made my way in the world. It took every bit of our savings to care for my husbands care the last years of his life. Sold the house car, everything. I gave him the best care I could. Paying $7000.00 a month in a facility goes fast.plus all the extras needed and I had to live too. Now he has passed and I'm having to move to another state where I can get cheaper rent, and public transportation. I'm not complaining just explaining. I pray Mr. TRump beats the pants off that woman. Because I'd like to know how just HOW does someone who leaves the WHITE HOUSE and live like she has and be BROKE. That woman has no Freaking idea what BROKE IS? NONE? In sure do and millions of hard working Americans know what broke is.
How can she be running for president when she should be unqualified until all this underhanded stuff she and that varmet of a husband good ole boy Bill have done.He was worse than Trump in his fillanderings. Because he tarnished the White House and took advantage of a very young lady in that office. While Hillary was picking out the furniture and dishes she was going to take with her from the People's House. She's a thief , not a barower. She TOOK items from the White House that's stealing. She's corrupt. TRump might have faulted on bad business deals well so have I on a much smaller scale. Not Illegal, it's write offs and if people don't like it that why we have a congress to get laws amended and change things. TRump understands how to use the system leagaly. The Clintons are just down right liars and thieves and don't seem to care . The scum rinses off their backs like a duck coming out of the water. I have no way to explain how they get away with it all. BUT I am dam tired of it, and those like them. Those of us that are not privileged, and don't have what they have are not jealous of their life styles.. I was perfectly happy with our home and living on a dirt road with good neighbors and talking over the fences. It's a good enough life. BUt people like Hillary Clinton have no concept of real hunger and not having enough for utility bills and medical. I would like to have a back surgery that's around $15,000. And I would love to be able to have dental work done I need. But wishing will not get it done. I would never think about doing something I wanted or needed illegal to make it happen. Where is there sense of personal pride. They can't be Christian , Jew or any other religion. THey worship POWER greed and MONEY.. That's a ticket to hell. Not a place I wish to visit ever. So yes it's the lesser of two evils. But it's what we have to work with. IrbHillarybhasbworked so hard for children, then how can she even support the cruelty that is abortion. Ripping the unborn out of a woman's womb. That is murder no other word for it.if you kill a pregnant woman in a car crash that's your fault. You are charged with a double homicide. Now how can you have that both ways. You can't , it's murder. I knownyoungbwomenntryingbto have babies and they cry because they can't conceive. Many people adopt because there aren't enough new borns to adopt anymore. We need to help women who need an alternative to abortion. There is plenty of organizations that need funding that want to help women out of bad situations I know of some and I have helped some myself. We can't go into history being known for such a great nation that we are, be remembered for killing innocent babies.snatching their little lives away before it begins. Babies that survive abortions are left to die with no help to breath or wrapped to keep them from gett hypothermia. What kind of nation have we become? That is just, it does not compute in my head. At least Mr. TRump has seen this is so wrong. No doubt he loves his children and he has provided for them and their mothers. So for me that is reason enough for my vote. But I think he will be the kind ofmPresident that truly wants to brings industry back to this country for the people. I truly believe that. I'm praying for all of us.I believe with all my heart if the Supreme Court and the federal judges that will be elected will for ever change our country into a socialist country, it will never get turned around. Never. Because there will be few people left that will remember what a Rebublic is. We will all be dead to tell the story. The history is being rewritten right now. It's not even that it's not true. The HISTORY of our nation has been altered because so much has been omitted in school books. I might not have a degree but I remember my history from school. Ask young people today and they say I've never heard that. 8 never heard that.its dam scary to me. We must save our constitution,and the knowledge our founding fathers left for us. We should have an American Flag made in AMerica in every classroom. Hanging outside every house. Not only on holidays but everyday. Kids graduating today in some parts of our country don't know the pledge of allegiance, don't know to stop at attention when the flag is being raised and retired at night.never leave a flag out in the rain or dark unless there is a light on it. I didn't go to college to learn this. I learned this as a child. We did these things everyday. It imply takes ONE PERSON to start a movement. We always had a short prayer everyday in school. MADILINE MURRY O'HARE single handedly got prayer removed from schools. One person. She was a committed Atheist. The young are not being given the tools to protect themselves and to protect our way of life our freedoms that so many admire us for. They can't work to defend what has made us great in America if they are never taught it to begin with. OUr conservative values are being lost everyday. HILLARY And the now democrats are so far left it's almost unAmerican. That's just how I see it. I apologize for ranting. But I'm so sick of all the corruption and allegations being thrown around the world about this great country. I love the United States of America. We were proud to hang our flag out everyday. We were great full for what we had meager though it was at times. We were still thankful for our lives our children's lives and for their futures. I didn't feel that way right now. I hope Trump gets elected and goes in the white house and cleans up a lot of the mess that the Obama administration will leave behind. I hope he gets a house and senate that will help him and not stay in the gridlock we've seen the last almost 8 years. Enough.MR. TRump and Pence must save us here at home and not OBAMAS legacy but the Legacy of these United States.more importantly save the country for the many who have fought and died for her, around the world for FREEDOM., I hope Jack and Wendy and Alan that I did understand and agreed with you. Cause it's time to kick ass. Enough of the same ole political jargon that leads nowhere and gets nothing done. DOnald Trump is out there working his ass off and spending his own money for CHANGE. HIlliary has been in hiding since Sept. Before she was out where with the Hollywierd elites RAISING money not spending her own money. DOnald Trump has been putting his money where is mouth is... I praying for his election. He must takenPennsylvania I understand . So pray for those states he needs the electoral college votes if you don't pray then have positive thoughts and vibes and picture those states.mindont know how that works so I don't know how to say it. Not casting dispersions honest. Okay vote. I'm sending in my early ballot tomorrow. MAY the God or Higher Power you believe in Bless you and all whom you hold dear. Is that politically correct enough. Light humor here. I'm praying for Mr. TRump and Mike Pence. Gads I'm tired just watching and reading about this election. TRump is like the energizer bunny. He just keeps on going . Yahoo !!!!! Dam Im tired writing this.
David Lee says
You said it. Hillary is indebted to the illuminati and the satanic occultists. She will take us (theU.S.) on a trainride to hell. You (we) won't be able to get off of ,ever. She said we have to get away from having religion and religous beliefs affect our decisions. Our Country was founded by Christian, God fearing people and that is the course that we should stay.GOD BLESS AMERICA.
Herman Munster says
This is a bot and written by someone in the Republican Party or Trump’s inner circle.
Richard Rae says
Ahh he is old and Washington still needs to get back into the hands of the Lord
Jim Mooney says
Trump actually has a more sane foreign policy vis-a-vis Russia than Obama. All Obama wants to do is poke the bear into a corner over a Nazi coup we funded. The media is outright lying about Crimea, which was a free self-determination plebiscite, the same as Scotlands. Yet they persist in calling it an invasion.
Poking the nuclear bear in their own backyard, when we went nuts over Cuba, is Not a good idea. Trump says he'd deal with Putin. Obama just threatens and insults him. His foreign policy stinks.
Jim Intotally agree great points.The Jacobites lost their lives and culture and their language. It's trying to be revived in Scotland but the young don't seem interested sadly. It must be taught from infancy.
Yes I agree on the Crimea. I have good friend from over there. She lives here now. What she has told me about even their health care is so unbelievable. Ludmila told me she understands what Freedom means now. She will never go back to Russia or see Crimea again.
Mark Greenbaum says
Crony capitalism? Trump IS crony capitalism. He buys politicians, he's said so in interviews.
Paul Kersey says
From what I know of the definition of crony-capitalism it's only considered that when the product or service is less than the best available. This would not be the case if the Trump organization won a contract because we all know his organization provides world-class products and services.
Ted Yost says
The point Mr. Greenbaum, is that the politicians are for sale, everyone buys them. It is that part of the system that needs to be fixed. Term limits for Senators, and Congress would be an excellent place to start
Eric Bischoff says
We don't need Term Limits, that's what elections are for. Term limits would deprive us of great politicians we love to keep around. What we need is to get money out of politics. Reverse Citizens United. Support Move To Amend. Support Public Campaign financing. Demand Proportional Representation Voting. Pre register the entire population. Younger age voting. Open Debates for all parties. Make ALEC illegal.
There are NO "great politicians"- now the application of the word "politician" implies crooked deals, power-mongering, self-serving. What the US needs are true STATESMEN, who really design (limited) legislation to help make lives of the general citizenry stable in the best possible way. We don't have many in Congress who are not "bought"; they don't have a moral compass by which they develop legislation, alliances or personal conduct.
Laura Fisher Alvarez says
@Jack Mosby July 19,2015
I could have written that myself word for word.
Jack he surely fooled you my friend, I honestly hope I'm wrong, but after only 4 days it doesn't appear I am.
greg gamble says
Trump is not able to bring America back to your vision of where it should have been to begin with. Trumps entire select group of insiders are nothing more than cronies and wall street elites. He has changed nothing. It is as corrupt as ever in the White House. He is not going to break anyones backs Jack. He will be rendered ineffective within 6 months. He has split your party and the country. Has disgraced the office of the President and has ties to Russia. Are you an American Jack?
Wow. Everything you just described has been going on for YEARS! Of course every President will have "insiders." That is the point. Those "insiders" are people who the President (no matter WHO it is) trust. It is harder for President Trump because most of the people he trusts are missing a key component: politics. However, that is the REASON he chose them. Fresh faces to work on the things that need to be done, not work on the things the lobbyists and their cronies (the Congress) want done. As for his ties to Russia? NO more than any other President has to countries like that. Biden has ties to China, Obama had ties to China through Biden. If those ties influence policy (Like Clinton's did) in FAVOR of them, then that is bad. If the ties don't influence policy in favor of them, then that is not bad. Just because somebody disagrees with you, does not mean they are not American.
He is Antichrist.
Paula ZAJAC says
Jack, such an absolute truth you have spoken and look how long ago you knew this!
Michael Hess says
Jack, Outstandingly true analysis. Trump can't make America great again without our help. MBH
Steve Silverman says
The only question I have is what are you as a concerned American doing personally to Make America Great: voting,protesting,organizing ???
Jack, I couldn't have said it better!
butch Gordo says
Is this the same Jack Mosby from Yerington NV, finest US Army NCO I've ever known?
Jerry Kimbro says
Dear Ms. Attiksson,
How wonderful to finally read a journalist who really reports the news without a bias- liberal or conservative. You are so unique and wonderful. IF only the rest of the journalists would stay true to the ethics of journalism- this world would be a much better place! Thank you for all your work and dedication!
Jerry can you tell me how I can find where Miss Akkison can be seen or heard. I loved her book and watched her on CBS. But I'm on Dish and tried to find her show and nothing came up. WHere is the network she is currently on. My first time posting here. I did a search and it brought me here. Many good thoughts and exchanges. I'm not tech savvy at all.
I would appreciate it. Thank you.
Bill Geers says
As a fellow Gator - Gator Nation should be proud of you for standing firm to the principles of unbiased journalism. If Trump is elected you should be his press secretary! God bless you and your family Sheryl and Go Gators!
mike Cavanaugh says
Will you marry...or at least go out with me !!!
Stumbled on the Trump/Post article and it is a fantastic piece of journalism. The media in this country is at a scary level as far as the amount of power they have over the public. They can, and do everything they can to impact mainstream opinion of everything from baby mice to something as important as a presidential election.
Something really needs to be done control these "devil made me do it" egomaniacs
Dinner next Saturday ?
Scott McMurtrie says
Ever since you came out against CBS I have been following your work, have seen you a number of times on various FOX shows, I am very impressed.
I apparently missed your work prior to you leaving CBS, but am so very impressed how you report honestly.
If I may also add respectably, my heart sings when i hear your voice, its a bonus that you also just happen to be a very beautiful woman
Gerald Jung says
Mrs. Atkisson, Thanks for your outstanding work on CBS as anchor, correspondent; American media really needs news in the best way, impartial, correct, without partisanship.
Too many of us have to look to Reuters, Deutsch Welle, France 24 for Journalism. You are in their ranks.
Ditto. I watch them too. Just lost PIVOT tv in America. Saw a lot I would have not been aware of. Love ReDactded. Good points and analysis. Of course HUMOR. Boy we need to laugh more in this country.
maurice s. devine says
would like to see you do more tv, you truly have something too offer. will look forward to your new show, also do you do speaking engagements ? have a good day!!!
D.O. duke Lipensky says
She seems to be smart without being abusive. We used to call that being a lady.
Guy Cooper says
I look forward to watching your new program.
In case I will ask you too. Do you know where Sharyls new show is and how to find it on DISH. . Thanks.
The list of TV affiliates can be found under "About" at http://www.FullMeasure.news If you don't have an affiliate, you can watch live online at http://www.fullmeasure.news on Sundays at 9:30a ET or replays there anytime! Thanks
Urgent needs of unpolitical correctness, a straight talk and unbiased professional journalists.
Paul Jessen says
Ms. Attkisson bravo on your book "Stonewalled!"
I wish there were more reporters like yourself who are not afraid of doing your job by reporting the truth about corrupt politicians and their cronies.
If we do not have people stand up for the truth and hold these people accountable for their transgressions we will allow evil to take us to Orwell's world of 1984!
God Bless you and your family and all the best in your new endeavors!
John Wroten says
Keep up the good work.
Frank M. Hoffman Sr. says
Here is a story for you to check on:
Why did Richard Blum - owner CRI - husband of Diane (different name for a reason) Feinstein (liberal Democrat Senator ( who also supports Sanctuary Cities - San Francisco ) get the non-bid exclusive contract for selling 56 Postal Properties (estimated worth - $19 Billion) deemed no longer needed. These properties bought by Taxpayer monies and owned by Postal Service.(which has lost $1197 in the last 10 Years). He will be paid commission from 2% to 6% and will potentially have a commission value of $950 million to $1.1 billion.
Corruption at its best.
Terri Kirk says
Frank, you need to get your facts correct before posting. Here is a blurp from Factcheck.org.
It is true that Richard Blum has a financial relationship with the real estate firm contracted to sell United States Postal Service properties. However, this viral email gets some details — including the name of the real estate company — wrong.
In July 2011, the Postal Service entered into an exclusive contract with the real estate firm CB Richard Ellis Group Inc. (CBRE) to sell surplus Postal Service properties. Blum, Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s husband, is the chairman of the company’s board of directors. As a member of the board of directors, he received $157,000 in cash and stock awards from CBRE Group in 2012. His investment firm, Blum Capital Partners, L.P., is also the real estate firm’s fifth largest institutional shareholder. As of May 2013, it held more than 15 million shares worth an estimated $3 billion. However, this amounts to about 4.5 percent of CBRE Group’s total shares. CBRE Group is the largest commercial real estate firm in the world. Its Postal Service contract is responsible for a fraction of that revenue, and just a fraction of that fraction is passed on to shareholders.
The email suggests Feinstein — described as a “powerful U.S. Senator from San Francisco” — misused her office to secure a “sweet deal” for her husband. But there is no evidence of that.
Sue Brennan, a Postal Service spokeswoman, told us in an email that seven firms participated in a competitive bidding process. She said the Postal Service chose CBRE Group because it “was the contractor with the best overall organization, capability and experience.”
Feinstein’s spokesman, Brian Weiss, addressed questions about the contract in a February 2013 article in the San Francisco Chronicle:
You can read the full article on the site
Matt McIntyre says
Terri, Mr. Blum's company was awarded a sweet deal for rebuilding some of Iraq's infrastructure after being invaded. Coincidence? This real estate deal with the USPO might produce only a "fraction" of the company's revenue, but a fraction of a fraction of multi-billions of dollars in real estate sales is still going to be a whopper of a dividend. The amount isn't important; what matters is the fact that Blum repeatedly gets the inside scoop on big deals because his wife is one of the old cronies inside the beltway. That is not a coincidence.
Michael Gibbons says
Hello, Mrs. Attkisson - my name is Mike Gibbons. I'm a disabled/retired New York State Court Officer that was selectively persecuted just for requesting a transfer to a workplace closer to home after being diagnosed with major illnesses that eventually required major surgery. I was refused that lawful transfer, exasperating my already serious conditions, and that violates the Federal ADA which requires that an accommodation be granted and this should be looked into. I have coveted information about how the NYS Office of Court Administration takes it's marching orders from a corrupt, Union President and local politician. A clear violation of AFL/CIO national and local rules. I can promise a ground shaking scandal within city/state politics with this information. Please consider helping me in my quest for justice. Thank you so much.

Crayons Ready? Let's Begin! Please reveal everyone's true colors. You may be the last true investigative journalist left in the Western Hemisphere. Courage, Integrity, and common sense - I love it!
A couple of my favorite quotes -
"The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their proper name." - Confucius
When those in power adopt plunder as their preferred method of control and rule, slowly but surely, they will pervert the legal system to authorize it and create a moral code that glorifies it. - Frederic Bastiat paraphrased
Great quotes. Notice in this stream, how there are some who try diverting the discussion from the issues that Sharyl has worked so hard to bring to the public.
Bob Crossett says
I hope you continue to report onK-street . The special interest laws and rules [fedral and local} are destroying the middle class.
Jim Bax says
Excellent report this morning. As a Florida Gator and former long time resident of Longboat Key I take special pleasure in your success. One of your viewers suggested that you expose the incestuous relationships between doctors and big pharm. Working in positions that included Secretary of Florida HRS and Professor and Director of the FSU Institute of Health and Human Services Research I further suggest that you dig a little deeper to find the facilitators of the sordid public rip off. Check out the role of the Pharma lobbyists AKA bundlers. Look into their gifts to Universities and their affiliates. See how these power brokers place their friends on policy making board to influence outcomes. See how they act to stifle critical reports. Examine the use of reactions meds to define behavioral disorders. Check out the use of powerful reputable inhibitors with non FDA approved groups, eg children. Government approved MH we vices provide just enough money so the only MH function a provider can perform is to write a
Prescription. On the other hand, any pediatrician can prescribe a med , and often his own soup of powerful meds without my special trading. Psychiatrists admit that the human brain is largely unexplored yet they continue pour.chemicals into brains that they don't understand. Sorry for the rant.

Thank you for your hard work in bringing unknown facts of our corrupt public officials which I am quite sure there are many of them, then and only then the people can make up their minds to either re-elect them or get rid of the dishonest scum that they are. Thanks again and don't give up, the honest people are behind you 100 percent

I remember Sharyl Attkisson as she worked in Tampa (big hair era). She was beautiful then and even more so now with her classic features; her terrific writing and reporting compliments her beauty-a dynamite combination. Sharyl is in a class by herself.
Thomas Macdonald M.D. says
Thank you for making a significant contribution to modern journalism. I feel that you are reporting with integrity and honesty and without partisan persuasion.
E. Denise Caldon Sorkness says
As a Veterans Widow since 1996 and Georgia Whistleblower since 2008 following 15 years of dedicated and "exceeds expectations" annual evaluations, I was terminated just 9 days following my submitting in writing my refusal to cross criminal, fiscal and ethical lines requested for three years by the college president. The evidence of malfeasance by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (a.k.a. "The Southern Mafia") is confirmed in Depositions, Affidavits and Discovery documents and kept sealed from public view by Georgia's State Attorney General Sam Olens who filed four "Responses in Opposition" to their release via lifting of Protective Orders. I have copies of all the sealed documents. I was told by a source, The Atlanta Journal "cannot touch my story." Jeff Chirico, formerly with CBS Atlanta, brought his camera team to Macon and released one of many other investigative reports: http://www.cbsatlanta.com/story/23973296/former-employee-board-of-regents-hiding-records
We commend you, Sharyl, and ask you to consider meeting with me, Sabrina Smith (Statewide Chairman of Georgia Watchdogs), et al. Three requests have been submitted to Georgia Governor Nathan Deal to appoint a Special Investigator given the "Conflict of Interest" by Attorney General Sam Olens. Governor Deal will not respond.
K.C. Tuckness says
Stonewalled was absolutly very well written. You gave me the courage and confidence to continue on with my personal investigation regarding mortgage fraud. I am a homeowner that Bank of America sent contractors into my home and made changes that I certainly was not made aware of. After investigating other homeowners in my township, I realized that I was NOT the only homeowner that was violated by breaking and entering into our homes without prior approval. Google Breaks Breaking into Houses or watch 99 Homes! We must come to agreement that the banksters STOP violating our privacy rights. Thanks Sharyl!

Hi, Stonewalled is excellent as is your other work.
I have a popular online video show called Dark Journalist and I wonder if you would be available to come on and discuss your fascinating concept of "Astroturfing." We could do the interview over Skype. Here is a recent episode with Former HUD Secretary Fitts dealing with false memes in the media: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDrHswYnTFw
I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you - Daniel
Dennis Deal says
I can't verbalize the extent to which I respect the Journalistic Ethics you displayed by quitting the CBS News Network due to its biased editorial positions. You have so many Journalistic awards that you know, of course, you'll be swept off the market very quickly by a the type of network which reports, not edortalizes or ignores legitimate important stories, as well as for among the reasons mentioned above. It's all about your employer not consistently trying to be part of the story rather than reporting it and letting us, the great unwashed, arrive at our own conclusions. You have a great career, the end of which is not even in sight. God bless.
Your presentation of the lecture at Nevada University that has a YouTube video is sooooo strong !! Well structured and a very thorough analysis of the subject. Please run for President of the USA.
Love and regards from The Netherlands, Jan.

Sharyl; Thank God for people like you. I am in the process of finisshing your book; paper edition and this morning went back to page 366 and your comments on whistle blowers that may have saved lives and how many were treated. This country is on the way to the trash can unless we make some major changes that reflect TRUTH. God bless,
Thanks for the book.......
David Yates says
Read and very much enjoyed "Stonewalled" this past week. Your experiences in journalism echo my own experiences in broadcasting and at the University of Illinois for the past 35 years.
I wonder if you have seen this article regarding Benghazi emails to Hillary Clinton regarding the Saudis Financing the Benghazi attacks: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-03-09/missing-clinton-e-mail-claims-saudis-financed-benghazi-attacks
This was just posted today.
Best wishes to you,
I don't know how common it is but I've long stopped watching/listening to News. I prefer to read. Even with interviews I prefer the transcripts.
Making transcripts of your Full Measure episodes available - even weeks after - would be great.
We are posting most transcripts now with the videos at FUllMeasure.news Thank you
Alan Jamison says
Thank you for uncovering some serious eye openers!
Lou Zimmer says
You are a rare breed indeed. We need more journalists of your caliber. Your work is always an insightful, enlightening read.

Why does Hillary Clinton support my Human Rights Abuse?
In 8 years of writing not one Journalist or Gov member has ever contacted me or reported me. Hillary Clinton who does not have one idea better than mine continues to ignore my ideas. Why?
About 8 years ago in Sydney my life became a living Hell- without my consent or any warning. The ANZ Bank in Australia illegally evicted me from my homes without any notice - one home was only £3500 in arrears the other £7000. Who gets evicted for that small amount? All my poetry, my story Angel, my ideas, stories, songs and fashion designs and concepts were, I was told, stolen and copied and millions made out of them and me. The Australian Gov will not let me have my home, or 5 years of writing and all my possessions unless I go back to prove who I am. My business Sydney Boat Sales which I had operated for 12 years suddenly lost all its customers and all the boats were removed from my marina on Sydney Harbor. Now for the third time in 3 years I am being told I have to have my Mental Health assessed as I am considered to be a physical threat to David Cameron. How? With what? I live at home looking after my 87 year old mum.
This is what happens when we are being led by disfunctional people like the Clintons. They will break the laws and everyone else is the fall guy. The Clintons don't set the standards to work for America because for a long time, they have looked out for themselves. They are weasels. Look at the reputation of UN Ambassador Rice and now Lynch, the Clintons ambushed their credentials. Is hillary really working to improve the working status of women? No!
Sharyl, you need to work for Fox and also write for the websites who want to hear the truth as well as for their readers. May your voice continue to be heard!!!!!
Todd Raymond says
Although there is no doubt that Ms. Attkisson is an investigative reporter of the highest caliber and that her TEDx talk was insightful, it's also glaringly apparent that she favors right wing politicians. Her interview with Trump was a exhibition of weak journalism absent of any substantial inquiry for which she is known. During the interview, Trump washes over a sweeping range of domestic and foreign policy issues that are so outlandish that they approached the absurd. Not once did Ms. Attkisson press Trump for specifics. For instance, when referring to Trumps comments on North Korea and our troops stationed there and his "plan" to remove them or have the South Korean's pay for the costs, she didn't follow up with what ramifications might result if the troops were pulled or if we, as a government set a a policy of "pay for play" military presence. Those troops are there for US security first and foremost. When she asked Trump to explain his comments on punishing women for getting an abortion, she accepted his wishy washy explanation without pressing him on whether "punishment" was even legal if abortion is legal. She accepted his glossed over explanation about his use of the word "punishment" was really equated with the stress that a woman endures during such a procedure. Truly pathetic. Her interview with Trump was clearly sympathetic to her personal political views and proves the point that if someone does not stand up to a person who makes repeated racist and bigoted statements, they are, themselves complicit with racism and bigotry. Ms. Attkisson's show was also wrought with sound technical difficulties and points to a show that is being run by amateurs and speaks to her ineptitude within the political investigative arena. In short, her interview was sympathetic to Trump's rise because, she did not demand specifics to what are truly frightening proposals for a Trump administration. Ms. Attkisson should stick to her strong suit of investigative reporting on the pharma industry and leave the serious political journalism to those that are not so blatantly biased in their political leanings. Her interview with Trump was a sad effort to kick start a show that is clearly DOA and destined to flounder in the lower depths of right wing internet, sub-par programming.
Mike Schuerger Sr says
I am impressed enough that I will look for _Stonewalled_
But I am dropping this to note that I think some guys went with the 8th Air Force over Europe before your time, in aircraft like B-17s and B-24s. USAF Museum at Wright-Patterson in Dayton, OH would probably know.
Envy you getting to go in a B-52 and an F-15 though. Way too cool not to envy.

Sharyl - you left MSM to preserve your journalistic integrity. It puts you in a unique position of high respect by all people. Currently there is a complete blackout of news by MSM coming out of western Haiti in the wake of hurricane Matthew. Millionaire patriot Gary Heavin is flying in food, doctors, medics at his own expense in an effort to save as many people as he can. PLEASE do your own research - Your voice would lend the credibility needed to bring attention to the urgent needs of the poorest people in our hemisphere. Riverview Ram Nation - 78
As my Mother's era would say, "you're a tough young broad". Thank you! Apologies, for what this Administration has put you through. Exemplary reporting.
Tim Hodge says
On your topic of the outrageous cost of college, you should research Grove City College in Pennsylvania. They do it right by holding down costs and giving students a clear picture of their expenses before they attend. At the same time, Grove City's academics are second to none with a real 97% placement rate for graduates.
Thanks for the great investigative work.

IT IS WITHOUT A DOUBT PRESIDENT TRUMP SHOULD INVESTIGATE HOMELAND SECURIY AND THE CIA ABOUT THEIR TATICS ESPECILLALY ON THE FIRST AMENDMENT, I AMA VICTMAN AS WERE YOU BUT I DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY OR FRIENDS TO FIGHT THEM, SO I SUFFER, HAWAII IS ONE OF THE WORST STATES IN AMERICA COMPLETELY CONTROLLED BY THE DEMORATS NO REPUBLICANS IN OFFICE HAWAII IS LIKE SWEDEN ANYONE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING FREE COMES HERE
Bob Reich says
Dear Ms. Attkisson:
By chance I caught your story on TV about the variance in drug costs from pharmacy to pharmacy. I have to say I was somewhat shocked that you either are unaware or chose not to mention sites like "GoodRx" (web or app) that enable customers to find the lowest price in their city in - seriously - ten seconds! I would encourage you to download that app to see its utility and then, perhaps, follow up on your previous reporting.
Bob Barwig says

Peter S says
Ms. Attkisson, I recommend you go watch the movie that opened this weekend, the one about Diana Prince. If you can get her to go with you, watch it with the great Sibel Edmonds . . .
David Williams says
For ordinary US citizens, Sharyl Attkisson is exactly what media needs. It is not the role of the "free" press to selectively report the news or the facts. It is not the role of any media to take sides in political discussion. Rather, the ONLY role of media is to report facts to a here-to-fore trusting American public. But as the media has changed from factual to agenda reporting, the American public will also begin to change. Say what you want, but Donald Trump has done more to bring the bias and selective narratives of big media to the attention of the American public than anyone ever has. Ms. Attkisson is a pure investigative journalist the kind of which we all must value even more these days. Here's wishing continued to success to her and that she will continue to serve as an inspiration to future journalists who care about their obligations to the American public.
Doug Simerly says
I record Full Measure every week, so I can see your show when I get home. I am about to start The Smear, it is next in the queue. I missed you when you came to Portland, maybe next book I can see you and get your autograph.
Thank you for being a real journalist, in the days of fake news, and I have shared your Ted talk on Astroturf with anyone who will listen, and a bunch of people have listened. Thanks Sharyl!
Ken V says
The story you tell in the Epilogue to The Smear about Jessikka Aro is a higher tech version of what happened to Frederick Forsythe during his reporting of the Biafra conflict. He describes it in his autobiography: The Outsider: My Life in Intrigue. The British government and press discredited him because the story he was telling differed from the official policy.
Nikola Pasic says
I wonder what your thoughts are/were on the war in the Former Yugoslavia?
I am of Serbian background but was born and live in Canada. From all the reporting and then learning from relatives and Canadian Military personnel who had been there a narrative was definitely being propagated. Christiane Amanpour and her State dept. spokesman husband were at the centre of it.
THat was my introduction to media manipulation and PR firms and lies from politicians like Madeleine Albright....more people should have their "bubbles" burst. Thanks for doing that!!!
George Colborn says
There are only two (I know) worthy of the title "Investigative Journalist" today, Sharyl Attkisson and Judith Miller - maybe I'll add Jeff Gerth (from hearing about him in "Smear", which I just bought in Barnes and Noble.) To those, my most sincere THANK YOU!
I've been around for 21 election cycles (watching 19 - you know Yogi Berra said, 'you can observe a lot, just by watching'), remembering my Creative Writing English teacher saying we should read the New York Times and the Herald Tribune to get good information (I am among the many who know how that turned out, remember Walter Lippman) and now saying BRAVA to you, Sharyl, for helping the average Jane and Joe (so busy working for the kids, paying taxes) to more understanding of the mechanism (and names behind) the BS assault which much of the MSM heaps on us every day.
doug van hulle says
for sharyl, my name is doug van hulle. i live in flushing michigan. i am a retired viet nam vet marine and i enjoy you on sunday mornings and i just bought 2 of your books.
you are absolutly great in every way. outstanding presentations and a joy to watch and listen to on tv.
i wish and hope you get more air time on tv. maybe go to fox news.
Paul Romsky says
I just tuned into Comet Tv for the first time and saw a commercial for your show "Full Measure". I have a lot of respect for you because you are one of the truly unbiased reporters and admit the media is very liberal. I read your Bio, I think you anchored WCBS news in the very early hours of the morning in the 1990's, or am I mistaken. I will be sure to watch your show.
FYI, the link to "Alleged waste, fraud or abuse of 9/11 donated funds July 29, 2002" on the page https://sattkisson.wpengine.com/2014/05/12/red-cross-links/ redirects to a non-existent page. I was interested to find this original story, and I thought others may as well. I just discovered your page. Thanks for being one of the few examples of genuinely intrepid investigative journalists.
It appears your investigative research and resulting conclusions are significant. May you always find inspiration and continue trying to educate folks.
My frustration is why aren't your efforts exposing the rampant corruption within our Nation making a difference? Its not widely disseminated to the public. Conservatives "NEVER" get fired up like the "Brownshirt Democrats"! Even if they did corrupt news agencies always twist and condemn conservatives.
Democrat Political Operatives (Yes they are Paid - expose that!) get away with anything they do! Secret Org's and People trying to destroy America! Expose that! Weapon Caches of the Nation of Islam - strategies they have for Civil War, Unrest! Expose that! Gun confiscation agenda to control the public - Expose who, when, how! Even if you did, nothing good would happen. I applaud your work but am afraid no one's listening.

Lyme disease with its life-altering/life-threatening consequences has been misclassified as a low-risk and non-urgent health issue. Editorial censorship of the truth insures the severity of Lyme disease remains well hidden from the worldwide medical community and general public while the three authors of the commentary recently published in the American Journal of Medicine compare Lyme to the aches and pains of daily living and claim everyone with Lyme will test positive.

Saw you today on Cspan saying birther subject was Smear started by Clinton’s. My question is what does the term birther mean? Does it mean where he was born, name of hospital, forged pdf, Conn SS number Boehnel, Pakistan trip, adopted and name change to Soetero, Selective. Service number, sealed school records, Frank Marshal DAVIS, religion, sexual orientation ... if all of this has been sorted out where do you say it was?
Edmond Day says
‘The Smear” by Sharyl Attkisson should be center piece in political science, civics, government, whatever we call ‘history’ today. As a candidate & low level political operative I can attest to Sharyl’s revelations.
Atheist, secularist, social progressives, communist, Satanist, do not be concerned, America is not a Judeo-Christian nation. We started out that way but have fallen.
The Ten commandments, number 9 is, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor”. No political entity practices number 9. Governor love potion number 9 is the benchmark for American morality, not the 9th Commandment. Commandments 1-8 & 10 are observed infrequently.
Paying lip service to Judeo-Christian values is a hell if a lot easier than being a practicing Judeo-Christian.
Technology & a failure in personal morality have destroyed any claim America has to Judeo-Christian values.
Commandment number 1 is “Thou shalt have no other gods before us”. Given America’s failure to practice any semblances to the commandments, who’s birth are we celebrating at Christmas?
A few years ago a madam who provided girls to numerous Democrats & Republicans in Washington died. Her death help keep secrets. The madam stated she had more ‘normal’ Democrats as customers but the Republicans were kinkier, lots of dress up. I believe number 7, “Thou shalt not commit adultery” was not being obeyed. It is fair to say many politicians in Washington are sex pigs & those who are not keep their mouths shut. Go along to get along.
Repeat, who’s birth are we celebrating on December 25th? If you celebrate Jesus’s birth then you should be practicing the Ten Commandments. If you believe in one you must practice the other.
Sharyl Attkisson was one of my favorite news reporters back in the 90s , a beautiful lady who covered stories well. 🙂
TODD BARTELS says
I have been waiting to hear the outcome of the Government spying on you, etc. Can you direct me to a link on the status of your lawsuit and how exactly the government gained access to your computer... ? Love your reporting.
The "network" which you suspect might exist and which you just discussed on Mike Gallagher's show includes the courts. Very hard to believe but I believe I have seen concrete evidence of collusion between courts and DOJ.
I used to do investigations myself; worked informally with federal law enforcement.
I don't say such things lightly. I have seen evidence of ex parte contacts which are absolutely wrong.
I think the barriers and ethical constraints against such conduct are fraying--seriously.
Wish you had real email address and not just a dialogue box or whatever this thing is.

I truly miss your show, it was always a pleasant treat to have on Sunday morning. There is nothing better than truth in reporting and you were always on top of it. I was always puzzled by CBS letting you be so honest, because I always felt they were liberals.
Miss your show, please come back.
Mr. Dana W. Carlson says
Yeah, I would just like to tell Ms. Attkisson to get off her high horse. She's starting to believe her own hype by acting as if she's somehow one notch above everyone else. She isn't. Knock off the snooty, self-serving nonsense. Trump is right, up to a point with regard to fake news. Ms. Attkisson can NEVER (repeat: NEVER) hold a candle to Barbara Walters and other pioneers. Anyone who tells me that they offer what no one else can has ulterior motives and hidden agendas. I don't rely on a single source for news. There's some funny business going on here.

Is it OK to say I think you're a goddess, or at least an avatar?
I was wondering after reading your bio, if you have had 2nd thoughts about the bombing of Kosovo, given that it was the first front in the modern Muslim invasion of Europe?
William Garrett says
This may be a bit off topic but I know of no other means to voice a concern and I hope you find it worth consideration. Regarding the tariff imposition on China imports, I found an importer, Grizzly, Inc., who has stated that they are immediately charging 25% tariff fee on all imported products. This includes product they already have in stock which was imported BEFORE the new tariff. They also state that they will reduce the tariff fee when and if it is recinded and when they have depleted their stock upon which it was imposed. This seems to give sellers a way to increase their profits by 25% by charging a fee on product imported BEFORE the tariff imposition.
Jim Slavicek says
Ted Talks has always struck me as inherently deceptive in its 15 minute approach to understanding, and to be honest I dumped all immediate media decades ago, around the time I ran into Chomsky.
However, I believe the '96 telecommunications act that killed the public mandate was what turned all traditional news organizations into nothing more than mouthpieces for the corporations that control them. So the idea of fake news, accuracy, etc. pale before the reality of perception management and the ignoring of any content not leading towards higher ratings, enhancement of power and position, etc.
Not having known of or researched you, and before I need to move on to the daily struggle, I'd point you in the direction of Radio4All.net and independent journalists in general that offer accurate information in context. People like Nomi Klein, Chris Hedges, Mark Crispin Miller, Thomas Frank and yes, people like Jimmy Dore and Max Keiser. They mostly work for nothing and promote only the betterment of humanity through appealing to the better angels or our nature from a basis of equity and decency.
They remind me daily that all is not lost. I thank you for your contributions to the cause. Well done.
Liza Scheer says
Hi, could I meet with you sometime? I also have problems with my email hacked, cellphone hacked, etc. Therefore meeting in person is the best option. I am coming to Washington, DC for personal business around Sept. 12th, 2018. I can change the date if that is more convenient for you. Would there be any way we could meet? I feel I should not leave my real name, as that would undoubtedly trigger more hacking.
Chris Reardon says
I love watching interviews with you, especially when you are being interviewed about your books "Stonewalled" and "The Smear". Having said that, I found it painful listening to the C-SPAN interview of you by Erik Wemple of WaPo. He spent waaaay too much time listening to the sound of his own voice and really undercut many of the points you were trying to make that are in you book. C-SPAN should be ashamed for getting that guy to interview you...he clearly has his own agenda!
Relative to your mission, perhaps you may find the following research interesting:
PLEASE DO INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING ON DR. FORD'S ACCUSATION AGAINST JUDGE KAVANAUGH! I don't trust the FBI right now. I believe Dr. Ford's trauma caused her to black out her accuser's face (she wears coke bottle glasses which could have been knocked off in the attack, or perhaps she was not wearing her contacts after swimming), though I believe that Mark Judge WAS there and knows who did do it. Call Sen Whitehouse's bluff: start by investigating Judge Kavanaugh's July 1, 1982 entry of a gathering at "Timmy's" that includes the 3 people in her allegation + a possible 4th boy (the rest of the boys might have come to the gathering after she ran out). Their yearbook contains their home addresses at the time & you could see if the layout of Timmy's matches her description. I HAVE CONFIRMED that Chris "Squee" Garrett's house layout fits Dr. Ford's story PERFECTLY: no bathroom on 1st floor, requiring Dr. Ford to go to 2nd floor, narrow stairway up from small living room, bedroom at top with 2 beds which is across the hall from a bathroom, & the house is 1/2 mile from the country club. Chris Garrett was the boy Dr. Ford briefly dated, the older brother of a boy she knew from the country club, and other than Mark Judge, was her 1 connection to Georgetown Prep, with the others being merely the "friends of"). I'd also look at Garrett's younger brother. One Mark Judge friend said that Judge probably blacked out the entire year of 1982, which he admits in his memoirs. If Dr. Ford is right, and he blanched upon seeing her later at Safeway, then HE REMEMBERS. In his defense (justifying perhaps immunity), even in his drunkenness, Dr. Ford said he was ambivalent and his jumping on them led to her escape. I believe he knows who did it. Also interview those who knew Dr. Ford back in high school - maybe you'll find clues to this terrible mystery. PLEASE HELP CLEAR JUDGE KAVANAUGH'S NAME & DR FORD'S MEMORY, and in the process, you can stop the mob who will stop at nothing to destroy what's left of this man's life.

Have you considered whether your own computer intrusion experience at the direction of the U.S. Government might have some connection to the INSLAW Affair, i.e., the Department of Justice's covert misappropriation of the PROMIS case management software from INSLAW, starting during the first term of the Reagan Administration, for use in tracking the production of U.S. intelligence information and for the collection
of intelligence information from U.S. and foreign government users of unauthorized copies of PROMIS?
No: I don't know anything about it except what you just wrong! So much I'm afraid that's beyond me to find out and the government won't tell on itself.

Sharyl is what we need more of in this Godless country of ours. Our ancestors fought so hard for a beautiful America and the Democratic Socialists are trying to destroy it with their totalitarian orders. Thom, Jefferson said, " The price of freedom is eternal vigilance." We must not be silent. Is anyone aware that the whole covid thing was PLANNED?? Yes, planned and control is the name of the game. Oct., 2019(note the date), Bill Gates and Johns Hopkins Health center, simulated what they would say to disinformation by citizens, and what about censorship. We have lost our freedom of speech, how much more should we allow the gov't to take?? the injections are not vaccines at all, but experimental gene therapy. Many have died and been seriously injured, but it's been kept secret, so that some many unknowing Americans have been coerced and pushed to get this poison, which will bring more serious affects down the road. And now, they are sacrificing our childen on the altar of Big Pharma. And a few children have already died. how much more Will we allow??? How much!! ?? And there is NO research that masks do anything for protection. Fauci is a criminal and should tried before a grand jury for crimes against humanity! God help America to WAKE UP VERY SOON! All the pain and heartache caused the greedy elites. Their demise will be eternal and painful.
Lawrence Hajduk says
Sharyll, watching your Season six review episode reminds me of your wonderful, unvarnished reporting. You are an exemplary model of truth in broadcast journalism. Your reports whether positive or negative explores the facts, just the facts. What a journalistic attribute that all others should emulate. I look forward to season seven for additional truth in journalism episodes. Great job by you and your staff. Having taught Journalism for 32 years you are a bright spot in your field and I rejoice that your journalism teachers inculcated you with the knowledge that you have successfully ascquired to make you the fantastic journalist that you are.

[COVID-19 infections will be "mostly gone" by April due to herd immunity, says Johns Hopkins professor, Dr. Martin Makary, in a Wall Street Journal opinion article.
There is reason to think the country is racing toward an extremely low level of infection. As more people have been infected, most of whom have mild or no symptoms, there are fewer Americans left to be infected. At the current trajectory, I expect Covid will be mostly gone by April, allowing Americans to resume normal life.]

Hello, I am citizen USA, today want to ask . Why USDOJ over 20 years working only like political prostitutes-NOT execute the LAW, Constitution, Democracy. In 2016-2018 USDoS twice did open criminal cases H20170279, H20182152 against TERRORISTS-FBI for rapes children, kidnaps them, illegally opens criminal cases, stolen private properties, money, houses, cars, illegally sends people in madhouse and much-much more-USDoS gave ORDER for CORRUPTED bitches in USDOJ, USDHS immediately investigate and ARREST criminal syndicate, but CORRUPTED prostitutes do cover TERRORISTS, because they has been born in USA, it's American terrorists. Please tell me. Thanks
