Product Description

Review

A deep, nuanced and indignant indictment of the players who have made investigative journalism harder to conduct, even if those actors are other journalists. (Kirkus Reviews)

“Attkisson offers a harrowing and gripping account of journalism as practiced these days in Washington. She skillfully unveils how she discovered the secret scheme to spy on her. The larger and more disturbing takeaway is how the mainstream are falling down on the job.” (Jeff Gerth, Pulitzer Prize winning former investigative reporter for the New York Times)

From the Back Cover

Who’s been hacking Sharyl Attkisson’s computers? Computers that turn themselves on in the night, make strange noises, then shut themselves down. Whoever is doing it is using highly sophisticated spyware available only to our top intelligence agencies. Is someone sending Attkisson a message?

Washington, D.C., has always been a tough town for investigative journalists. But in the age of Obama, the government has taken the tried-and-true techniques of bureaucratic stonewalling to unprecedented heights. What’s more, it has added harassment, intimidation, and outright spying to the mix.

Through more than thirty years as an award-winning investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson fought tirelessly to uncover wrongdoing by those in power, whether major corporations, government officials, or presidential administrations of both parties. But when she started looking into stories involving the Obama administration’s mistakes and misjudgments in a series of high-profile cases—stories few in mainstream journalism would touch—she was confronted with the administration’s use of hardball tactics to discourage, block, and actively suppress her investigative work.

A dogged reporter with a well-earned reputation as a “pit bull,” Attkisson filed a series of groundbreaking stories on the Fast and Furious gunwalking program, Obama’s green energy boondoggle, the unanswered questions about Benghazi, and the disastrous rollout of Obamacare. Her news reports were met with a barrage of PR warfare tactics, including emails and phone calls up the network chain of command, criticism from paid-for commenters and bloggers, and a campaign of character assassination that continues to this day. Most disturbing of all, Attkisson reveals that as she broke news on Fast and Furious and Benghazi, her computers and phone lines were hacked and bugged by an unrevealed but tremendously sophisticated party.

Stonewalled is the story of the Obama administration’s efforts to monitor journalists, intimidate and harass opposition groups, and spy on private citizens. But it is also a searing indictment of the timidity of the press and the dangerous decline of investigative journalism and unbiased truth telling in America today.

Format: Hardcover
Attkisson has presented us with a well-written, well-researched, thoughtful, and forthright story. It almost reads like the alarm of a whistleblower!

There is no credible way to counter her tale. Attkisson is a well-respected, award winning journalist. She has always been a straight shooter regardless of party affiliation. But when she attempted to delve into the Benghazi coverup, the left-leaning CBS executives stifled her efforts. Her subsequent resignation proves that she has class and scruples in addition to her investigative skills.

This account further proves that the alphabet stations have been deep in the tank for Obama and Hillary.

The author makes reference to a Gallup poll that evinces the "...all-time low and confidence in TV news... Is it recoverable? Or too far gone?" I feel that all situations are recoverable, but in this case there'll have to be enormous changes at the top

Excellent book. Ms. Attkisson writes with authority and the authenticity that her experience has given her comes through loud and clear. Never condescending and always providing precise context the reader is left with no doubt that they are getting an insiders view of the current state of corruption of American media by self serving politicians and power brokers.

The take away from this book is that you cannot and should not ever trust the legacy "main stream" media to be giving you the unvarnished truth. It is filtered and homogenized to suit the political and/or monetary interests of the corporate hierarchy. The issue of just why and by whom Ms. Attkisson's computers systems were monitored and tampered with will provide many AhHa moments for the conspiracy lover in all of us.

All in all a great book. HIghly recommended.

A good read that I difficulty putting down. Although there appears to be some sour grapes involved (and I wouldn't blame her in the least), if nothing else this book is making me view "the news" from a different perspective, a very cynical one.

Great book! Especially for journalists! Just sad that now she seems to be labelled as a conservative voice and pro-republican. Reading her book gives a good idea to what looks like american politics. A long read, but a very good one!
