One Reason CBS' Investigative Reporter May Have a Target on Her Back.

by Jerry Bader

Actually, when you consider the family connections here between President Obama and CBS News, it's ironic that it is the Tiffany Network that has been the most aggressive of the Alphabet Networks on this story up to now. I say up to now because ABC's report yesterday was the most damning so far from a network not named Fox. If CBS really is considering axing Attkisson over her Benghazi coverage, that plan has become problematic.

Even before the ABC story broke it was becoming clear to me that the MSM was starting to feel there was a "there" there where Benghazi is concerned. Clearly the Obama administration didn't like the idea that a network they consider a friendly was being  aggressive on this story and if Attkisson was still the only "old media" reporter on this CBS might be tempted to cut her loose.

But to do so now, as the rest of the Jurassic News gang is about to jump on the story would be tricky business. I'm old enough to remember Watergate. The dynamic here is different, but the drip, drip, drip sound very much the same as it was 40 years ago.
