    Who could possibly have done this????? Well, we all know the Obama administration is above board, who could possibly believe they would do such a thing…..
    Please, PLEASE let it lead to where it belongs…………The most transparent administration in the history of fiction.

    • No_BlahBlah

      badbadlibs yep,
      just No One who could possibly want to do something like this.
      Another mystery that will probably never be solved. Just like that old tv commercial, “Where’s the Beef?”

  • mikemc1970

    Thing is that the President of CBS news has a sibling that works in the west wing. Likely this was done with your boss’s full knowledge, approval, and nothing at all is likely to come from this investigation.

    1) Ensure your firewall, anti virus and hijack software is up to date… 
    2) Never, EVER click on a link to an email from someone you do NOT know!  Just delete it…
    3) Back up your computer weekly.

    Just sayin’

    So, CBS, who rabidly backed Obama for years is upset now that the monster has lawlessly spied on them too? But… wasn’t there any pillow talk after the election? Didn’t Barry spoon you guys, stroke your egos and whisper in your ear about how much he appreciated your subservience? What, he doesn’t call you anymore? No flowers?
    I still contend that Benghazi is the back-breaker of this regime. If the truth were released, many people in this regime would be in jail… if authorities did their damn jobs.

      Agree about Benghazi. Problem is it goes right to the top and pilers of power across this Government. People have died and more will be killed, if need be, to hide the truth. When a Clinton is red in the face and pointing their finger at you, they are as guilty as sin. This much we do know.

        I agree 100%

    Well, let’s see if CBS news does anything about it. I doubt it, because the mainstream media carries so much water for Obama. But what they don’t seem to get is that, whether it’s the Associated Press, James Rosen at FOX News, or Sharyl Attkisson at CBS, if you try to mess with this administration, it will try to destroy you. Hope the liberals are finally starting to get that message too.

    • poorhardworker

      Libertyship46 Does anyone remember about Larry Sinclair, Donald Young’s murder and Rev. Wright when Obama was in the IL senate???  You may want to look on YouTube for Donald Young…most of the stories will pop up.  I was living close to Chicago during this time…and Obama’s activities were pretty much common knowledge.  It is also my understanding that others from the “Gentlemen’s club” were “disappeared”.

  • E Lee Zimmerman

    Be outraged as much as you like: ain’t nothin’ gonna come of it.

  • sybilll

    I can’t wait for all of the details to come out about this.  Unless I read her wrong, I think she will risk her career to get the truth out.  Good for her.

  • Matt2Matt

    This woman needs to come over to Fox, maybe we can trade Juan Williams, Tamara Holder, Marc Lamont Hill, and Maura Liasson for her.

    • kong1967

      Matt2Matt  I’d be willing to give them away.  We need better a better bargaining chip.

      • Matt2Matt

        kong1967 Matt2Matt Throw in O’Reilley, Shep Smith, and Geraldo…

        • kong1967

          Matt2Matt Lol, deal.  They would fit right in at CBS.

    • deTocqueville1

      Matt2Matt Love it!

  • kong1967

    Well, with Obama going after Rosen and the AP, she has blinders on if she doesn’t suspect it’s the administration and/or it’s lackeys.

  • deTocqueville1

    The strain on her is evident in her face now as well as her words. Poor Lady. She is a courageous journalist and is suffering the consequences with this Department of INJustice.

    • No_BlahBlah

      deTocqueville1 Hard to work in a hostile workplace. The questions from her co-workers did not seem sympathetic. I’m surprised it was aired.

  • poorhardworker

    Here is another case of them going after investigative reports that I had not hear about in New Hampshire last year:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Stt2pavh39w&feature=youtu.be

  • medicinewoman2

    I have no idea why she’s upset NSA I’m sure has all a copy of her files.

  • NickFurry

    When they were trying to found out if Aldrich Ames was working for the KGB.  They were able to turn his computer ON.  From when it was FULLY off and NOT on sleep mode.  I saw it on a special about CIA and how they caught him!

    Why did she have to READ her answer……………………coached a little or what!
    As a side note:  what the heck happened to Gail King?  With the glasses and the wig she looked like she was incognito.

    Via the http://therightscoop.com/sharyl-attkisson-says-shes-outraged-her-computer-was-hacked-talks-about-investigation/, a follow-up to http://hotair.com/archives/2013/06/14/cbs-news-someone-was-pulling-data-from-sharyl-attkissons-computer/.
    Forgive me for a possibly stupid question but when she says that her
    computers were turning on and off, she means they were powering on and
    then powering down, not that they were merely waking up from sleep mode,
    right? When I tweeted the link to this, a bunch of people tweeted back
    that a computer might wake up automatically due to Windows Update. But
    Attkisson has had professional computer forensics people investigate,
    though; obviously she knows the difference by now between a computer
    updating itself and doing something freaky weird like powering on. The
    question is, how could a remote intruder access the computer in the
    first place if it was powered down? They would have needed to gain
    physical access to the machine and installed some sort of remote power
    switch, I assume. And why would they do something like that if, per
    Attkisson herself, they took sophisticated steps to erase their digital
    fingerprints after they messed around in her hard drive? If you dont
    want your target to know shes being hacked then maybe dont alert her by
    remotely powering on her computer. Something doesnt add up.
    Maybe
    she means that her computers did merely wake up from sleep mode but
    that there was no apparent explanation for it, including automatic
    updating?

      It’s also very hard to know if keylogging software is installed on your machine.  There is also software that you can install that lets you take control of another computer – again without showing it’s there.  The whole going on an off thing and on O’Reilly she said one of her computers started playing music.  Her computer might have been hacked, but I think she also had a lot of malware on it if that was happening.

    • No_BlahBlah

      Valin pretty simple
      she used a computer at work and at home, unlikely that she didn’t communicate between the two
      most people leave their computers on for long stretches during the day
      even if her home wasn’t broken into, it would be relatively easy to find a computer at her office that could share access to her computer and then the rest is encryption breaking
      It is unlikely for security reasons she would be allowed to have her home computer on the office network and have scheduled updates from the office system turn her computer on and off, but even if they did allow that, a quick conversation with the tech guys would explain that
      Why are you looking to disprove her allegation?

  • poorhardworker

    I may be behind the curve…but I just read this about the snooping of the NSA from a NYPD Police Commissioner!!!

  • Larchmonter

    On Fox today she indicated that she didn’t tell (trust) CBS right away. Guess they would have covered up the intrusion on her computers. Later, after her own forensic team discovered the “hackers” she reported the incidents.
    That is how bad it is to be a journalist in the Age of the Cult. CBS, the network of Edward R. Morrow, is deep in tandem with the Fraud and his Cult.
    She’s a tough and good working journalist. Her bosses will see to it that her career comes to a stall like it did with Lara Logan.

  • tinlizzieowner

    It’s amazing to see how ‘outraged’ a ‘See B. S.’ reporter can get when she finally figures out that ‘dear leader’ Obama has his fingers in ‘her’ shorts too.

    “Well Sharyl, what could they possibly have been looking for? What have you been hiding?”
