CBS News reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, one of the very few real reporters left in the mainstream media, appeared on Monday’s O’Reilly Factor, telling Bill O’Reilly that she thinks she knew who hacked her computer (scroll down for video). In the interview, Attkisson begins by explaining that both her personal computer, as well as her CBS work computer would mysteriously turn on in the middle of the night, even though she’d shut them down. Attkisson then told O’Reilly that whoever hacked her computers curiously didn’t try to go after her personal finances or steal her identity. She then said at the time of the hacks, she’d been reporting on both the Fast and Furious and Benghazi scandals, both damaging to the Obama regime and to his Attorney General, Eric Holder:
ATTKISSON: Well you know the first thing I thought some time ago were my personal accounts, my finances, my passwords and so on. But nobody has intruded upon my finances although they had access to that material. So nobody stole my identity or got into my bank accounts which they could have. So I assume the reason they were in the CBS computer was something related to what I was working on.
O’REILLY: Which was what? What big stories were you working on?
ATTKISSON: Well, at the time I was doing Fast and Furious of course, some green energy debacle sort of stimulus spending stories, and then later on the Benghazi story.
Attkisson then tells O’Reilly that this isn’t just your garden-variety hacker, and while not revealing who the hacker is, she indicates with some certainty that she knows who did it.
ATTKISSON: Well, they’re just telling us what we can say more than anything right now which is, you know, which you basically heard that there has been an intrusion of the computer. This is not phishing. This is not malware. This is not an ordinary as someone asked me old boyfriend trying to look through my files.
O’REILLY: Okay, this is big.
O’REILLY: And, but in order to go after somebody, you’ve got to have a suspicion, and I assume you have a suspicion. You don’t have to tell me. I don’t want to get your lawyers mad but I assume you have a suspicion.
ATTKISSON: Well, I think I know, but I, I’m just not prepared to go into that. So, we’re continuing our investigation. There are multi-faceted, you know, looks at what to do next.
Who knows whether Attkisson will be able to prove who the hacker was, or if they will ever be revealed. I think with the recent revelations about the Obama regime spying on FOX News’ James Rosen, along with the regime’s admitted spying on reporters at AP, it’s pretty clear who the likely culprit is, especially since Attkisson was just about the only mainstream media reporter who was reporting on Obama’s and Holder’s scandals.
