About Former CBS News Reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s Ridiculous “Hacking” Video

Oh please

[Attkisson has deleted her ludicrous video from YouTube.]

There are so many deranged stories coming out of the right wing these days that it’s hard to keep up; so I just caught up on the latest ridiculous allegations by former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson.

Attkisson released a video that she says shows her computer being “hacked” by super-secret government agents, trying to stop her courageous reporting on Benghazi. There’s her video, up above.

Attkisson’s claims are utterly ludicrous, folks. If some unknown entities actually had access to this computer, they’d simply wipe her files — not simulate the Delete key right in front of her eyes while she was working. In fact, this is such a brain-dead claim that I’m amazed anyone actually takes it seriously.

What’s probably happening in this video is a stuck Delete key. Maybe she was eating too many potato chips and crumbs got lodged in her keyboard. Or maybe there’s some kind of software conflict. Or maybe she outright faked this video; it wouldn’t be difficult. But this is not how “hacking” works.
