RPT: Sharyl Attkisson Resigns From CBS Due to Network's Liberal Bias
CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson resigned from the network on Monday afternoon.
According to Dylan Byers at Politco, Attkisson is leaving CBS because she “had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias, an outsize influence by the network’s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said.”
Attkisson previously won the Edward R. Murrow award for her work on the Fast and Furious Operation.
This morning on Fox and Friends, Laura Ingraham said she was surprised Attkisson was “able to hold out as long as she did at the network.”
Having worked with Attkisson at CBS in the past, Ingraham called her a truth-seeker with no political agenda.
Ingraham surmised the reporter hit “wall after wall” when trying to pursue stories. “CBS wanted to keep [Attkisson] maybe, but keep her under wraps a little bit. […] The fact that she’s liberated now I think is a good thing. If I were running a television network, I would snap her up.”
Ingraham also weighed in on President Obama's handling of Russia and Ukraine. Plus, what does she think about the "bossy" word ban? Check it out in the clip above.
