Former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson said on Monday that there is a “well-orchestrated” strategy to marginalize the Benghazi story by the Obama White House in order to make it go away.
Reacting to a heated exchange between conservative radio talk show host Laura Ingraham and Obama spinmeister David Plouffe on ABC News’ This Week, in which Plouffe attempted to spin the narrative that the Benghazi story was being promoted by a “delusional minority” of the GOP, Attkisson told Fox and Friends on Monday that:
“The key words they use, such as ‘conspiracy’ and ‘delusional,’ are in my opinion clearly designed to try to controversialize a story — a legitimate news story and a legitimate area of journalistic inquiry.”
“I see that as a well-orchestrated strategy to controversialize a story they really don’t want to hear about.” said Attkisson.
Attkisson goes on to say that if it were up to the left, she’d be left covering nothing but weather.
