As Twitchy reported earlier, former CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson is leaving the network after 20 years. Attkisson has most recently doggedly pursued stories such as Benghazi, as well as Fast & Furious and the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups.
Fox News’ Brit Hume described the end of Attkisson’s CBS News career this way:
The liberal culture of the major networks news division claims a scalp. All the best to her. “@SharylAttkisson: I have resigned from CBS.”
— Brit Hume (@brithume) March 10, 2014
According to Politico, Attkisson “reached an agreement to resign” from CBS News after she’d “grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias.”
Hume retweeted this:
Attkisson won an emmy for her investigative reporting about GOP fundraising. CBS execs now accuse her of being "agenda-driven."

Go figure. If Attkisson had instead worked at MSNBC for three days she might have already won a Cronkite Award.
