Explosive: CBS Makes Top Reporter A Targeted Individual

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Sharyl Attkisson


Note: Dedicated to Targeted Individual Susan Watkins


CBS’s top investigative reporter became a targeted individual due to her blowing the whistle on issues no other reporter would or could, according to an explosive account by Jon Rappoport for Activist Post this week.



“Gone, resigned, floating free, unchained, now viewed by the news establishment as an outsider, a defector, a weirdo with an axe to grind,” is how Rappoport describes the famed CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson.



Rappoport authored two explosive collections, The Matrix Revealed and Exit From the Matrix. He was a candidate for a US Congressional seat in the 29th District of California. Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, he has worked as an investigative reporter for 30 years, writing articles on politics, medicine, and health for CBS Healthwatch, LA Weekly, Spin Magazine, Stern, and other newspapers and magazines in the US and Europe. Jon has delivered lectures and seminars on global politics, health, logic, and creative power to audiences around the world. 



“It did get to the point were there was not a lot left for me to do,” Attkisson reiterated about her experience of being workplace mobbed (professionally bullied at work) in an interview with Brian Stelter on CNN’s Reliable Sources.



Attkisson alleged a culture among some sectors at CBS News was hesitant about airing any story critical of the government. She mentioned ”producers that decide what gets on a program during a given day.”


Like every single targeted individual that has reached out to Deborah Dupré over the past eight years for help, recognition and advocacy, Attkisson was fired for doing a damn good job in the best interest of the public.


Attkisson is known for tackling controversial stories for CBS. She catapulted in fame four years ago when she exposed the Swine Flu fraud. High-profile medical doctors, such as Dr. Joseph Mercola and human rights organizations, such as the National Vaccine Information Center hailed her professionalism and integrity in reporting on her meticulously researched swine flu story, showing that the vaccine was a scam.


It was not the swine flu reporting, however, that was the final straw for Attkisson at CBS. It was Benghazi.


“Just as she was digging below the surface of the Obama coverup, she was cut off and shut down by her network bosses,” Rappaport says. “Here’s the crux. The Rhodes brothers. 


Ben Rhodes, David Rhodes


Ben is a deputy national security advisor to Obama. Ben writes speeches for the president.


“In September 2012, Ben was ‘instrumental,’ according to ABC News, in changing the White House talking points (the story) on what happened in Benghazi,” Rappaport explains. “Ben’s brother, David, is president of CBS News. Attkisson was working for David. She was investigating all the changes (12) in the Benghazi talking points.”


That’s when Attkisson was shut down. If she did not realize that she was targeted before then, she knew by then.


“Attkisson struck gold on Swine Flu,” Rappaport says. “You know, the pandemic that wasn’t. She discovered that the CDC, which is tasked with tracking numbers of cases of outbreaks, had, get this, stopped counting Swine Flu cases in America. Stopped. But the CDC was still trumpeting the extreme danger of Swine Flu, with no way to measure its true impact.


“Dr. Peter Doshi, long after the whole Swine Flu dud was over, wrote a stunning report for the British Medical Journal Online. Seems that every year, hundreds of thousands of samples from suspected and diagnosed flu patients are sent to labs for analysis—and only about 16% of these samples turn out to be positive for the flu.

“That’s a killer of a revelation. Among other things, it means that most people who are told they have the flu couldn’t possibly have been protected by any flu vaccine, even assuming the vaccines are useful and effective…because these people don’t have the flu.

“I wrote Attkisson about Dr. Doshi’s finding, and she got back to me, in essence saying, well, yes, this is why the CDC stopped counting Swine Flu cases.

“Huge numbers of people who were being diagnosed with Swine Flu didn’t have any kind of flu at all.”


Back during her remarkably exposing the Swine Flu fraud, going up against the pharmaceutical giants and Obama administration officials profiting from the scam, Dr. Mercola interviewed Attkisson. He asked Attkisson if she was fearful and how she managed to stay above the goons who target such people for standing up against corporate government. Her answer? She said she’d learned to develop a thick skin to protect her against such perps. Then, Attkisson was dead silent on the swine flu scandal. Her CBS expose was also scrubbed. She would later come back swinging, but for the time being, she’d been seemingly gagged.


Targeted Individuals (TI) find that even thick skin does not shield them from workplace mobbing, being driven from meaningful employment, or having their computers hacked. Every self-identified TI known to this author is also “stalked,” kept under surveillance, followed day and night, from the time they leave their homes, to wherever they go, and back home again. Most report that “stalkers” park outside their homes, watching, waiting… until whatever they will do next.


Like other TIs, and as experienced by this reporter, particularly at another news outlet where this author publishes, Attkisson began noticing computer hacking. Filing reports or complaining about such hacking gets a TI nowhere – except a step closer toward being fired. “Investigations” of computer or Internet hacking lead nowhere when corporate government wants to shut down one of their targets.


“Attkisson’s computers, at work and at home, were hacked while she was still at CBS,” Rappoport says. “The network acknowledged this and said ‘they were investigating’.



“They’re still investigating. So are other unnamed entities.”


Who hacked her computers? CBS? The White House? NSA?


Whichever unknown entity it is that’s conducting the hacking, one thing for certain: It does it with impunity.



For many TIs, their computers are not only their ways to earn as an independent contractor after workplace mobbed. It is also their primary means of connecting with others for support. Such support is critically important to their existence. Remove that, and their lifeline is cut.



Exposing Hillary Clinton’s leading role in the Fast and Furious scandal was another example of Attkisson’s coverage for CBS.  



“CBS shut down Attkisson on both the Fast&Furious story and the Swine Flu story,” Rappaport says.



Attkisson was nominated for a 2013 Emmy in investigative journalism in a newscast category for her work on a report, Libya: Dying for Security.



“Here’s an interesting bombshell,” Rappoport says. “On April 1, 2011, Attkisson authored a piece for CBS News, Vaccines and Autism: a new scientific review. She dispelled the notion that the vaccine-autism connection was a dead issue. All sorts of red flags went up the flagpole. Mainstream media are supposed to treat vaccines, all vaccines, as holy sacraments of the medical cartel. Praise them, bow down to them, never accuse them of doing harm of any kind.


Sumner Redstone, executive chairman of CBS, Attkisson’s employer, has a big stake in vaccines. His Foundation states on its website: “The Sumner M. Redstone Foundation’s contribution to the Global Poverty Project raising $118 million in pledges for vaccines…”


Rappoport points out that ”Redstone’s Foundation has donated $1 million to a charity called Autism Speaks, which supports genetic testing for the diagnosis of Autism. You can be sure this charity has zero interest in reviving the vaccine-Autism debate and exposing the fact that there is most definitely a connection.


“So Attkisson was stepping on Sumner Redstone’s toes with heavy boots,” Rappoport says.


Like many other TIs, determined to get their stories out about what it’s like to be neutralized in a world of people who fail to recognize how sophisticated the operatives are, and how they exist and participate in targeting at every level of society, and how well organized the are, Attkisson is writing a book.



“When published, it’ll land in the mainstream news cycle for a week or two at the most, Rappoport says. “Doesn’t matter how explosive its revelations are. She’s an outsider now. She isn’t in the loop. She isn’t playing the game according to the rules.”


Rappoport then suggests that Attkisson do what could be apprapos for each and every reporter exposing the estimated 350,000 TIs in the United States alone: Come out swinging. Blast the whole rotting news establishment.


“However, if Attkisson is angling for a new job at, say, FOX, or even CNN, whose ratings have gone down the toilet, she’ll have to pull her punches. Every major news outlet sits on its own reporters and gags them when things get too hot,” he asserts. “The first casualty in mainstream news is the truth.”


This story sheds a light on why this author, researcher, and community developer remains an independent contractor. It also highlights why, from this date forward, whether a TI’s story is verified or not, she will write and publish them if that is what the TI asks. 


Rappoport’s words demonstrate how most people, including even family members and close friends of TIs, view not only the Attkisson story, but that of all TIs covertly persecuted in odd ways seemingly impossible and alleged by only people with mental health issues: “Nothing to see there, move along, eyes straight ahead, go back to sleep, zombie-zombie, it’s all good don’t worry, be happy, hope and change, the audacity of whatever.”


Every day, without exaggeration or exception, at least one TI writes to Dupré asking her to write and publish their story. For some of these targets, it is possibly their only hope for deserved recogniiton that they are innocent but being unjustly persecuted for doing the right thing, working for the betterment of humanity.


This week, a TI, one who’d asked for her story be told, a typical sordid TI story of being persecuted, fearful of stalkers, and afraid that death threats would turn to reality, did exactly what her perpetrators wanted, as many TIs eventually do when they find no one believes them or cares enough to advocate for them.


She committed suicide. Her name was Susan Watkins. May her death not be in vain.

      Americans – Like Nazi Germans – Don’t Notice that All of Our Rights Are Slipping Away (Part 22)!
      “Food For Thought”
      Hello: When Are Americans Going To Wake Up?-God Bless America!
      Semper Fi!

        Thank you. I often feel 100% convinced the Nazis rule the US and are embedded in every level of society continuing the work of Hitler. Remember, he had said they only lost the battle – not the war. They won the bloody war and are reaping the benefits now, getting rid of every individual of integrity to ensure they continue winning. Yes, just like Nazi Germany, Jake.

        And just like Germans said then as Gypsies and disabled and Jews were persecuted , “We didn’t know,” so Americans say today about TIs, even those in their own families and neighborhoods, as they turn there heads and continue walking.

      Sumner Redstone was born Rothstein. I’ve often wondered if he is related to Arnold Rothstein, the Jewish gangster who tried to fix the 1919 world series.

      this is so terribly sad and tragic.
      Had I known about her predicament I would have offered her a home! and a friend and family! until she felt as though she had regained her will to fight these mother effing bass turds.

      In this world, we shouldn’t be prepared to pick up a weapon to end ourselves when we have lost everything; but, rather, as Jesus said, we should be prepared to ruin ourselves economically by selling everything we have to purchase weapons and to follow Him.

      So, when the enemy destroys us economically, that is just the beginning of the fight.

      I want to apologize for the earlier draft of this article. It was not ready for publishing, done in too much haste before I was called away from my desk for an appointment. I’m determined to do better by te self-identified Targeted Individuals. There is no group that I’m aware that’s more vulnerable, less supported or understood. and more in need of recognition.

      This cohort consists of the world’s finest people – yet are being singled out to be persecuted the most, too often, lethally bullied. Best courage to each of you. 2014 is the year when your treatment is being exposed better than ever. There is hope. Think of how once upon a time, women raped were ridiculed, told it was their fault and certainly not helped?

      That’s how it is for TIs today. But remember, the day is coming when TIs will be able to look back and say, “We’ve come a long way,” and the perpetrators of this crime against humanity will be recognized held accountable.

      Thanks for getting the word out, Deborah. I wish Sharyl Attkinson and other TI’s would form a site or organization and get their messages and stories out to a wider audience. Eventually, oppressors as the Rhodes Bros douches will lose this war on truth.

      Sad about Susan Watkins. Suicide my ass. More like “forced”. How do the perps live with themselves? Must be sadists.
