CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson Opens Up About Hacking To O’Reilly, Says ‘I Think I Know’ Who Did It

CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson sat down with Bill O’Reilly tonight to talk about her recent revelation that her work and home computers were hacked. She described to O’Reilly how she noticed her computers starting up randomly at night, and while she did not say anything directly, she did acknowledge that she has a suspicion of who did it.

Attkisson told O’Reilly that while she was concerned about hackers getting access to her personal finances, that information was not compromised. She said the stories she was working on were Fast & Furious, a “green energy debacle” story, and Benghazi. O’Reilly couldn’t help but notice how all of these stories were ones that painted the Obama administration in a negative light.

Attkisson said she got technical help before going to CBS with her concerns. O’Reilly noted the next thing to do is “sue somebody,” and asked Attkisson who’s under suspicion. Attkission explained she has attorneys advising her not to come forth with all that information. O’Reilly remarked, “I assume you have a suspicion.” Attkission admitted, “Well, I think I know.”
