Wow…things certainly look like a massive cover up just beginning to have a few threads pulled. Not put anything in writing? Always a bad sign when dealing with the Government(s).

Thanks for posting this. I did a little research on Sharyl Attkisson, and knowing that she’s the “lead reporter” on the “Fast and Furious” scandal leads me to believe it is a nontroversy. She has promoted the “vaccines cause Autism” meme. Disgusting.

I already knew about Laura Ingraham and Daily Caller.

I’m not judging the information based strictly on the sources, but I certainly am considering the sources when I make my judgments.

I don’t think the “vaccines cause Autism” meme has anything to do with taking heat for asking questions about a legitimacy story. If the WH has a problem with this they should release all emails & memos so this goes away. I don’t see that happening.

It does have to do with Attkisson’s credibility. She is now a joke to me, especially when she’s being interviewed by Laura Ingraham. Does she have video of the “heat” she took over this story? If not, I don’t believe her.

I’m sure she’s very concerned about that.

And I’m sure you’re not. Sad, really.

re: #6 wrenchwench

Is the vaccine thing an unusual tack for her?
Or a singular repeated error?

Career-from Wiki

From 1990 to 1993, Attkisson was an anchor for CNN. She left CNN in 1993,[1] moving to CBS, where she anchored the television news broadcast CBS News Up to the Minute and became an investigative correspondent based in Washington D.C. [2] She simultaneously hosted the PBS Health news magazine HealthWeek from 1997 to 2003. [3] She was also a key anchor for CBS space exploration coverage in 1993.[4] She served as Capitol Hill correspondent for CBS in 2006. [5]

In July 2011, Attkisson was nominated for an Emmy Award for her “Follow the Money” investigations into Congressional travel to the Copenhagen climate summit, and aid to Haiti earthquake victims. [6] Attkisson received an Investigative Emmy Award in 2009 for “Outstanding Investigative Reporting of a Business News Story” for her exclusive investigations into TARP and the bank bailout. In 2002, Attkisson also won an Emmy Award for her Investigative Journalism about the American Red Cross.[2] In the same year, she co-authored a college textbook titled Writing Right for Broadcast and Internet News .[7] In 2003, Attkisson was nominated for an Outstanding Investigative Journalism Emmy Award for “Drugs, Money, and Safety”; reports on prescription drugs and vaccines. [8] In 2010, she received an Emmy Award nomination for her investigations into members of Congress, and she also received a 2010 Emmy Award nomination for her investigation into waste of tax dollars. [9] In 2006, she was one of a small number of female anchors covering the 2006 midterms.[10]

In 2011, Attkisson reported on a literature review by Helen Ratajczak, a former scientist at a pharmaceutical firm, which theoretically linked the development of autism with the administration of vaccines containing human DNA via the mechanism of “homologous recombinaltion tiniker”[sic].[11

re: #8 Rightwingconspirator

That second one you highlighted I almost included myself. Sly way to go after AGW, questioning congresscritters for spending money to go to the Copenhagen climate summit.

So the answer is, “not singular”.

And if it were singular, it’s egregious enough by itself.

That’s from Attkisson. Don’t bother showing it to me.

I’m with you on not trusting non-verifiable things. But at that link there are some verifiable documents. I’ll take a look.

Thanks. I’m out of time and patience.

Well, the memos were sent with the info describing F&F in general terms. This fact doesn’t paint Holder in good light in any case - it is possible that he didn’t lie (and simply didn’t remember), but only at the expense of a professional failing - if he didn’t remember these passages (which is possible, since they are part of larger documents), it’s a bad sign, means he didn’t pay due attention to these memos.

(That said, I suspect he gets dozens if not hundreds of those each day…)

True, but I think at this point an independent counsel is needed. Congressman Smith is right on that point: Eric Holder cannot be expected to investigate himself, and the facts now warrant an investigation.

Holder knew in advance what was going to be discussed when he was going in front of congress. This was not a comment made in the hallway.
He must have been prepared by his staff. It is impossible that no one on his staff read any of the memos.

Holder needs to take this more seriously. It is going to get serious with or without him.
