Attkisson Targeted for Reporting on Fast and Furious

Newly released documents show the White House and Justice Department targeted investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson in hopes of thwarting her reporting for CBS News on the secretive government operation called Fast and Furious.

In an email exchange, a press aide to Attorney General Eric Holder tells a spokesman for President Obama that Attkisson is “out of control” and says she plans to complain to Bob Schieffer, a CBS veteran of four decades and the network’s chief Washington correspondent.

The exchange is among documents obtained by government watchdog group Judicial Watch, which sought information from the Justice Department as part of a 2012 Freedom of Information Act request and lawsuit against the federal agency.
