Sharyl Attkisson: Obama Officials' Profanity Is Nothing New

Monday, 08 Dec 2014 04:29 PM

Emmy Award-winning journalist and former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson says she's been the victim of profanity-laced tirades by Obama administration officials.

Attkisson was asked about the revelation by recently-retired ABC News White House correspondent Ann Compton that President Barack went on a profane, off-the-record outburst over scandals he believed the press was overblowing.

"Maybe this is just me or a personal opinion that a profanity-laced conversation with professionals in the press by the president of the U.S. is probably inappropriate," Attkisson said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Atkisson discussed this with Malzberg as well as the Rolling Stone article about the University of Virginia.

"That's not surprising to me. There have been profanity-laced discussions on their part with members of the Obama administration. They've talked to me about similar things, thinking that a cover story … was not warranted or fair.

"They haven't just done this with me, but with reporters at The Associated Press and other colleagues. This is a tactic and a strategy."

Attkisson — author of "Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama's Washington," published by Harper — said she isn't sure the outbursts are genuine.

"I don't know if it's heartfelt or sometimes it's just to create the kind of pushback that leads to a self-censorship, because you're so beaten down … by what they say, by the social media campaigns and the blog campaigns that they launch."
