    So what happened to your claim that my positions are unfounded? Shall we compare sources? The examples in her book are all fully sourced and first hand accounts are detailed. Her book is about 95% examples and 5% conclusions, quite the opposite of any tell-all based on third hand accounts and rumors. You really should read it. It also includes examples of Republican scandals that she investigated. She is not a partisan. Here's a list of her awards.



    You really need to broaden your news intake beyond those outlets that confirm your opinions.

    I can guarantee that I read and watch a much wider variety of news outlets than you do.

    She is a joke.

    I have one. Sits in the drawer. Books since I was big enough to get on the Bookmobile that stopped in front of my house.

    Suggest one investigative reporter you admire who confronts power and seeks the truth and has done so for more than 20 years, to both sides of the political spectrum.

    She has and that's not a joke.

    I can name several. Rachel Maddow, Helen Thomas, Nora Ephron, Marie Colvin. Attkisson isn't worthy to lick their feet.

    Do you sense any partisan slant to Maddow's reporting...?

    Yes, she is an unabashed liberal, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have her finger on the pulse of DC.

    If I wanted to read total bullshit about a President I would have started with Dreams of my Father.
