As we’ve discussed on Tammy Radio, the targeting of Fox’s James Rosen is likely only the tip of the iceberg.

Sharyl Attkisson, the Emmy-award winning CBS News investigative reporter, says that her personal and work computers have been compromised and are under investigation.

“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,” Attkisson told POLITICO on Tuesday. “I need to check with my attorney and CBS to get their recommendations on info we make public.”

In an earlier interview with WPHT Philadelphia, Attkisson said that though she did not know the full details of the intrustion, “there could be some relationship between these things and what’s happened to James [Rosen],” the Fox News reporter who became the subject of a Justice Dept. investigation after reporting on CIA intelligence about North Korea in 2009.

On Sunday, The Washington Post reported that the Justice Dept. had searched Rosen’s personal e-mails and tracked his visits to the State Dept. The court affadavit described Rosen as “at the very least, either as an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator” of his government source, presumably because he had solicited classified information from that source — an argument that has been heavily criticized by other journalists.

Attkisson told WPHT that irregular activity on her computer was first identified in Feb. 2011, when she was reporting on the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal and on the Obama administration’s green energy spending, which she said “the administration was very sensitive about.” Attkisson has also been a persistent investigator of the events surrounding last year’s attack in Benghazi, and its aftermath.

    Good grief! When is any of this cr*p going to touch the DB in the White House?! We’d have to be fools to think this much stuff was going on around him & he knew nothing about any of it! Tyranny is what we have going on here!

    With so many viruses and hackers loose in the world, I’d like to get some greater clarity as to the cause in this instance. Aside from my sense of fair play — yeah, I know, the other guys don’t play fair, but do I really want to be like them? — it hurts our cause to assert a thing and then turn out to be wrong. (Even though it doesn’t seem to hurt their cause when they assert a thing and then they turn out to be wrong. Yeah, the Tea Party blew up the Boston Marathon in solidarity with Hitler’s birthday and the Columbine shooters. I may as well admit it. Heil Schicklgruber!)

      Yes Dave, isn’t it just amazing now as you say, “This just in IRS Official to Plead the Fifth.” Absolutely mind numbing! Infuriating, but just like Tammy wrote so eloquently, everything is coming out in the open now. This time more than ever, it is important to call these peeps to task…

      P.S. Tammy, WE LOVE the music selection portion of the blog. Now body knows art and musica and how to get down like the TAMS:)

      If Lerner indeed takes the Fifth…that indicates she’s headed for jail, and that’s BIG.

        The local Cincinnati Fox 19 WXIX has a reporter doing an excellent series digging into this IRS scandal! Ben Swann is doing the “Reality Check” series and last night he named 6 IRS agents and explained chain in command, they all had different managers to report to and the built-in levels that trigger red flags if request were not done in 270 days. As these agent reported up, there was one name they had in common, Cindy Thomas. The videos are up on their site if you are interested in watching.

        FYI – As “they” try to make the Cincinnati local office sound like small operation, be aware that this office is a major hub; even headquarters for some departments with over 4,000 employees.

    OMG, I am falling in ever-deeper love (the philos kind, that is) with James Taranto. His commentaries always wrestle with the complex issues and make sense of them, but a moment ago one of his follow-up bits knocked me to the floor. In “The Dog Whistler”, past the meat of the article, we find:

    Probably Pining for the Fjords
    “A Tough Week, but Obama’s Agenda Isn’t Dead”–headline,, May 17

    Yes, a juxtaposition between a Daily Beast headline and the Monty Python Dead Parrot sketch. This is brilliant beyond words.

    Termites, all over the White House, termites. But the going bet is still that there will be no consequences. No one will go to jail, and Obama will remain in office.

    The Department of Injustice = The Schutzstaffel (SS)
    The IRS = The Gestapo

    5/24 Politico story on SA.

    “… CBS News President David Rhodes is said to value her diligence, but there are others, most notably Pat Shevlin, the executive producer of CBS Evening News, who are wary of her motives and have even dismissed her, in private, as a partisan carrying water for Republicans. Alternatively, some sources suggested that Shevlin’s own political bias, which they described as liberal, was to blame.

    Either way, the tension has caused Attkisson to feel that she’s been marginalized at the network, sources said. “She doesn’t get much love here,” one CBS News source told POLITICO. “Part of that is her fault — she doesn’t have a filter on when to push certain stories, when to say that’s not big enough for the Evening News.

    “She is a dogged reporter, a good reporter, but some people here get the feeling she goes too far — that she’s agenda-driven,” another source said. “She’s not afraid, and that’s a great thing. But sometimes, people here believe she has to be reined in.”…”
