Sharyl Attkisson quits CBS

The reporter who played a key role in bringing Operation Fast and Furious and the Benghazi scandal much of what MSM coverage they received has resigned from CBS.

Via Twitter:
Politico reports it happened after months of negotiation between Atkisson and the network, but prior the  scheduled end of her contract.

I left a comment below the Politico article.
I'm old enough to remember when the media prided itself as being a public watchdog. Now, it's seems no more than a lapdog, groveling for the exclusive with the POTUS or FLOTUS. Sharyl Attkission is an old school reporter who fearlessly followed wherever the story led. It's a shame America's MSM was too afraid to follow her lead on stories like Fast and Furious or Benghazi. 
While leaving my comment, I noticed this from Matt Bracken:
Sharyl had no place at CBS, a media arm of Obama's Gangster Govt Inc. She dared to report on Operation Fast and Furious and Benghazi, so she was a pariah there. American Pravda = ABCNNBCBS, the NYT, WP and LAT etc. Their motto is, "It's not a scandal if we don't report it." They spent 100 times more minutes covering "Bridgegate" than Fast and Furious (300+ Mexicans murdered on purpose) and Benghazi combined. Sharyl didn't play "team ball" and was reduced to tweeting out her scoops, CBS would not give her ten seconds of airtime.
I hope we see Sharyl resurface soon on a platform where she's appreciated. And encouraged to follow the story - wherever it leads.
