Sharyl Attkisson Interview With the Hollywood Reporter

The former CBS reporter in a remarkable interview tied in with the release of her book on the scandals she covered during the Obama administration, including Fast & Furious and Benghazi.

I wasn't expecting much from an outlet such as The Hollywood Reporter, but the journalist conducting the interview, Paul Bond, does an incredibly good job at trying to get Attkisson to dish on the Obama administration and CBS. Attkisson plays it very close to the vest, being careful not to say anything legally actionable (libel, slander) save in a couple of cases where she names names. One new reveal is that she's the subject of a whispering campaign at CBS to characterize her as paranoid or a liar, and she identifies CBS bureau chief Chris Isham as responsible for this. A good, good interview, well worth reading in full.
