In this eye-opening talk, veteran investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson shows how astroturf, or fake grassroots movements funded by political, corporate, or other special interests very effectively manipulate and distort media messages.

Sharyl Attkisson is an investigative journalist based in Washington D.C. She is currently writing a book entitled Stonewalled (Harper Collins), which addresses the unseen influences of corporations and special interests on the information and images the public receives every day in the news and elsewhere. For twenty years (through March 2014), Attkisson was a correspondent for CBS News. In 2013, she received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism for her reporting on “The Business of Congress,” which included an undercover investigation into fundraising by Republican freshmen. She also received Emmy nominations in 2013 for Benghazi: Dying for Security and Green Energy Going Red. Additionally, Attkisson received a 2013 Daytime Emmy Award as part of the CBS Sunday Morning team’s entry for Outstanding Morning Program for her report: “Washington Lobbying: K-Street Behind Closed Doors.” In September 2012, Attkisson also received an Emmy for Oustanding Investigative Journalism for the “Gunwalker: Fast and Furious” story. She received the RTNDA Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Investigative Reporting for the same story. Attkisson received an Investigative Emmy Award in 2009 for her exclusive investigations into TARP and the bank bailout. She received an Investigative Emmy Award in 2002 for her series of exclusive reports about mismanagement at the Red Cross.

  1. So where was this lying whore ten years ago? She was helping to shovel the BS, and today she’s not revealing anything that we haven’t figured out for ourselves long ago.

    “Sharyl Attkisson is an investigative journalist based in Washington D.C. She is currently writing a book entitled Stonewalled..”

    Oh, I see. She trying to sell her book, because no one would ever pay her for sex, so after shoveling BS for her entire life, now she’s going to “reveal” what we already know.

    Boycott this lying piece of trash, because her book is likely filled with more of the same crap that pours out of her mouth. She probably wrote the book to blame media lying on “a few bad apples”, so as to preserve the influence of the Zionist propaganda machine that owns her.

    She made a career out of being a piece of human garbage, and now we’re supposed to believe that she’s going to tell the truth.
