CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson, stonewalled on Benghazi, looking for next big story to cover

CBS News investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson did Congress’s work for them last week by tweeting, the day before Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Congressional testimony, an extensive list of unanswered questions about the deadly Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. Unfortunately, members of Congress chose to turn the event into a Hillary Clinton love-fest, making the chance of getting definitive answers from the Obama administration even more slim.

So, what’s the last real reporter in America supposed to cover in the meantime? Attkisson turned to Twitter for suggestions, and gave some of her own.

Indeed! It’s been quite a drought. There are plenty of “real journalists” on Twitter; would anyone like to pitch in so Attkisson doesn’t have to do all of the lifting herself?
