Released Fast And Furious Emails Confirm Sharyl Attkisson Was A Target

AZBD Note: We no longer have a free press in this country. The sad thing is most of the press is completely ok with that.


Judicial Watch has released documents they obtained through a FOIA request on Operation Fast and Furious. Among the more than 42,000 pages is an email exchange between the Justice Department and the White House showing that the administration sought to rein in CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who was labeled as being “out of control.”

From the Judicial Watch press release.

“We are posting these documents for the public to review and hope that crowd-sourcing our investigation will lead to more accountability for the Fast and Furious outrage. The documents are explosive. For instance, our initial review of the documents shows the DOJ and White House targeted then-CBS journalist Sharyl Attkisson:

On October 4, 2011, Holder’s top press aide Tracy Schmaler tells White House Deputy Press Sectary Eric Schultz, ‘I’m also calling Sharryl’s [sic] editor and reaching out to Scheiffer. She’s out of control’
“Schultz responded, ‘Good. Her piece was really bad for the AG.’
