Back before the mainstream media was bought and former President Donald Trump revealed them to be nothing more than fake news, there were reporters like Sharyl Attkisson, who was more than an award-winning reporter for CBS News. She also didn’t take sides or reveal her material with an alternative agenda. Instead, she let the facts do the talking, like her intensive work on the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi that left three Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, dead. Criticizing the leadership of the Obama administration, it appears the White House at the time didn’t take too kindly to her reporting as they pushed the FBI to investigate her.

Speaking about her interaction with the FBI, Attkisson, as can be seen in the video below, admitted, “One little-reported facet of my case is one of the federal agents involved in one of the operations against me said that they intended to plant child porn in my husband’s computer. This is the FBI. There’s been a case that’s currently in litigation unrelated in which an FBI agent has testified that they did that, they have done that. It was not accomplished in my case. I guess the curtain was drawn on that facet of the operation prior to them doing it, but imagine how you ever get out of that. How they knew we had a young daughter at home and had allegedly conspired to do that.”

While having the FBI trying to frame a person can be terrifying, this wasn’t the first time Attkisson was the subject of attacks. During the COVID-19 pandemic, not only was she accused of being anti-vaxx, but some claimed her investigation into the Benghazi killings found nothing. 

 The reporter addressed the claims, writing, “it is false that the Benghazi investigation “found nothing.” In fact, my Benghazi reporting received an investigative Emmy award nomination from an independent group of national judges. The documentary record shows, among other findings, that there was a concerted effort to cover up the terrorist nature of the Benghazi attacks. This is undisputed, including by Obama administration officials I interviewed for my stories.”

Attkisson also discussed the accusations that her reporting was one-sided. “My work has been recognized with five Emmy awards, an Edward R. Murrow investigative award. My most recent Emmy was for a series that included an undercover investigation into Republican fundraising. I have also received Emmy awards and nominations for stories on Red Cross fraud, Fast and Furious, wasteful spending by Congress, fraudulent aid spending in Haiti, the Bush administration’s bait and switch on TARP, and numerous other stories.”
