Accuracy in Media

sharyl attkisson website

Former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who resigned from the network earlier this month, has wasted no time in her pursuit of the truth with the launch of her new website.

The website, featuring the tagline “Untouchable Subjects.  Fearless Reporting,” is designed to educate visitors about her past reporting on stories relating to the Fast and Furious scandal, Benghazi, Healthcare.gov and other topics she has covered during her career at CBS. It isn’t clear, however, whether or not she will be adding new material to the site.

Attkisson, who received Accuracy in Media’s Reed Irvine Award for Investigative Journalism in 2012 to honor her “outstanding contributions to journalism,” often swam against the mainstream media tide. Now that she has been freed from her network shackles, she is sure to be an even larger thorn in the side of the Obama administration.

    Can’t wait to read what this great reporter has to say. Should be worth while because now she doesn’t owe anybody anything. Tell us the truth and let us decide about how corrupt this administration is.

  • Corky Boyd

    If you wonder why she is running a blog rather than working for a less liberal cable news organization, you are part of a large crowd.
    I would guess there was a non-compete clause in the terms of her early departure from her CBS contract. Just a guess, but the delay will probably take her past the mid-term elections. But I don’t think she would have been in such a rush to leave unless she had something solid set up for the future. That most likely is a cable news operation is Fox News

  • Angermanagement

    I hope she investigates the illegal scourge. None of these politicians talk about the damage, the deaths, the benefits, the crimes, the fraud, the contempt and the all around destruction to America.

  • ROGERGB

    We want the truth, not the the hiding of facts like most of the MSM is feeding Americans about what is going with Obama and his Administration. We know it’s not good and we are tired of the lies and deception.

    About two years ago Sheriff Arpaio (Sheriff Joe) held two press
    conferences PROVING that AKA Obama has a forged selective service
    registration and posted a forged birth certificate at whitehouse.gov
    before the 2012 election. Today the Alabama supreme court ruled on an
    Obama eligibility issue – and while the court refused the case, the
    dissenting judges went as far as to say “McInnish attached certain
    documentation to his mandamus petition,
    which, if presented to the appropriate forum as part of a proper
    evidentiary presentation, would raise serious questions about the
    authenticity of both the ‘short form’ and the ‘long form’ birth
    certificates of President Obama that have been made public.”

    If
    you want to watch the press conferences, or read the affidavit Arpaio’s
    lead investigator submitted to the AL court, this document has links:

    We have an imposter in the whitehouse – EVERYTHING ELSE IS SMALL NEWS. Will she report the truth about AKA Obama and his document forgeries?

  • siquijorisland

    Waiting to see what she come up with.

  • dusel1

    I cannot trust a major news media type who does not question usurper Obama’s legitimacy as president of the USA.

  • putorium

    Just hope that she can provide the evidence for all that she tries to say was wrong and how they lied and who exactly lied? Hope she also includes more on why we ever went to Iraq and the WMD lies? Let it all hang out for all of them on both sides of the aisle. Just tell why on many TV stations do the journalist have to follow the line and not be able to tell us what is the truth? I do not get the feeling this is what Aljazera is doing with real news? They are giving us all kinds of news, very interesting almost reminds me of the old CNN days.

    Don’t they have the colb with the raised seal on it?

  • Russ

    If you know any history of Kenya, the hospital in Hawaii, slogan’s in the year of 1961 then you are in the know.
    Everything on Obama BC is a fake.

  • terry1956

    Russ, do you have time to spell out the slogan of the hospital in Hi. in 1961 and some of the related history of Kenya?

  • Russ

    4 Simple Questions

    1. Back in 1961 people of color were called ‘Negroes.’ So how can the Obama ‘birth certificate’ state he is “African-American” when the term wasn’t even used until the 1980s?

    2. The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama’s birth as August 4, 1961 & lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father. No big deal, right? At the time of Obama’s birth, it also shows that his father is 25 years old, and that Obama’s father was born in ” Kenya , East Africa “. This wouldn’t seem like anything of concern, except that Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two years after Obama’s birth, and 27 years after his father’s birth. How could Obama’s father have been born in a country that did not yet exist? Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known as the “British East Africa Protectorate”. (check it below)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya_
    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya) (You may need to cut & Paste)

    3. On the Birth Certificate released by the White House, the listed place of birth is “Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital”. This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961 were called “Kaui Keolani Children’s Hospital” and “Kapi’olani Maternity Home”, respectively. The name did not change to Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until 1978, when these two hospitals merged. How can this particular name of the hospital be on a birth certificate dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978?
    (CHECK IT BELOW)
    http://http/http/www.kapiolani.org/women-and-children/about-us/default.aspx

    ( http://www.kapiolani.org/women-and-children/about-us/default.aspx )

    Why hasn’t this been discussed in the major media?

    4. Perhaps a clue comes from Obama’s book on his father. He states how proud he is of his father fighting in WW II. I’m not a math genius, so bear with me. Barack Obama’s “birth certificate” says his father was 25 years old in 1961 when Obama was born. That should have put his father’s date of birth approximately 1936 – if my math holds. Now we need a (non-revised) history book to verify that WW II was basically between 1939 and 1945. Just how many 3 year olds fight in Wars? Even in the latest stages of WW II his father wouldn’t have been more than 9 years old.

  • debtom

    I never knew he said his father fought in WWII. Are you sure??

  • smrstrauss

    Re: “In 1961 people of color were called “Negroes.” So how can the Obama “birth certificate” state he is “African-American” when the term wasn’t even used at that time?”

    ANSWER: First it does not say “African-American.” It says “African.” Only African.

    The explanation is simple. In Hawaii you were allowed to use any word you wanted to describe your race. There was no checklist, and no one stood over you saying what you had to enter. There are entries in Hawaii of people listing their race as “American.” Others said that their race was “Italian.” Neither American nor Italian are races. So you were allowed to use any word you wanted.

    And what was the word that African exchange students commonly used to describe their race in the 1960s? Answer: African.

    Re: 2. “… Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two whole years after Obama’s birth, and 27 years after his father’s birth. How could Obama’s father have been born in a country that did not yet exist? Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known then as the “British East Africa Protectorate”.”

    Answer. It wasn’t a country. It was a COLONY. AND You are out of date with that name. Kenya stopped being called the British East African Protectorate in 1920. In that year it was renamed. What was the name? THE KENYA COLONY.

    In short, it was called Kenya (Kenya short for “The Kenya Colony”), and it was in East Africa, so the entry Kenya, East Africa is correct.

    Re: “3. On the birth certificate released by the White House, the listed place of birth is “Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital”. This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961
    were called “KauiKeolani Children’s Hospital” and “Kapi’olani Maternity Home”, respectively. ”

    Answer: You are referring to two other hospitals. But, Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital DID exist in 1961. How do we know? Well, on WND’s site there are birth certificates for the Nordkye Twins, born one day after Obama in the same hospital, and
    what is the name of the hospital on their birth certificates? Answer: Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital.

    Finally, Obama’s book clearly says that his GRANDfather fought in WWII, not his father. His GRANDfather. and in fact Obama’s GRANDfather
    really did fight in WWII. Obama’s book did not say, nor did Obama (though there is a forged video that claims that he said it) that his father, who was indeed too young to fight in WWII, fought in WWII. He
    said, and his book said, that his GRANDfather fought in WWII. (Why not check these things before posting???)

  • smrstrauss

    Actually, he didn’t say that his father fought in WWII. He said that his GRANDfather fought in WWII. And his grandfather did fight in WWII (under General Patton). The question simply makes up the claim that Obama said that his father—who did not fight in WWII—did fight in WWII. Obama’s book says that his GRANDfather fought in WWII—and he did.

  • debtom

    did you watch the video???? he says his ‘father’ in the video.

  • smrstrauss

    Videos can be forged, and in fact birthers have forged a lot of them. He said his GRANDfather, and a birther cut out the “GRAND.”

  • debtom

    what proof do you have of that?

  • smrstrauss
  • debtom

    I’ve read through your posts and see you are an apologist for the prez…seen you around before.

    So, as you have all the answers, please explain the ss#’s he uses who belong to dead people.

  • smrstrauss

    You are asking for proof that the GRAND was cut out of Grandfather? What proof do you have that the video DOESN’T have the “grand” cut out of Grandfather? Obama’s book said GRANDfather—so why should he say “father?” Does he get anything out of saying “father”—when grandfather was correct? Answer: NO. Does a birther get anything out of cutting out the GRAND from grandfather and making a few gullible people think that Obama said something stupid about his father—who wasn’t old enough to have fought in that war? Answer: YES.

    Have birthers done things like this before? Answer YEA, many many times. There three forged “Kenyan birth certificates” and a forged “Columbia University Student ID”—which claims to show that Obama was a “foreign student” (one problem is that Columbia student IDs do not and never have identified foreign students any differently than US students—-and you can call up the Columbia University public relations department yourself and check).
    More examples of classic birther lies:

    (1) Birthers said that Obama’s draft card was forged, and indeed it was forged, but Obama did not post his draft card, nor did any representative of Obama—so who do you think forged it? (Okay, I’ll make it easy—the guy who posted it.)

    (2) Birthers have said that Obama became a citizen of Indonesia—but a telephone call to the Indonesian Embassy shows that he was never an Indonesian citizen. Why do you suppose that the birthers did not call the Indonesian embassy to check?

    (3) Birthers said that Obama’s Kenyan grandmother said that he was born in Kenya—but the transcript of the call shows that she said that he was BORN IN HAWAII—why do you suppose they did not quote her accurately and in fact cut off the tape recording of the call on their sites just before she said “born in Hawaii, where his father was studying at the time.” Why do you suppose they did that?

    (4) Birther sites did not tell you about SS Administration clerks making lots of mistakes and that a single digit entered wrong in the zip code would generated a SS number from a place other than where it was applied from. Why do you suppose they did not tell you that?

    (5) Birther sites did not tell their readers that the Kenyan government said that Obama was NOT born there. Why do you suppose they did not tell their readers that?

    (6) Birther sites did not even tell their readers that there is no evidence that Obama’s mother had a passport in 1961—or how very few 18-year-olds did in those days, or how EXTREMELY few women traveled abroad late in pregnancy in those days because of the high risk of stillbirth. Why do you suppose they did not tell you that?

    (7) Birther sites posted videos of Obama that claimed to show that he said “I was born in Kenya”—but you cannot see his mouth move and the originals of those videos have been found, and they do not say “I was born in Kenya..”” Why do you suppose that they forged and posted those videos? (Ditto, by the way, for three forged “Kenyan birth certificates.” And what do you suppose was the motive for forging them??)

    (8) Birther sites said that Obama spent “millions” on hiding his birth certificate. But Obama showed his birth certificate and did not spend a cent on hiding anything. And in fact, as birther sites did not tell their readers, there wasn’t even one lawsuit for Obama’s birth certificate or for records, not one. There were lawsuits to keep Obama off of ballots, but NO lawsuits for his birth certificate or records of any kind. Why do you suppose that birther sites implied that there were lawsuits for Obama’s BC—when there weren’t ANY???

    (9) Birther sites said that Obama’s records are “sealed,” but they are not sealed. They are covered under the ordinary state and federal privacy laws, and Mitt Romney and John McCain and previous presidents did not release similar records either.

    And (10) the constant repetition ‘the birth certificates are forged,” and “anyone can see that the birth certificates are forged”—are all birther lies too. And they have the same motives as the lies shown above.

    Birthers have not shown all the real experts who have said that there is nothing wrong with Obama’s birth certificate, nor have they told the readers on birther sites that the officials in Hawaii of BOTH parties have repeatedly confirmed that they sent the birth certificates to Obama and confirmed ALL the facts on the copy that the White House put online are EXACTLY the same as on what they sent to him. And they have not explained the research on the Xerox Workstation either:

    http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2013/11/blogger-shows-obama-birth-certificate-artifacts-caused-by-xerox-machine-no-joy-in-birtherville/

    In short, it is just another birther LIE.

  • debtom

    the prez must be a ‘natural born citizen’ not a ‘native born citizen.

  • debtom

    the PROOF is in the video!

  • debtom

    you are wrong on many points here but you will never admit that so you are a waste of time.

  • smrstrauss

    Obama’s SS numbers have never been shown to belong to anyone other than him. The Ludwig claim has been shown to be false because Ludwig’s number was different from Obama’s number—NOT the same. And the SS Administration says that there is NO SS file for “Harrison J. Bounel”—so there isn’t a SS number for him, and hence Obama could not have used it. And the CT number was generated by a data entry error.

    More examples of classic birther lies:

    (1) Birthers said that Obama’s draft card was forged, and indeed it was forged, but Obama did not post his draft card, nor did any representative of Obama—so who do you think forged it? (Okay, I’ll make it easy—the guy who posted it.)

    Every child born on US soil, meaning every native born citizen, (except for the children of foreign diplomats and enemy invaders) is a Natural Born Citizen.

    “Under the longstanding English common-law principle of jus soli, persons born within the territory of the sovereign (other than children of enemy aliens or foreign diplomats) are citizens from birth. Thus, those persons born within the United States are “natural born citizens” and eligible to be President. Much less certain, however, is whether
    children born abroad of United States citizens are “natural born citizens” eligible to serve as President …”—- Edwin Meese, et al, THE HERITAGE GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION (2005) [Edwin Meese was Ronald Reagan’s attorney general, and the Heritage Foundation is a well-known Conservative organization.]

    “Some birthers imagine that there is a difference between being a “citizen by birth” or a “native citizen”
    on the one hand and a “natural born” citizen on the other. “Eccentric” is too kind a word for this notion, which is either daft or dishonest. All three terms are identical in meaning.”—The Wall Street Journal (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204619004574322281597739634.html?KEYWORDS=obama+%22natural+born+citizen%22+minor+happersett)

    Notice that debtom did not respond to any of the FACTS shown above? (I wonder why not?????)

  • debtom

    because they are not facts

  • debtom

    and the CT # was an error? that’s laughable just like all the other excuses.

  • debtom

    WRONG!

  • smrstrauss

    Notice that debtom simply says “they are not the facts” and does not show that they are not the facts. But they ARE the facts, and l can show links that prove them. For example:

    Here is a link to many (though far from all) of the documents that confirm that Hawaii sent the short form and long form birth certificates to Obama and that all the facts on the copies published are exactly the same as on what they sent to him:

    Here are the birth notices of Obama’s birth in the Hawaii newspapers in 1961.

    http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/obamabirth.php

    (And as you can see the section of the paper is called “Health Bureau Statistics”. Well, as the name indicates, and as both the papers and the DOH confirm, ONLY the DOH could send notices to that section of the paper, and it only did so for births IN Hawaii.)

  • smrstrauss

    The CT SS number was generated by a data entry error, of which there were MILLIONS by SS clerks. Did you think that they never made mistakes? Did you think that entering a zip code wrong would not generate a SS number from a place other than where it should have been? Obama’s address in Hawaii was in zip code 96814, and the zip code for Danbury, CT. is 06814.
