Election 2016: Hillary Clinton: I need to ‘work on’ press relations
**Posted by Phineas
Well, boo-hoo. It seems CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who’s one of the few MSM reporters paying close attention to Operation Fast and Furious, has been getting yelled at by White House and Department of Justice aides over her coverage of the scandal. As she told radio host Laura Ingraham:
6:05 – Laura: So they were literally screaming at you?
Attkisson: Yes. Well the DOJ woman was just yelling at me. The guy from the White House on Friday night literally screamed at me and cussed at me. [Laura: Who was the person? Who was the person at Justice screaming?] Eric Schultz. Oh, the person screaming was [DOJ spokeswoman] Tracy Schmaler, she was yelling not screaming. And the person who screamed at me was Eric Schultz at the White House.”
8:28 – …Is it sort of a drip, drip. And I’m certainly not the one to make the case for DOJ and White House about what I’m doing wrong. They will tell you that I’m the only reporter–as they told me–that is not reasonable. They say the Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, the New York Times is reasonable, I’m the only one who thinks this is a story, and they think I’m unfair and biased by pursuing it.

Meanwhile, the Obama White House and the Holder DoJ can cry me a freaking river.
