Sharyl Atkisson is currently an investigative correspondent in the CBS News Washington Bureau. She was a CNN anchor from 1990 to 1993 before becoming anchor of "CBS News: Up to the Minute". Originally from Sarasota, FL, she graduated from the University of Florida in 1982 with a degree in broadcast journalism.
She has received numerous Emmy awards and nominations, as well as many other prestigious honors for her outstanding investigative reporting. Sharyl has continued that uncompromising excellence with her hard-hitting probes into the emerging ATF/DOJ "Operation Fast & Furious" scandal and resulting coverup.
Attkisson has been one of the very few "mainstream" media figures that have aggressively and objectively pursued the outrageous gun-walking story, despite extraordinary pressure from the Obama Administration, the Department of Justice, and even her own colleagues to back off. Most recently, a senior White House official actually screamed and cursed at her for daring to ask tough questions about Attorney General Eric Holder's obvious lack of candor while testifying before Congress.
Every American who values truth and accountability on the part of our government at the highest levels, owes a debt of gratitude to Sharyl Attkisson, a classic, old-school, investigative reporter and elegant professional, who refuses to be intimidated by anyone while pursuing real news that should be of great interest to every taxpayer and elected official.
