Reporter: A Government Agency Bugged My Computer

Big Brother Is Watching

A former CBS News reporter who quit the network over claims it kills stories that put President Obama in a bad light says she was spied on by a “government-related entity” that planted classified documents on her computer.

In her new memoir, Sharyl Attkisson says a source who arranged to have her laptop checked for spyware in 2013 was “shocked” and “flabbergasted” at what the analysis revealed.

“This is outrageous. Worse than anything Nixon ever did. I wouldn’t have believed something like this could happen in the United States of America,” Attkisson quotes the source saying.

She speculates that the motive was to lay the groundwork for possible charges against her or her sources.

  1. I would bet money she was using Windows software on her operating system.
    As to which agency did this, it could have been anyone agency out there. The history shows all of them seem to have no moral or ethical problem with false witness against any individual they deem a threat to themselves.
    There is no punishment in our court system for these individuals breaking the law. I do not see an agency with internal affairs policing the actions of the agency here.
    It was just good fortune that she ran across a tech capable of locating this “classified” information.
    No one is safe from this kind of intrusion no matter what kind of computer you are using.
    The agencies no longer have any kind of control over the activity of people in the agency. That appears to be the case.
    That is bringing “scary” to an entirely new level.
    The question in my mind is what if anything is the Congress prepared to do to the agencies involved?
    My opinion is “NOTHING” will be done.
