CBS Reporter’s Computer Under Investigation

Sharyl Attkisson, the Emmy-award winning investigative reporter for CBS, claims that both her personal and work computers have been compromised by a federal government entity.

Atkisson stated that ‘irregular activity’ first appeared on her computers in February of 2011, during which time she was heavily involved in reporting on the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal and on the administration’s green energy spending. Both subjects were news stories that “the administration was very sensitive about,” according to Atkisson. She has also been consistently covering events surrounding the Benghazi terror attack, recently releasing excerpts from one of the whistleblower’s private testimony days before the House committee hearing on the matter.

“I can confirm that an intrusion of my computers has been under some investigation on my end for some months but I’m not prepared to make an allegation against a specific entity today as I’ve been patient and methodical about this matter,” Atkisson said on Tuesday.  “I need to check with my attorney and CBS to get their recommendations on info we make public.”

The CBS reporter went on to say that there may be a connection between the investigation into her activities and the recently-publisized investigation into Fox News reporter James Rosen.
