I’ll take the quote from Hot Air to avoid quoting Politico:
Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network’s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her packages on television.
Allahpundit gets the line of the day: “First Liz Wahl quits RT over Crimea, now this. It’s been a bad week for state TV.”
Attkisson’s Twitter feed merely says: “I have resigned from CBS.”
Unconfirmed rumors I just made up say that Attkisson will now be required to certify on her tax forms, under penalty of perjury, that she will not be investigating the Obama administration in any future jobs, or a special 10% surcharge will apply. (The surcharge has not been passed by Congress but will be imposed pursuant to President Obama’s enforcement powers. Do you wish to raise a public objection, citizen?)
Good luck to Attkisson, an excellent reporter, in whatever future endeavors Barack Obama allows her to pursue.
