I have resigned from CBS.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.
